Hours: Reservation Only

Make reservations early for this Brooklyn atelier—there are only 12 seats available in the airy loft-like space above the team’s other more causal venture, Roberta’s. Turn up the tunes (yes, guests are in charge of selecting and spinning from the album library) and get cozy in your leather-lined captain chair that faces the white pristine kitchen. From your seat, watch Chef Carlo Mirarchi and his team prepare a marathon, 20-course dining experience. But save room for dessert, 2013 Rising Star Pastry Chef Katy Peetz has no preconceived notions of what to serve to sate a sweet tooth. Forget nostalgic reinterpretations of childhood favorites and deconstructed French classics. She offers flavor combinations that make even the most jaded dessert connoisseurs do a double take—think parsley, lemon, black garlic, and fennel.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Parsley Cake, Fennel-Black Garlic Gelato, and Meyer Lemon Granita
