On the receiving end of fanfare press from the New York Post and Brooklyn Exposed, the chefs of Linger Café & Lounge artistically plate seasonal and multinational tapas featured on an endlessly rotating menu. Inspired by the leisurely European spirit of savoring the taste of food and the texture of dinner plates on the tongue, the casual eatery encourages guests to take their time as they flood palates with bold flavors and creative ingredient pairings.
The menu’s staple tapas come in the form of croquetas, crostini, and house-made aioli buddied up with crusty bread. Past dishes have included a raw beet, quinoa, and radish salad drenched in watercress and tahini dressing, and a cream of potato soup served with scallions and freshly grated cheese. A glass of house red or white wine rounds out the evening of eats, though Linger Café does pour out locally roasted Stumptown coffee and house-made chai tea beverages for an additional fee.
Slender rows of flute-like fixtures spill soft light across the hardwood-floor lounge, which is draped in baroque-inspired décor. Surrounded by exposed-brick walls, guests sidle up to aristocratic-style furnishings, each wrapped in vibrant velvet fabrics that hark back to King Louis XIII’s velour tracksuit phase. The café’s homey atmosphere is further bolstered by regular music and art events showcasing local Brooklyn artists.
