special dinner in Brooklyn, Sunday Night

norton Feb 15, 2008 01:27 PM

Hi Hounds,
After three years, my wife and I are moving back to Brooklyn this weekend. To celebrate, I'd like to take her for a special dinner on Sunday night. When we used to live here, our favorite spots were Applewood, Rosewater, and Al di la. I don't think Applewood is open on Sunday nights, and I'd rather not wait for a table at Al di La. Where else would you recommend going?

      I am a real fan of Garden Café on Vanderbilt Ave. in Prospect heights. 11 tables, small menu, wine licence only. Husband in kitchen, wife out front. Wonderful service, supurb food. A very special place that has lasted over 20 years.

      Garden Cafe
      620 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238

        Saul in Carroll Gardens is where I like to go for any special occasion. I've never been disappointed!

                Would suggest Henry's End. Really the only restaurant in Brooklyn Heights that constantly delivers on both food and service.
