New York City’s favorite farm-to-table chain has finally landed in Brooklyn. Westville Dumbo doles out all the healthified American eats you’ve come to expect from the chain, including warm lentil salad with carrots and onion, veggie chili, and burgers served on Portuguese muffins.
It makes sense that the name of this local- and regional-focused farm-to-table restaurant in Brooklyn Heights is also the name of Albany, New York’s most populous suburb. Colonie’s commitment to “support the New York food community” is made evident by menu items such as ricotta with Catskills honey, cheese from local dairies, and craft beers from the state’s best breweries.
The same team behind Vinegar Hill House brings you VHH Foods, a fast-casual café serving food worth lingering over. This riverfront eatery boasts some of the same great ethical eats as its parent restaurant, but it’s VHH exclusives such as charred carrots with honey and steak sandwiches with vinegar onions and blue cheese that shine brightest.
At Brooklyn Heights’ Beasts & Bottles, “Brooklyn green market meets classic rotisserie.” What exactly does this entail, you’re wondering? It includes roasted organic chicken from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, smoked Long Island duck, and grass-fed burgers with Vermont cheddar – all washed down with “responsibly made wines” handpicked by Brooklyn’s only Master Sommelier.
When seeking out farm-to-table fare, the pizzeria is often overlooked. The local, housemade, and international ingredients at Juliana’s, however, cannot be forgotten, as illustrated by the Dumbo eatery’s loyal fanbase who returns time and again for produce-focused thin crust pizzas and seasonal housemade soups.
