Brucie (Cobble Hill, Brooklyn)

I admit it...I have started to grow tired of the restaurants in my neighborhood.  It's not that they're bad (actually most of the places near me are amazing), it's just I have gone too many times and they have lost the element of surprise and mystery they once had.  On one particular night I was especially feeling very ho hum about my options, and then can Brucie! I had been passing by Brucie for months and I finally decided to go in. The interior is packed to the brim with charming details like gorgeous wallpapers, a rustic wood bar, mason jar chandeliers, and Italian fare ready to be purchased for your own cooking adventures.   

I went to town on the delectable Zucchini Flowers alla Parmigiana and fresh buttery Sea Scallop Tartare with tangy picked rhubarb and crisp beet chips. The winner of the evening was the Pork Belly Milanese with cherry tomato and cucumber salad, a refreshing and brilliantly seasoned combination. I finished the meal with a Cooolhaus Ice Cream Sandwhich (brown butter candied bacon ice cream between a maple pecan cookie) and if that isn't enough to get anyone excited, I don't know what is!!
