Restaurants, Mediterranean Fort Greene

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Terra cotta floors and antique mirrors give the dining room its taverna personality, backed by a transporting Mediterranean menu of falafel-crusted artichoke hearts; salty halloumi cheese, pan-fried with harissa oil; osso buco of monkfish with sauce Basquaise; and mushroom risotto with pistachio oil. The presentation is rough and ready, but service is pleasingly snappy. The caramel affogato–ice cream served with a pot of steaming espresso poured over the top–should be considered non-negotiable.
