The Washington avenue restaurant, takes “dining in Crown Heights to another level,” with such dishes as their heritage pork chops, says a Chow.com editor for NY1.
He praises co-owners Anna Klinger, Emiliano Coppa and Jacob Somers for overhauling “the old greasy spoon diner” , turning it into a cozy spot that serves an “innovative” Northern Italian menu, says Pervaiz Shallwani, an editor at the food web site Chow.com.
Shallwani says their standout item is the Grilled Heritage Pork Chop, a marbled chop marinated with herbs, olive oil, garlic and a splash of vinegar that’s grilled and finished in the oven with a sauce of pork scraps. The chops are placed atop polenta and slow-cooked greens, and topped with shaved horseradish.
“Each bite is a fork full of comfort,” writes Shallwani.
