As the name implies, this chic Bushwick address once housed a garage. Nowadays, you’ll find a bright and cheerful space boasting whitewashed brick walls, sleek blonde wood and sunny-yellow accents. The walls are hung with old black-and-white photographs of co-owner Catherine Allswang’s previous restaurants in Paris. Now, with Le Garage, she partners with her daughter Rachel to bring a contemporary French menu to Brooklyn.
Classic dishes like leeks vinaigrette are cooked to silky perfection, and served chilled with finely diced hard-boiled egg. However, their heartier options are just as impressive: imagine the likes of slow-cooked pork cheek dressed with savory pan juices, pink grapefruit segments, braised radicchio and peppery watercress.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
