Cesar Ramirez has earned quite a few honors at his two and a half year-old fine dining counter Brooklyn Fare, including three stars from the New York Times, three stars from Michelin, nods from every major food publication, and a swath of faithful food world followers. What he hasn't earned in all that time is a liquor license. Until now.
Sorry BYOB lovers (and penny pinchers), according to this tweet and photo from Jenny & Francois Selections and The State Liquor Authority's website, The Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare is now free and open to serve all manner of booze. And it couldn't come a second sooner for Chef Ramirez, who recently said when discussing his unfortunate BYOB situation, "Do you know how hard it was seeing people bring $5 bottles of wine 'paired' with our food? Or even the expensive bottles. Barolo alongside first courses? Oh my God." Stay tuned for more when the restaurant reveals its wine list and how much the price of the now $185 dinner will rise once it's introduced.
