Valentine’s Love For Atlantic Avenue’s Colonie Restaurant

In a recent round-up of romantic Valentine’s Day dinner destinations, AM New York gives some love to Colonie at 127 Atlantic Avenue.

The newspaper offers: “A true neighborhood spot, Colonie is a great place for a romantic dinner date in Brooklyn. The five-course prix-fixe dinner includes oysters with blood orange, fennel and speck consommé mignonette and chocolate ganache with banana ice cream, peanut brittle and caramel. $95 per person.”

BHB’s own Karl Junkerfeld notes, “The opening of Colonie is a transformative event for Brooklyn Heights, which can rival any restaurant in the greater New York City area. Bravo!” (Image: Karl Junkersfeld)

    All the restaurants that offer bloated VDay menus can go to hell! Just offer the regular menu! Who can perform after stuffing yourself with all of those courses, anyway? Thoughts?

    How romantic could a restaurant be where the tables are barely an inch apart and the noise is at deafening levels?

    The menu is interesting…but the seating is like summer camp with votives.;

    well, to break with the tradition of this thread, and some of my own frequent entries, I have to give Colonie major MAJOR props. This restaurant serves delicious and innovated foods (menu changes with the seasons). The interior dinning room is not as cramped as you think and the service is excellent. Personally I don’t like going out on Valentine’s Day as the food at ANY restaurant – it just isn’t on par with their normal service (in my opinion). But give Colonie a break – as it is it looks like Governor will not recover from the Hurricane damage and I’d hate to lose Colonie because of negative blog comments.

    very, very few “quiet” restaurants in business any longer.

    New York would somehow survive the loss of Colonie.

    I’ve eaten at many fine restaurants that are quiet and don’t cramp their patrons by putting in too many tables. People, it would seem, don’t know any better or they would give places like Colonie a wide berth.

    I remember taking my 70-ish parents to Colonie once and being squeeze in the back around what seemed to be a bachelorette party or similar situation. It was pretty awful. I like their menu, which is quirky and adventurous, but they suffer from the NYC problem of trying to get every last customer squished in and then not offering enough soundproofing to keep the volume levels down. I know that makes me sound like an old geezer but so be it!

    @Tomham, Of course it would. ridiculous comment. But for those that like a good food within the reaches of Brooklyn Heights – WE would miss it.
