Gage & Tollner
Located in a Gilded Age Landmark in Downtown Brooklyn, which was built in 1879, one of New York’s oldest establishments is open again. After closing in 2004, this legendary restaurant was finally been able to reopen in 2021.
You are transported directly into a turn-of-the-century New York restaurant. Once inside, make way for velvet booths, mirrors and wood on the walls, brass lamps hanging from the ceiling. Everything is done with good taste.
The menu offers beautiful platters of oysters and seafood. We started with the very good “Parker House Rolls”, the crab cakes and the terrine. But the meat is the star, in this New York City steak house: T-Bone, Ribeye, NY Strip… The fried chicken with its side of kale and kimchi slaw, was also really good!
If you have room for dessert, the Baked Alaska is not to be missed.
PLAN B: Their upstairs Tiki Bar is amazing.
