Let me begin with the great: the food. Excellent selection and creative pairings of food and spice. That alone makes this a destination. We could see that there is a plan for an outdoor space -- which on a summer eve would be lovely. However, I have two concerns: the noise and the pricing.
The noise level is almost painful -- with brick and wood walls and hard floors, the echos and the din make conversation around a larger table difficult at best. Further, like Saul, these are Manhattan prices in Brooklyn. And while have loved the food, I felt it was pricey for the atmosphere and neighborhood feel. I dont mind the prices at Picholine, as elegance and crisp service goes a long way. But in a room that feels "down-home" and the noise of a rambunctious family gathering, even with great food, the pricing should be moderated.
I am sure that we will return, and we would be interested in the tasting menu, but I will seek an off hour in the hopes of enjoying this wonderful food in a more peaceful environment.
