ThirstbaraVin is the most amazing restaurant in Crown Heights - pate, cailletes (home made sausage mixed with and sage) , watercress soups, chocolate pot of creme worth stopping by alone. Never mention the wine. Always ask the owners for pairings and selections and you will not be disappointed.
However the owners mentioned the other day that foot traffic is slow and they may need to "reassess...!"
Their location is in a rather bleak part of Classon off Pacific. Looks like a garage from the outside. So cool. But maybe this hidden gem is a bit too hidden. So I want to give a shout out to all the newbies in the nabe. My parents loved it too. Open Tues through Sat for dinner...
and I am not affiliated in any way with the establishment. I just love great food - and I am a foodie. And Ive found nothing else like it in Brooklyn -- or Manhattan to be honest.
