dinner after a performance at BAM

Or family (2 sons in their 20ies) is looking for a nice place to have dinner after the theater at Bam. We love good food and would be interested in just about anything in the medium+ price range. Ethnic would be good. Can be near Clinton Hill, Brooklyn as well. Thanks for your help.

  1. Thomas Beisl across the street is quite serviceable Austrian food.

    1. I have never had a good dinner at Thomas Beisl. Last night, however, my SO and I had a wonderful meal at Stonehome Wine Bar -- very fresh, interesting dishes at reasonable prices and a nice atmosphere. I had braised pork cheeks with spaetzle and SO had well-prepared steak. Salads were great, and the lemon custard with huckleberries for dessert was memorable. You probably want a reservation if you're going on a BAM theater night. Otherwise, I'd say another good choice would be Taro Sushi, Dean at Flatbush.

      1. We've eaten at Thomas Beisl at least 15 times and have never once had a bad meal. I really don't "get" the downhill alerts, bad reviews, etc. on this place. I would describe it as more than serviceable.

        1. I second Stonehome - really good food and value and very close. Smoke Joint is pretty close, doing BBQ, though probably a little too informal for you. Depending on how far into F Greene you want to go, there are a few places on DeKalb (Ici, very current New American, Chez Oscar, solid French bistro, Bonita, busy Latin place). For something a little fancier, try Locanda Vini e Olii on Gates Ave and Cambridge Pl in C Hill. A nice walk up Lafayette in good weather.
