Despite what the name might lead you to believe, Chez Ma Tante is not a French restaurant. It’s a mostly-American place, although they also serve pierogies (one of the official foods of Greenpoint). Those pierogies, in addition to the caesar salad and half-chicken, are excellent - the food overall here is just a little bit fancy, and really good. The small corner space is simple but well-designed, with a bar that’s perfect for dining solo and a few outdoor tables for when it’s actually nice outside. While the prices are a little high for a neighborhoody spot, we like the place because they pay attention to the details - the service is good, those pierogies are made by a woman/pierogi expert who lives around the corner, and most of the wine comes from the neighborhood’s best wine shop. If you’re looking for a new spot to try in Brooklyn, come here (but note they’re closed on Mondays and Tuesdays).
