    Had dinner there with a group of 6 last week and it was great. Great food and attractive place too. Asked about this dinner and they still have a few openings. So much is closed that this might be the place to go.

          They all sound so wonderful. Isn't it terrific that we have such excellent, creative restaurants in Brooklyn?

          I always enjoyed the Saint Sylvestre special Menu for New Year's Eve in Paris, and I'm happy to see the custom has spread to Brooklyn.
