Restaurant Review: Salty Pidgin4.0 Cuisine 14 October 2018
Occupying a beautiful spot on a north-facing slope in Brooklyn, Salty Pidgin straddles the line between neighbourhood drinking hole (albeit a rather stylish one) and chic eatery. Sommelier John-Paul Henderson has created a selection focusing on organic, biodynamic and single vineyard wines, including some unusual and seldom-seen wines. The menu is inventive and clever, the food prepared with care and a light touch. Chef Amy Gillies steps beyond the bistro repertoire with aplomb, crafting dishes the likes of braised rabbit with carrot cavatelli in broth (a fun spin on the rabbit/carrot partnership), or offering candied celery as an intriguing and refreshing counterpoint to bittersweet chocolate parfait. It fits the bill whatever you’re after, from a quick after-work drink to a weekend lunch.
Restaurant review: Salty Pidgin, Brooklyn, Wellington5.0 Janan Jay for Stuff 31 May 2017
The service… Top notch - our coats were taken and water poured as soon as we sat down. Our waitress knew the menu inside out and was excellent at guiding us through the choices - as deceptively simple as the mains look, we had a very tough time choosing.
The vibe… Friendly upmarket neighbourhood bistro. Think slick without being sterile; welcoming warming wooden hues with accents of black furnishings and a touch of white - matched with the personable staff - make this an effortlessly stylish and accessible haunt.
If you go… Whatever you do, make a booking, The place was still buzzing late on a Sunday night, and having a full-house mid-week is becoming increasingly common as its (well deserved) reputation goes from strength to strength. Also, set aside some time to just enjoy it - these are dishes to be savoured.
