Brian Leventhal and John Stires are giving their Williamsburg oenophile favorite, Brooklyn Winery, a sister with this skylight-warmed Crown Heights restaurant. To complement the winery’s hyperlocal vin—stuff like a barrel-fermented Finger Lakes riesling and a North Fork red blend, as well as a collection of the winery’s older vintages, all the way back to its first harvest—the team has tapped Bouley alum Michael Gordon to oversee a menu of pairing-ready plates: pickled beets with smoked ricotta and caramelized fennel; crispy brussels sprouts with house-made pastrami and apple-cider caramel; and root-beer–glazed pork ribs with baked beans. The space—decorated with mixed woods, potted plants and exposed ceiling beams— features a microwinery that produces experimental blends for the restaurant’s front bar.
