Village Voice's Description

On first glance, Battersby looks like every other twee Smith Street eatery. But something's different. A peek at the menu reveals none of the holier-than-thou artifice that often mars the Brooklyn dining experience. Chef-owners Walker Stern and Joseph Ogrodnek put out a constantly evolving menu that's elegant and refined (without pretension), not to mention spunky and inventive. Begin with the kale salad, featuring both raw and pan-fried crispy leaves under a spell of Thai basil and fish sauce. Then dig into the pommes puree with braised oxtail or the veal sweetbreads à la meunière. The desserts tread safer waters, but they're about the only predictable thing that comes out of this restaurant’s kitchen.

    This is a good fucking restaurant.

  • AskMen on 10/24/11

    The menu is seasonally-driven, uses produce from a one-acre Long Island farm where they harvest over 100 varieties of organic produce. Plus you can eat here alone, at the full-service mahogany bar.

    Tasting menu is delicious. And a great value. But it takes 3 hours to get through all 7 courses.

  • Kirsten A. on 12/06/11

    DO NOT miss Krisp Kale salad if it is on the menu. The best salad I've ever had. Ever.

  • Chet M. on 07/24/13

    5 course tasting menu was exquisite. Excellent service, and the wine pairings are generous.
