Tucked away in a quaint neighborhood is Brooklyn Girl Eatery, a quintessential upscale Italian restaurant rooted in Brooklyn blood. I had the pleasure of indulging here on my 25th birthday and was delighted from start to finish.
What I had: The whole table of friends shared their plates of food which is the only way I truly suggest to eat, especially in a more upscale setting. But what I ordered personally were three items. An appetizer of potato latkes with apple butter dipping sauce, duck and date salad (pictured) made of frisee, spinach, marcona almonds, banyals vinaigrette and oyster sliders made with whole grain mustard aioli served with salt & vinegar hill chips.
Come here if: you dig ecclectic decor, hanker some east coast influence meets a community-rooted and artisan driven atmosphere or simply want to celebrate any occasion that you can cheers a specialty cocktail with. It’s easy to let time escape while dwelling at Brooklyn Girl.
Expect to pay: $-$$$
