Village Voice's Description

James is a very polite addition to the handsome brownstoned Prospect Heights neighborhood, a bistro so good that it makes Manhattan jealous. Start with the crunchy sweetbreads in a tart rhubarb glaze or the asparagus salad that mixes white and green specimens, then progress to the big lush hamburger dripping juices or the nut-coated trout served with fennel slaw. Even the desserts excel, and the decent but short wine list is decently priced. We hesitate to mention the picayune drawbacks of this fabulous spot, but the noise level can deafening, no reservations are taken, and the sun hits you right in the eyes early in the evening.

Tips from foursquare

  • Time Out New York on 10/05/11

    Here on a Monday? Get the lamb burger—a half-pound puck, dusted in cumin, seared in a cast-iron pan, anointed with warm goat cheese & cipollini onions. It’s one of our #100best dishes & drinks of 2011

  • BrooklynMuseum on 12/11/09

    Staff Pick! Caroline (Design): The kind of place where someone might propose marriage or where you may meet the in-laws. Nice if you have time, $$, a hot date..

  • BrooklynMuseum on 05/23/11

    Staff Pick! Danny (Curatorial): Great for a date before First Saturdays, but best on Monday night's Burger Night ($20 dollar taste for $7 dollars...take that Wendy's value meal).

  • Lindsey F. on 05/29/09

    Their burger and pint happy hour special is an amazing deal.

  • Phoenix 💥💥💥 on 02/13/14
