We had a plaesent evening last weekend. The menu in a selection of exquisite combinations of devirse culinary origins, like a doughnut foie gras that delights your senses and at the same time you never could imagine those things together. This is a perfect place to try new flavors. Take note that reservations are not taken, although is very comfortable to dine at the bar. Also be aware that they only take cash for the moment. The staff is incredibly kind and helpful. We live in Manhattan but we are definetly looking forward to visit them many times more.

I have known about this restaurant since one of the owners, Justin Warner, started posting about it on Facebook. I read all the great reviews about the whacky/interesting/fun/delicious food and couldn't wait to find an opportunity to go and experience it myself. That opportunity presented itself when my sister and I were meeting in NYC for another occasion. We arrived on a Friday night around 6:45pm to an empty restaurant. We perused the menu, ordered drinks and some small plates and relaxed. My sister had vodka martini, and I had a tequila drink that resembled a margarita, but better. It wasn't frozen, but a little icy, which made it the perfect temperature. It had the right amount of lime and no sweetness with a red pepper floating on top that added a hint of spiciness. YUM!! Our only complaint was that the drinks were very small and we each had 3. Our waitress was very attentive and never rushed us when we told her we wanted to take our time and still be there when the house filled up. By 8pm the house was hopping with diners.
My sister knew very little about the restaurant and went along with my "must haves" to share - the fois gras doughnut, and the nippon nachos. She then chose the E666s with octopus for further sharing. The fois gras doughnut was absolutely exquisite! Neither of us had ever tasted anything like it and each bite was savored with delight. The nippon nachos were tasty and the E666s were yummy - a little salty, but the flavors were complex and unusual. We then each ordered a "protein" - my sister had a roasted fish fillet with slightly warm lettuce type greens which she enjoyed. I had the fish and chips and it was delicious. The fish was crispy on the outside, moist on the inside and simply seasoned, if at all. The fries were so delicious with the onion type relish on top of them. I ate a portion of the fish and packed up more than half of it to take home, sharing alot of the fries with my sister. We didn't even consider dessert!
The whole experience was wonderful - delicious strange and fun food combinations, funky atmosphere and attentive and friendly service. I will want to go back to try some of the other dishes that looked so good, and my sister is already talking about going back with her newly married son and daughter-in-law. Keep up the good work Do or Dine!!

The "restaurant around the corner" was recommended to us by a local. It has only been opened very recently and the young crew does a terrific job, not only for the cooking but also to get some publicity. The menu is simply different and very creative. We tasted different dishes and the four of is would all say that we have not eaten anything alike before. The combinations were unusual, risky but very delicious. We all enjoyed a wonderful meal in a very special setting and at a reasonable price. A dining experience of its own! We wil certainly go back if we return to Brooklyn and hope the motivated team has the power to continue the concept they started to make their restaurant something very special
