12355134111232008_10_hasmaps%20%283%29%20%281%29%20%281%29.jpgDoes Brooklyn have its own unique culinary identity apart from Manhattan? Are all the young, ambitious chefs and restaurateurs opening in Brooklyn these days? And are any Brooklyn restaurants worth the train/cab/boat/helicopter ride from the Upper East Side?

After a 14-year run on Smith Street, chef Saul Bolton recently packed up his acclaimed New American restaurant Saul and moved it to spacious new digs inside the Brooklyn Museum. The dinner menu includes celery root soup, a foie gras terrine, chicken with black trumpet mushrooms, striped bass with mussels, and venison with walnut bread pudding. The cocktails from head bartender Dan Carlson are getting some great buzz right now. Consider the Red Leaf, made with Banks 5 Rum, Cocchi Americano, and Campari.
