Tu Bishvat Tasting, February 7, 2009, 7:00pm


Hey Everyone!

The Brooklyn Food Group is back baby! New digs, better kitchen, live band, same chefs. 'Nuff said. On February 7, in honor of the Jewish Holiday of Tu Bishvat, we'll be serving a five course meal based on the seven species of ancient Israel (wheat, barley, figs, grapes, olives, honey, pomegranate). We'll be eating in the ballroom at Congregation Beth Elohim at 274 Garfield Place in Park Slope. The cost of the meal will be only 35 dollars!

Once again, you can reserve seats through our website and we do ask for payment in advance. As always, we will try to accommodate dietary restrictions to the best of our ability. Just drop us an email when you reserve your seats.

We look forward to cooking for you soon!
The BFG team

BFG in Edible Brooklyn

Check us out in the Winter 2007 issue of Edible Brooklyn. Editor Gabrielle Langholtz came to our November dinner, and this is what she had to say:
The chef clearly enjoys cooking in the iambic pentameter, and, unlike the setting, his grub—basil pancakes with pumpkin and chili, cardamom noodles with lamb ragout—is up to real restaurant standards. ... As the BYO wine flows freely, everyone at BFG feels like my latest BFF.

BFG Brooklyn's "most fun" in 2008

Tiny Barry of the Brooklyn Paper said our June dinner was her "most fun" food experience in 2007. We hope to be your most fun in 2008!

Happy fall!

Hello friends:

Our hiatus has lasted a little longer than we planned, but we are gearing up for a fall dinner early next month. We'll be sending out an email in the next few days with more details. If you aren't on our mailing list yet, you can email us to join or check back here for information.

August Holiday

Our July 13th event was a great success and we thank all of your for coming. We are taking a break for August--you'll have to stuff yourself with tomatoes elsewhere--but we'll be back in September with butternut squash! Hopefully we'll see you then.
