NY Mag reviews the General Greene
The old spot of June restaurant is now the General Greene. This week's New York Magazine gives accolades to the new spot, mentioning its "notion of seasonality and market sensitivity."
The General Greene
Address: 229 Dekalb Ave., at Clermont Ave., Fort Greene; 718-222-1510
Hours: Dinner, Tuesday through Sunday, 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.; weekend brunch, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Prices: Small plates, $3 to $12.
Ideal Meal: Radishes with sea salt and anchovies, lamb-and-watermelon salad, grilled steak, bbq baked black beans, cookies.
Note: The wine and beer list is small, with a few local nods, and Nathan, the barkeep, takes his drinks very seriously.
Scratchpad: The epitome of NBC (New Brooklyn Cuisine), the General Greene fills the neighborhood-restaurant niche, with expectations-exceeding food and casual but crackerjack service. Four stars.
