- Food: American flavors with rustic French twists
- Cost: $$$
- Wine / Cocktails: Rustic cocktails, try their perfect Brooklyn cocktail
Most people will be going to the newly opened Barrelhouse Flat for Stephen Cole’s vast array of old school artisanal cocktails and punches served to you table side. They do make the perfect Brooklyn cocktail with rye whiskey and orange bitters, and serve it in a frosty glass. However, I went there for the food – delicious bites of deviled eggs and a sweetbread snack.
Sweetbread bites with Green Goddess, Dips and Spreads: French onion, chipotle sweet potato and snappy cheese, Bacon Popcorn.Pig face poutine with roasted fig, shallot and hand cut fries, Blue cheese and mushroom beignets with peppercorn gastrique, Double deviled eggs with ham and tobacco onions
