    My vote is Applewood, better lighting, drinks, bar area, and food. Grocery was a horrible experience when I went. Maybe the expectations were too high...

      It seems redundant now, but I can't let an opportunity slip by to praise applewood. Go there and don't be afriad of the more unusual meats like veal, venison and goat. :)

        Thought I like both, I would not hesitate to choose Applewood. The ambiance is perfect for this time of year.

          Grocery is overrated. Maybe not when it opened, but now. Go to Applewood.

            I've had great meals at both, but I am partial to Applewood. I think you will enjoy either restaurant.

                never been to grocery but applewood is one of my top favorite restaurants in nyc, let alone brooklyn.

                and for this time of year, its perfect.
