    The menu features things like Swiss chard angolotti, duck with pickled cherries, a chicken for two served "Kiev style," and pork belly with squid and pan con tomate.

    Head to The Elm for Chicken “Kiev Style.” Two crispy chicken rolls, roasted and served with garlicky lemon-herb butter at their core. Tempura chicken wings and thigh croquettes complete the plate. Read more

    Beautifully composed and ready for its Instagram hero shot, the dry-aged burger sports a funky blend of dry-aged short rib, brisket, & chuck that's balanced nicely by confit tomato and spicy pickles. Read more

    "Superbly tender duck breast is ... crisp on top and glazed with honey-duck jus, but the turnips next door are a comedown, and the portion of duck is so small it’s stressful." Read more

    Are you kidding me with the Bouillabaisse?! By far one of the most incredible fish dishes I've ever had. Perfectly cooked halibut resting in seaweed butter and orange tomato sauce. Ommmmggg.

    Ambiance is stuffy and portions are (as the new yorker said!) stressfully small, but tastes blend together beautifully. Try the skate, and agnolotti. You will pay more than you expect (or want) to.

    The fois gras dish, the Kampuchea, and the "fish and chips" were amazing. So tasty. The service was young and enthusiastic but not over the top. A great meal.

    Everything we ate for brunch was excellent - Lobster Benedict, sausage, potatoes and carrot ginger juice. We'll be back for dinner...

    Lamb dish was amazing and reminded me of something you'd eat at Perla. Foie gras was perfect w the brioche!

    Not for #vegetarians. Your options include bushito peppers, sun choke salad minus speck & order of cauliflower for 2 (@ $46). Cool ambiance, good wine. #restaurant #brooklyn

    The bourbon mulled wine is yummy! Lobster cassoulet is hardy! The skate and duck is great !

    This trendy restaurant is perfect for a special occasion. Pricy but worth every penny.

    Lobster bouillabaisse was one of my top 10 dishes of 2013. Skate was a close second.

    Great food but service (& decor) makes the experience very confusing. Not quite high end, not quite casual. Service needs to take a page from bouchon bakery. Eager 'nuf to please but not well trained.

    Small portions of amazing food. We felt like we were eating tiny pieces of art. Your wallet will be empty before your stomach is full.

    Nice presentations, but the small plates and clueless service make it a miss.

    Food was very flavorful but a bit too salty. The portions are small so order at least 3 meals for 2 people.

    We ordered the Fish and Chips, Vongole, and Lobster Cassoulet. Presentation was nice but everything was way too salty. This place is over-salted, over-priced, and honestly, overrated.

    Terrible brunch all around. Don't waste your time here for an overpriced brunch when the neighborhood has so much to offer. $6.5 cappuccino was not good, breakfast sandwich was average at best.
