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.

    Thomas Beisl across the street is quite serviceable Austrian food.

      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.

        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.

          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.
