Brooklyn, NY 11238
Village Voice's Description
Spawned by the owners of Saul and Num Pang Sandwich Shop, the Vanderbilt is a restaurant for those who love rich food. In pursuit of that ideal, homemade charcuterie commands center stage. Featured are a scrumptious boudin blanc that's a paragon of lightness, and a boudin noir amazing in its dark loamy flavor. The list comprises a half-dozen sausages in all, and there's also pork belly, duck rillets, duck pate, and chicken-liver mousse. The bar-snack menu is also admirable, including Serrano ham croquettes, homemade Malaysian jerky, and deviled eggs with Brit-style curry sauce, in addition to a slew of vegetable preparations (try the fall salad with faro), small main courses (the glazed ribs are great), and fish dishes.
Tips from foursquare
Staff Pick! Katie (Registrar's Office): Very smart décor and friendly staff. Delicious cocktails and great selection of beer. Well priced food for a special night out in Prospect Heights.
We dig its heady cocktails & custom bitters. The 5-course menu runs a reasonable $60 & includes pairings like tender pork belly & Autobahn IPA, pork & aged cheddar sausage over grits with Grand Cue.
The Vanderbilt's offer of refined food & drink at a price that won’t liquidate your savings is a welcome addition. Michelin-starred chef Saul Bolton & Ben Daitz collaborated on an A plus menu.
The cocktail menu features drinks like the Glyda Rose: a blend of gin, Campari, blood orange & champagne that’s named after his great aunt, or the Tupelo Julep, served slush-style with shaved ice.
Try the Duck Pate with Confit Gizzard- they brought it to Choice Eats last year and everyone loved it!
