My friends and I ventured to Williamsburg, Brooklyn where it certainly is now bustling with interesting and innovative restaurants.

The trek to Brooklyn was well worth it!  Not only was the food very good - better than expected; it was light in the pocketbook!

For starters, we had cream of pepper soup.  After that the food just kept coming to the table!  The Chef chose the dishes for us to try and share like tapas.
 Above is our amuse bouche - pepper soup.
Above was one of the dishes I liked. It's burrata cheese with roasted hazelnuts, black truffles and white asparagus. 

Above is seared scallops on risotto with peas - one of the favorites at our table.

Lightly battered eggplant - with topping and what looks like balsamic syrup. (That's my guess). I loved this one even though it was deep fried.
Above is salty shrimp with cauliflower.
We dug into this roast pork before I could take a picture.  Definitely a must to order.
Giant prawns serves on a large piece of  brioche   bread with sauce and foie gras!
(Another dish I loved!)
This is the pork ribs with cinnamon.  The meat melts in your mouth. Juicy and tender but a bit too sweet for me.
Lobster, andouille sausage, peppers and some cheese and vegetables with couscous reminded me of paella.
Melted Munster cheese with chorizo in pot served with sliced apples and crustades.  It's like a fondue!  Also reminds me of Spanish tapas.
 Pulled pork sandwiches.  It was a little sweet for me.  I preferred the French fried sweet potato dipped in special mayonnaise which they serves it with.
I'm glad the Chef brought us a salad.  It was delicious with a light dressing.
One of the two desserts was a homemade key lime pie with real graham cracker crust as pictured above.
The sun had set so my photo doesn't do justice to our favorite dessert of all!  The BACON DONUTS served with a scoop of ice cream.  It was soooo good we had to 
order another on top of our omakase.

I certainly will go back to eat here!
