Time Out says

Northeast Kingdom alum Kevin Adey expands on his alma mater's locavore ethos at this modern Italian outfit, milling upstate flour in house for pastas like gnocchi sardi with goat and green-garlic lumache with poached egg. A wood-burning oven cranks out meaty mains for plates that change daily, like duck breast with rhubarb and fennel, and strip loin with silage-roasted potatoes—as the menu touts, all the carne is dutifully sourced from Autumn's Harvest Farms in Romulus, New York. Overlooking the open kitchen in the front of house lies an eight-seat bar focused on American craft beers, an extensive wine list, and seasonal cocktails.

I never make it over to Brooklyn, but Faro was worth the trip. I'm a fan of great Italian food - the homemade pastas, melt-in-your-mouth duck, creative and refreshing tuna tartare, etc. were affordable, all while being a Michelin rated restaurant. This is an amazing restaurant to go to for a casual night out or for a special occasion.

Faro is a gem off the Jefftown stop along the L.  The food is creative, innovative, and delicious.  They just received their first Michelin Star as well, so if you haven't gone yet, time to go.  The pasta is made in house- super fresh. 

best pasta I've ever had, and right in my own neighborhood. the bartender Victor is a real gem and suggested a unique rose for us too!

Chef Kevin is such an inspiration, the food really comes from the heart to the table!

Faro makes its own pastas, and the dishes are ever-changing. If you want a fancier dinner out, this place is for you. The down side is that the portions are not huge and the place is pricey, but everything I've eaten has been delicious, especially the fazzoletti and the fluke crudo.
