This New American eatery in Park Slope turns out meat-centric mains like braised short ribs, culotte steak in caramelized onion soubise, and dry-aged burgers paired with locally grown produce. Tucked out back is a lush garden patio complete with stone-slab walkways and glowing string lights during warmer months.

To our delight, we came here for dinner and found out that Monday's feature half-priced wine! Below is a pic of our appetizer, the spicy lobster salad, a fruity and refreshing opener to this big meal. The staff was so friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. The menu itself was small but full of diverse options -- the steak was great, the fries were decent (home fries are way better), and the spaetzel was a cool addition, though the creamed spinach was way too creamy. Overall a lovely meal.


A cozy spot especially for Brooklyn carnivores, but easy to enjoy for everyone. Great for both one-on-one dates and dinner with friends (I enjoyed the latter and saw many of the former), the vibe is intimate and quiet. As a huge fan of bread baskets, the salty, flavored butter that came complimentary was also a plus!
