The 2011 Michelin Guide to New York City included a few surprises-perhaps none greater than the first two-star designation for a restaurant outside of Manhattan. Jean-Luc Naret, the director of the Michelin Guide, named his meal at Brooklyn Fare one of his top ten meals of the year.
Former Executive Chef of Bouley and Bar Blanc, Cesar Ramirez both cooks and hosts multi-course meals in the Brooklyn grocery store kitchen five nights a week. Reservations at the 18 seat venue are likely to become even harder to snag after the prestigious designation.
Adding to the humble setting and humble chef at Brooklyn Fare is the absence of a wine list. Despite the recognition, Brooklyn Fare remains BYOB.
