This affordable, sophisticated Brooklyn restaurant—evocative of a first-class dining car with its glossy blond wood paneling—consistently packs in local crowds. Much of the credit goes to chef Sohui Kim (Blue Hill, Annisa), whose Asian-inspired menu flirts with European influences in dishes like flavorful barramundi with brussels sprouts, apples and bacon in a sorrel-based sauce. Getting there (for non-Hookers) can be a tougher sell: Expect at least a ten-minute walk from the subway.
