There were many notable restaurant openings in Brooklyn Heights in 2013 while others stepped up their game while some faltered…badly.
Last week, Gothamist’s Jen Carlson totally plotzed about Jack the Horse Tavern in the blog’s 2013 round up The 25 Best Things We Ate and Drank in 2013:
Gothamist: Ricotta & Butternut Squash Ravioli at Jack The Horse: I struggled with even mentioning Jack The Horse because it is hands down my favorite place in all of New York City. Everything in this adorable, cozy haven is absolutely terrific—from brunch, to the reasonably-priced large-portioned appetizers, to a full-on multi-course dinner. And I could write an ode to their Aviation cocktail, a sonnet on their Old Fashioned… their bartenders are amongst the best in the five boroughs. But when I first tasted this decadent ravioli dish I was speechless, and maybe a little teary eyed. The perfect pieces of pasta are complimented by a mouthwatering brown butter, along with capers, sage and grana padona cheese—while the portion is not huge, it is worth the $11 (and you can up the size for around $10 to make it a main dish). J.C.
So, within the confines of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, what was the best thing you had to eat and drink in 2013?
