As You Are
After opening its doors in Boerum Hill last summer, the Ace Hotel Brooklyn debuted its all-day ground-floor restaurant in the fall. Located at the nexus of several neighborhoods, at As You Are, chef Ryan Jordan (John Dory, The Breslin) uses the locale as inspiration to offer a new American menu saluting the culinary flair of its home borough. Signature dishes include Chicken Liver & Onion on a bay leaf madeleine; Octopus Mezcal Ragu with house-made radiatore; and Confit Lamb Ribs with chili crisp
Pastry chef Daniel Alvarez (Dominique Ansel New York, Daily Provisions) oversees the desserts program at this stylish eatery and also offers his baked goods in the mornings at 7:30 am daily that includes must-trys like a Black & White Donut and Pastel De Nata.
