    This place is a winner with an affordable but high-quality tasting menu, unpretentious ambience, and quite possibly the best duck I have ever tasted. My only complaint would be the poor service.
  • Nicholas M.
    Skip Luger and go here instead. Same price but better and more diverse offerings.

    Try the scallop ceviche, and the roasted baby carrots. Bread is delicious, and cocktails are great!

    The duck! Wow! So good. It reminded me of a perfectly cooked New York strip steak, but with a crunchy, caramelized, spicy skin. Perfect.

    Tasting menu. Really unique approach where not everyone gets the same item.

    Amazing tasting menu with a few surprises here and there. Make special requests at the beginning if you have preferences (I love scallops haha). Cocktails were just okay, stick with wine maybe?

    Cute outdoor seating on a quieter Williamsburg street. Coffee cocktail is delicious with brunch!

    Meadowsweet is awesome. Been here a few times and every meal has been delicious. It's a bit of a "special occasion" kind of place though - a bit pricey.

    Those delightful microgreens on your raviolo? Oh, those were grown in the restaurant, on the herb mezzanine. The menu rotates daily to feature fresh ingredients, but mains typically max out at $30. Read more

    The pan-seared Atlantic tile fish special was special. Small portions of everything, but everything was delicious.

    Everything we tried was great-fluke crudo, cavatelli, black sea bass, hanger steak, and the panna cotta. Order the Smoke Gets in Your Rye cocktail.

    Everything -- pasta, salad, burrata -- was twice as salty as it should have been

    Everything I've had here is excellent. Short rib was a highlight. Recently had a pork loin served with a side of bacon, also delicious. Not cheap, but worth it.

    You're making a mistake if you don't go with at least one order of the donut holes. Trust.

    Great date spot for Michelin starred New American at reasonable prices. The steak and short ribs was fantastic and big enough for two. Crispy artichoke salad and pastries, too.

    Save room for desserts: the pastry chef likes to cut loose, drizzling ice cream with olive oil or sprinkling marcona almonds on a lemon ice cream tart. Read more

    Fantastic tasting! For 2, each person gets a different dish per course essentially letting you try the whole menu. Everything was great but the pastas, seafood and steak entrees stood out.

    The tasting menu is a great value and I was pleasantly surprised that my boyfriend and I mostly got different dishes, allowing us to sample more! Standouts were crispy artichokes and squid ink pasta

    The scallops were a stand out from an excellent 5-course tasting menu, with brilliantly matched wines thanks to an engaged and enthusiastic sommelier.

    SO GOOD!!! We had a selection of the apps to share and I had the truffle pasta - delish. Great service and beautiful space (former desslers). Nice outdoor seating as well.

    The omelette is deliciously healthy. Get a cup of punch to wash it down and end with the house donuts, freshly made! But the best part is most definitely the music, great tunes 👌

    One of the best brunches I've ever had. Excellent service, low prices, quality food, attentive staff. Get the fry sauce/dip.

    All 3 egg variations at my table were prepared perfectly at brunch. The poached eggs were 2 tear drop shaped piles of deliciousness on top of a savory bed of duck confit. Highly recommended.

    The restaurant succeeding The Dressler has been turned into an American-Mediterranean restaurant by chef Polo Dobkin. Brunch is the ideal meal here, thanks to the generous amount of natural lighting.

    Everything on this menu is really special and delicious. Hand rolled pasta app was amazing. The plancha marina was a modest main course and I suffered food envy to those who ordered other stuff.

    At Meadowsweet Polo, Dobkin treats octopus like a bathing beauty in this hyper-attractive presentation flavored with chorizo, basil oil, and thin strips of glistening red pepper. Read more

    Chef Polo Dobkin returns to his old stomping grounds. The space is lighter and brighter now, and the brunch menu includes huevos rancheros, a burger, and fresh doughnuts with jam.
  • Jacqueline V.
    Portion size was small for a $30 bass. About the size of a fist. The host/owner didn't pull out chair OR table. (Bad etiquette). Food was good overall. Steak needed more S&P though.
  • Benjamin P.
    Benjamin PalmerAugust 11, 2014
    its all quite good! the apps stand out the most - soups, trout salad. Maybe get a few more small dishes to share vs a standard entree?
  • Steve S.

    An absolutely amazing new spot. Food is killer, drinks out of this world, and the transformation of the space from Dressler is rather unbelievable. A real must try.

    Pastry chef Jared Rubin cooks peaches in caramel, stuffs them into a classic puff pastry, bakes it all, and serves it hot with cool housemade lemon-verbena ice cream that has blueberry jam swirled in.

    Best restaurant in bk. Every bite is a party in your mouth. Sample one plate from all 4 categories. Ra ra rye rocks. Chef polo is the man too. Get here before Michelin madness strikes.

    Perfect service and apps are amazing. Looking forward to more. Better than the Dressler so far (as it occupies the same space). Love the decor, wine list.. All!
