The team behind Williamsburg-based Brooklyn Winery now has a restaurant in Crown Heights called BKW. Michael Gordon, a chef with experience at Bouley, runs the kitchen at the new 65-seat bar and restaurant at 747 Franklin Ave., offering small plates like crispy Brussels sprouts with pastrami, and entrees like root beer glazed pork ribs and vegetable goulash. Some of the dishes make use of wine from the winery, such as a hanger steak with a wine sauce and Kalimotxo float.
On the beverage side, all the wine offerings from Brooklyn Winery will be available. Eventually, the restaurant will also offer an expanded beverage list with classic cocktails. Some bottles of wine from Brooklyn Winery will only be offered at BKW, and all bottles may be purchased to go. The space also features a "micro-winery," which will be used for experimental wines to be served at the bar.
