No, Brooklyn Girl is not a new American Girl doll that comes with a fixie unicycle, a bottle of kombucha, and a DIY arm-tat kit. Instead it's an eclectically decor'd neighborhood eatery from a husband-and-BK-born-wife team (formerly behind recently-closed Trattoria Acqua) where patrons'll be served as-local-as-possible New American fare on Amish-built tables made in Penn, which is one of the only things those dudes can use anyway.
The Food: The fluctuating menu will range from smaller bites like Baja roasted corn with cilantro/ cotija/ lime, to oyster sliders with a whole grain mustard aioli, to head-to-tail wood-fired animals like free-range duck with ginger & honey. They'll also drop heartier numbers like Gnocchi & Short Rib with a Chianti au jus, a “Williams Burger” (with add-ables like pork belly, fried oysters, or Cherry Wood bacon), or wood-oven pies like the spicy Italian sausage/ pepperoni/ chili flake/ pepperoncini/ sweet onion/ mozz “Michael's Choice” which, unlike Sophie's Choice, will only kill the rest of your afternoon.
The Drank: The wraparound liquid-kitchen's keeping all ages happy with Brooklyn's own P&H Sodas, 12 mostly local drafts alongside 26 farther-reaching bottles, nearly 60 vinos priced at $10 over wholesale, and a 10-strong house 'tail menu highlighted by the impeccably timed May Grey (gin, honeyed Earl Grey iced tea, Cointreau & lemon) and the rum/ lemon/ blueberries/ turbinado/ ginger beer “Bluebeard”, also what they called Smurfette during the period when she lived with Vanity Smurf.
The Chef's Pantry: Starting next weekend, they'll be opening up at 7:30a to serve passerby breakfast & lunch sandos, plus pastas and smoked meats, while their full coffee bar (featuring three or four pour-over coffees per day) is certainly nothing to toy with, either.
