I just had dinner at Piquant on Flatbush, after meaning to get there since they re-opened over a year ago, and I have to say, it was really good! I had a mango mojito, which tastes a LOT better than it sounds, and it was the best mixed drink I've had in the neighborhood - including at The Vanderbilt. The food was good, the presentation beautiful, the prices reasonable, and the place was worrisomely empty. I've got no connection to Piquant other than just having dined there for the first time, but I would like to see good neighborhood restaurants stay in business. So go try it out! They could not have been nicer.....Proud to be a naturalized citizen of the greatest city on earth.
Been meaning to go... I will go soon and report back.
Excellent place--nice small plates and also interesting array of entrees. Worth a visit if you haven't been there. Hope they stick around...
Despite living only two blocks away I only recently discovered this place. Its deceptively large. I had alfresco brunch there and was surprised to find such a large and pleasant garden. Portions were fairly small but that's fine with me. I'd rather have something samll and tasty- and it was!
I'm looking forward to going there in the Summer.
When I was there the portions were BIG, not small.....the roasted vegetable salad was enough for 2 people easily - a huge plate of delicious roasted veggies with nice goat cheese on toasted bread.....my chicken skewers appetizer was enough for a main course, and all beautifully presented. I don't like The Vanderbilt because when I spend $100 on dinner with my husband (including a drink) I don't like to come out of the place still hungry, which I did at The Vanderbilt. But at Piquant, not at all. I was super-hungry and felt very well fed with 2 apps and a drink for dinner.
Hi all. Not affiliated with the restaurant in any way, haven't even been there yet.
Just wanted to note something I really appreciate that might cause me (living in a different neighborhood as I do) to come try out this restaurant:
I just got an email from Best Buy (of all things) mentioning that Piquant and a few other area restaurants have joined a current Best Buy rewardzone loyalty program that gives you Best Buy points every time you spend at least $25 at the restaurant.

Spend $25, get 500 points --
that's $10 in reward certificates
With Reward Zone Dining's new member bonus, you can earn at least 500 Reward Zone® program bonus points the first time you dine out. That's $10 in reward certificates¹. Plus, when you sign up you can earn 3 points for every $1 spent at participating Reward Zone Dining restaurants—including tax and gratuity.
It requires you to register the credit card you'd use on their site and the rest is done automatically from there.
Piquant management (and management of other local businesses), if you're listening to this...
THANK YOU for looking into promotions like this as well as Groupon.com , livingsocial.com etc. They are definitely noticed and passed around, are much appreciated and definitely help drive people to try out new places.i extend my battery life by turning down the brightness
