My wife and i just happened to stop in Brooklyn on our way to Manhattan. So glad we did. The Grocery for lunch was a delight. Charlie the owner has a passion for food and his restaurant. The food was outstanding and creative without being too complicated and overambitious. This place just feels right and we would encourage serious foodies to make the journey . The duck bbq was great and the slaw that came with it fantastic. The chocolate fig cake is not to be missed.

Charlie and Sharon provide a warm and wonderful experience, on Brooklyn's restaurant row -- Smith Street. Sophisticated menu (Charlie is known far and wide for his duck) in a small, perfect room, which buzzes with happy eaters all evening. Charlie and Sharon make themselves a known presence in the dining room, checking on service, chatting about the foods they cook so well. Very reasonably priced, for this high quality experience.

We came across this delicious place while looking for a restaurant with unique foods - and we found it! Don't be put off by the unassuming decor, the food is vibrant, interesting, creative. The service is great - very attentive without being fussy. The chef is entertaining and helpful. They know their wines - albeit a bit on the pricey side.

Below average food for a widely rated restaurant (fairly tried it a few times with the same result). Add the cheapest decor ever, uncomfortable seating, inattentive waiting service. Completely overrated and overpriced in my opinion.

Great Brooklyn Restaurant. Small Room. Little overpriced. Excellent! Nice outdoor seating in season. Very friendly and informative wait service as well as the owner/chef who likes to speak to all patrons. City prices.
