    The chefs recently served dishes like hamachi crudo, Maine sea urchin with soba, cod with smoked bacon and beets, pork belly with roasted fruit, beef ribeye, and duck with black kale. Read more

    One of the best restaurants in Carroll Gardens. Loved the spaghetti Nero as app. Endive salad is great side share. Lamb ribs = yum. For cocktails: Meyer lemon smash (bourbon) or Earl Swizzle (rum).

    Easily the best, most inventive restaurant I've been to in the last year. Every bite is packed with different textures and flavors. Lamb tortellini and cod are delicious. Get the lemon thyme cake!

    Brilliant little nook on Carroll Street. The brunch menu was selective but heavenly. The best part, the chef made us a 'chocolate surprise' even though they don't serve dessert for brunch! Loved it!

    From Ryan Sutton's 2 star review: "Cod in an aioli-thickened fish fumet, a culinary ode to the color off-white, is as meaty and buttery as blanquette de veau." Read more

    The tasting menu was incredible (and they can substitute items for vegetarian/pescaterian). Their Creme brûlée is one of the best desserts I've had in a very long time. Go!

    Jump in a cab, do not walk. Have the tasting menu and I liked sitting at the bar. Matthew, the mixologist, made a melange of cocktails that weren't even on the menu. Reco high!!!

    Wonderful restaurant, great service. Good enough to make Manhattanites trek to Brooklyn. Try the tasting menu, and feel free to make substitutions!

    Peach en Papillote comes out steaming hot, with the peaches wrapped in parchment paper and swimming in brown butter. Bonus: There are pistachios sprinkled on top.

    On the menu find eggs benedict, shrimp étouffée, and a few holdovers from the dinner menu, like lamb ribs with eggplant, peanut, and mint.

    We wanted to love this place so much. It's in our hood. However, it took 1.5 hours until we received our entrees. The food was fantastic, but we felt pretty forgotten. Maybe it was a fluke?

    Best brunch in the neighborhood. Every dish was perfect and service top notch. On the pricey side but totally worth it.

    The pasta is unbelievable. Menu changes regularly and everything is always delicious. Best restaurant in the neighborhood.

    We can’t choose a favorite from the Raw dishes – we love them all. But an ace dinner order = Summer Squash + Lobster + Lamb Ribs! The Orange Julius cocktail is the perfect dessert!

    Service was incredible, food & wine excellent, the setting could be better considering how good the other two were. Inside too cold & noisy, outside too quiet and awkward, need some background music.

    Quaint neighborhood feel, with incredible food to pair. Get the 7 course tasting menu if you want an experience.

    Foursquare's 8.8 rating is a travesty for cooking (and service) of this calibre. Up there with La Vara (and Battersby - same chefs).

    It's pricey, but the food and service do not disappoint. Indoor ambiance is the weakest link here, so sit outside if weather permits.

    The Vietnamese inflected fall-off-the-bone lamb ribs are a delight.
