Boutros is a place in Brooklyn Heights where you can get some food that’s a mix of Middle Eastern, Italian, and American. Expect things like labneh crostini, kale tabbouleh, and pizza with mozzarella and aleppo pepper. It’s an interesting combination, and the food is pretty solid, although we wouldn’t say this place is really destination-worthy. If you happen to live in the area, however, it’s a good spot to know about. Bring some people who want to try something new or stop by with a date when you forgot to make a reservation and need a place that’ll have a table last-minute. There are a bunch of potted plants and hanging Edison bulbs inside, and you can share a pizza and some steak.
