Andrew Tarlow's Italian outpost in Fort Greene is market driven, sustainability sourced and wood-oven fired. The restaurant features a super-mod outdoor patio, and indoors you’ll find exposed brick and wood floors to create country charm. Chef Dave Gould's menu changes nightly so there's endless variety, but expect crisp, fresh vegetables in summer and winter-cellar produce in cooler months. To top it off, there’s a 1,000-square-foot rooftop farm where fresh basil, shaved fennel, tomatoes, carrots, or something yummy was pulled from the dirt earlier in the day. Sounds great to us!
