Brooklyn Grill delights visitors with an array of thirst-slaking potables and a 1940s mob-inspired menu full of classic American edibles. Warm up sluggish taste buds with a starter of beer-battered onion rings ($6.99), or introduce lonely molars to the gang from Brooklyn platter, which includes nachos, chicken tenders, mozzarella sticks, and breaded mushrooms ($12.99). The Mobster salad spotlights a menacing mix of greens, red peppers, apples, peanuts, flame-broiled ginger chicken breast, and sesame dressing ($9.29), and a variety of burgers and sandwiches includes the Tommy gun burger, boasting a battery of Angus beef, veggies, swiss cheese, and sautéed mushrooms ($9.39). Brooklyn Grill also plates three kid-size entrees ($4.29 each) and provides crayons for sketching getaway routes on paper placemats.
Brooklyn Grill’s medley of martinis, brews, and wines enables sippers to toast the end of the national prohibition of alcohol or a neighbor’s prohibition of pants. Servers sport fedoras as they ferry foodstuffs throughout the lamp-lit interior of the long and narrow building.
Though its building is a relic of the 19th century and its kitchen whips up 21st-century recipes, Brooklyn Grill evokes New York City in the 1940s. Black-and-white photos of classic New York scenes join wood-paneled walls, old-fashioned lampposts, and exposed brick to create a chic urban atmosphere. The menu enhances the New York theme by dropping mob references in its recipe names, such as the Breaded Bullets mushrooms, the Bugsy Seigel buffalo burger, and the Staten Island Sting sandwich with vegetables and a three-cheese blend. Brooklyn Grill's bar complements each meal with a domestic or imported beer, a glass of wine, or one of many house martinis.
