The Brooklyn Restaurant Review

: The Brooklyn is often bustling with guests enjoying expense account meals or post-office happy hours, so it can take some time to be seated without a reservation. Consider sidling up to the bar or counter where you’ll have a view of oysters being shucked (reportedly 400 dozen each week) and drinks being poured. Try the tasting samplers that pair various oysters with wines or draft beers. Menu favorites include venison with roasted wild boar bacon and potato gnocchi, Prime sirloin with Dungeness crab, and a slow-braised leg of lamb. Desserts are forgettable, but if you must have something sweet, the warm chocolate cake is a decent option. Upholstered booths and dark wood furnishings give this spot a classy men’s club vibe. Located in a nineteenth-century building, The Brooklyn also has a loyal clientele of well-heeled concert-goers who attend performances at nearby Benaroya Hall.
