Small local restaurant in Park Slope with superlative tasting food. The portions are small by American standards, but perfect for a multi-course meal. All four diners cleared starters and mains without a scrap left on the plate. Those who had dessert also ate everything put...More

Better known perhaps for brunch this restaurant serves a fine dinner as well. Portions are un-American on the smaller side but very tasteful and pleasantly presented. Nice staff too, a good find in the neighborhood. Not a lot of seating so make reservations (our Yelp...More
