Since the minuscule Brooklyn Fare opened last summer, its single tables twelve communal seats have been booked months in advance. But in what constitutes a major expansion, the dining rooms been beefed up so it can comfortably accommodate six more guests. That means chef César Ramirez can now serve his beloved tasting menu ($135) to 40 guests a night, and hell also open up Sundays and Mondays for groups of ten to twelve. The menu has grown, too from fifteen to twenty courses, including canapés, and, this week, the scallops with corn purée and pork belly pictured and will soon offer wine pairings. The courses on offer will change nightly; read on for a sample menu.
