Under pressed-tin ceilings, neighborhood locavores dine on rustic American fare at this Brooklyn Heights spot, opened in 2009. Chef Lauren Gufgus sends out hearty plates made with seasonal ingredients, including meat loaf and mashed carrots, chicken legs with sugar snap peas and black-garlic jus, and a lamb burger with tomato chutney. Cap your meal with a cup of Counter Culture coffee—the restaurant got its start as a top-notch café.
