On Friday evening, Battersby chef/restaurateurs Joseph Ogrodnek and Walker Stern opened their new Carroll Gardens restaurant, Dover. The chefs are working with a bigger kitchen this time, and the dining room is about twice the size of the one at their Smith Street critical darling. The food is similar to what's served at Battersby, but Ogrodnek and Stern are offering an entirely new set of dishes here. The menu from this weekend included hamachi crudo, Maine sea urchin with soba, cod with smoked bacon and beets, pork belly with roasted fruit, beef ribeye, and duck with black kale. In addition to the a la carte menu, a five-course tasting is also available for $75.
An Eater reader that dined there on Friday offers this takeaway: "This is Battersby in a nicer location. Everything was absolutely phenomenal (we did the five-course tasting menu) and every dish could have been served to us at Battersby without missing a beat."
