Grand Army is a laid-back place where you meet a friend for drinks and find yourself staying for hours, snacking on fancy toast topped with smoked shrimp and pickled ramps, market-fresh vegetables, a salad and crusty bread to spread with salt-flecked seaweed butter.
Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare
The only restaurant in Brooklyn with three Michelin stars to its name, this 18-seat French-Asian fusion spot brings a taste of uptown opulence to Downtown Brooklyn, serving up a tasting menu of more than 20 courses prepared in an intimate, unpretentious dining room overseen by chef Cesar Ramirez himself—who supervises the preparation of each course and interacts with the diners.
