Situated among the traditional Polish bakeries and butchers at the tip of Greenpoint, Le Fanfare is the new restaurant on the block with an old soul, a place you want to visit regularly and be slightly surprised by each time - whether by new music each weekend or a for the locally sourced happy hour oysters. This restaurant cordially invites you to the quiet end of Manhattan Avenue, to indulge in
updated Italian plates and chic digs that you will want to take in often (and maybe keep a bit of an amazing secret).
Fall 2015 marks the one-year anniversary of offering a classy, simple option for those of us who love to feel a little special on any given weekday, and they know how to serve just the right glass of wine and ravioli in a beautiful setting to do so. As they stake their heels in the block patrons have much to look forward to – including a Sunday communal dinner, kid-friendly offerings, and pretty
kick ass food and drink happy hour. All of the pastas are handmade in-house and Le Fanfare’s chef Adam Ross goes to painstaking lengths (though you’d never know it because great food is an expectation here) to feature an entire menu of local, organic and sustainable ingredients. A glittering gold backdrop in the corner sets the scene for a roster of rotating live musicians and music on the weekends. The finely attuned crowd is calm, cool and casual; local Greenpointers with young families, mixed with Manhattanite in this carefully curated atmosphere. They know Brooklyn, and its forever classy soul.
