Black Mountain Winehouse Restaurant Review

: There aren’t many townhouses with wood siding in Brooklyn, so after a five-minute walk down residential brick-lined Union Street (from Smith Street's restaurant row), you’ll know the Black Mountain Winehouse when you see it. The colorful stained-glass windows, wainscoting, and wood-hewn furniture are more cottage-cozy than cosmo-chic, but judging from the crowds, Brooklynites like their urban escape --- right down to the fireplace in the back. Under the din of conversation and pop music, a tiny open kitchen lets you watch as the chef shucks fresh oysters or constructs the house panino made of hot peppers, Polish bacon, mortadella, cheese and a sweet quince sauce. Much like the space, the menu is small and keeps mostly to finger food like crostini, tarts and charcuterie, but it’s full of diverse flavors. Equally bold is the wine menu, which includes a decent selection of worldly wines. On hot days, a mildly sweet German Riesling hits the spot. Who knows, you might just find cottage life to your liking.
