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.
Cocotte is doing a 5-course for $75 and a 3-course for $50... here's the menu, I copied it from their website. Looks pretty ambitious.
All 5 Courses - $75
1 Appetizer, 1 Entrée & Dessert - $50
TRUFFLED SUNCHOKE SOUP
with Warm Lobster Salad & Chervil Foam
FOIE GRAS "TOAD IN THE HOLE"

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.
NOODLE PUDDING is having a dinner.
