Unique Dining Experience in Brooklyn for Saturday
Any ideas? Looking for something more than just a dinner. Any neighborhood and good for a group please...
Are we in a time warp? The date of the link is 2006. The River Café is closed due to Sandy damage. Bouillabaisse is gone for many years now. My usual suggestion for something out of the ordinary is Locanda vini e olli ( www.locandavinieolii.com ) Tuscan food in a converted old fashioned apothecary.
I'm really not sure what you're asking for but I'll assume that you're not necessarily going for the best food but an "experience" type place that has food that's good enough. If so, then you might want to try one of the big Russian places in Brighton Beach (some even have a show), or Tommaso's (where the owner sometimes sings opera), or the bowling alley/restaurant in Wmsburg one of the large Chinese places in Sunset Park's Chinatown. There are also cocktail bar places like Clover Club or Char No.4 (bourbons) that are upbeat places for groups to eat (a little later than the usual Bklyn dinner hours).
Thanks for all the feedback. Made reservations at Locanda last night. Now hopefully we won't get buried by snow.
