THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Brooklyn Cafe Restaurant Review

: This suburban outpost of a Sandy Springs establishment that has been up and running for a dozen years feels quite different from its parent. Small, with just 84 seats in the main area, and 30 both at the bar and on the patio, the casual space boasts a black-and-white color scheme. A large back wall serves as the screen for a projector that taps into the Food Network or may be used to display a special video for a party. Dishes may be ordered in half, or appetizer, portions. A half-portion of the plump spinach and ricotta gnocchi is more than plenty for a single entrée serving. Ditto the delicious Japanese eggplant, which sits on a bed of pesto-flavored orzo that seems to conflict with the flavors of the lively-seasoned eggplant. The fig-and-walnut salad is a splendid arrangement of Gorgonzola cheese, mixed field greens and delicious tiny figs. We also liked the crispy polenta cake perched on a Gorgonzola sauce and topped with fried onions. Save room for the white chocolate bread pudding, embellished with splendid strawberries. The wine list has some interesting choices, with most offered by the glass and the half glass, a portion size we find just perfect for tasting a lot of different wines.
