Ever since critically acclaimed gourmet counter Brooklyn Fare attained its liquor license earlier this month, fans and followers have wondered how much the price of dinner would rise once they had a wine list to offer. Now Gothamist reports that starting January 1, a meal at Brooklyn Fare will go for $225 a head (plus tax and gratuity), up from $185. That price does not include wine, and the restaurant has yet to release its wine list (debuting sometime in January).
Is it still worth it? Bloomberg's Ryan Sutton sure thinks so noting that "a recent 30-course meal at Brooklyn Fare included caviar, white truffles and foie gras, all of which come at a supplement at most other fine dining venues." For the time being the restaurant is still BYOB.
