At this tiny, subterranean restaurant in Fort Greene, you’ll eat something seasonal, drink something natural, and wonder how a space so underground can be so full of light. The tables are mostly occupied by dates, or groups of two who don’t date but are here to talk about who they date. But we also love to come here alone, snag one of the coveted bar seats reserved for walk-ins, and order a solo steak tartare. With dishes like crab toast, and stinging nettle and ricotta dumplings, the menu feels like once upon a time it was French, and then things sort of spiraled, but not in a bad way. Now, you may overhear the chef whispering the next day's menu to your server—it's a subterranean secret, and luckily, you're in on it.
