Ever encounter a menu so exquisite that you can’t decide what to order? Why not taste everything! This Brooklyn hot spot is now accepting reservations for its 5 and 7 course tasting menus.

No sign, reservations are hard to come by, no phone, email is tough, but once you're in you never want to leave and you wish your stomach was twice or three times the size. The kale salad is THE dish, the pasta with sea urchin is to die for even if you hate sea urchin, and if you thought that chicken parm was a rich dish, try suckling pig parm. These guys are cooking what's in season, local, and doing it to order. We did the spontaneous 7 course menu and there were 3 additional small complimentary courses. The service is casual yet flawless, I don't drink so they suggested some mock tails and I had two (some non alcoholic wine and something they made up according to the flavors I said I liked) and they were both delicious and refreshing. Now let me say that I am a foodie and not in the bad sense of the word. I cook and shop at the farmer's market and have been to more than a few of the cheap casual places, china town holes in the wall and more Michelin star places than I care to remember and in my recent memory I can't recall a better meal in a more friendly welcoming and warm environment. Take a date, a friend, your parents or even your 80 year old grandmother, or just take yourself and sit at the bar and hang with the bar tender for a memorable evening of gastronomical bliss.

I'm going to go back and just eat a hundred orders of Kale Salad. No, TWO hundred.

A jewel in Carroll Gardens. The place is tiny (24 seats with nearly half at the bar) but the cuisine is exalted. A foodie destination of the first order. The tasting menu (5 or 7 course options) with wine pairing is one of the best meals , and deals, in New York and the option with wine pairing raises the experience to the ethereal. Limited reservations by email only, so prepare to wait.

Impossible to get in..we went at 4:30 to get a table at 6:00. Teeny, super earnest slightly humorless waitstaff. Very effiecient though. Food was delicious, drinks were amazing.

It only took stalking the entrance at 5:15pm for their 5:30pm opening time on a Friday to easily get in and out on my first visit here. In hindsight, we should have done the tasting menu. We seemed to be the only ones who weren't! Service seemed to flow a bit slow though so don't be in too much of a rush. You'll want to be able to enjoy it. The kale salad that Bon Appetit raved about is delicious. It somehow manages to work even when eating it outdoors on a warm evening. Skip the pork tortellini and go for the short rib ragu fettucine. For a main course, I really enjoyed the berkshire pork belly parmigiana but be warned the tomato sauce is a bit overpowering and the pork flavor is a tad muted. I liked that it was pretty much what you'd expect from a parm prep but with pork belly. Nice.
