A couple of young talented chefs with great resumes wanted to do their own thing so they took over a narrow tiny bar space with a small open kitchen out back on Smith St, in Carroll Gardens Brooklyn and named it Battersby. A few years later they opened second larger spot a few blocks away called Dover. French inspired they are easily two of the best restaurants in all of Brooklyn.
Two restaurants that are wine lovers paradise, both affiliated with wine shop. Racine's is linked to Chambers St Wines down the block, spot on French inspired menu and an amazing selection of wines by the glass or bottle. Wine Disciples is a store right next to a restaurant, here the cooking is American / Italian, ingredient driven and the wine list by glass and bottle is wonderful.
