Rhodora in Fort Greene focuses on wine made using small-scale, natural processes - as part of the wine bar’s larger sustainable mission to produce zero waste. If you want to try natural wine from places like Germany, Austria, or a cave in Southeastern France, Rhodora has one of the best lists in Brooklyn. As for the food, the menu has a bunch of conservas, snacking vegetables, and cheese. We particularly like sitting on their sidewalk, but there’s plenty of room inside too.
