This is the latest entry in our series on the venues featured in the Brokelyn Beer Book. Much more than a bar, Fort Greene’s No. 7 was named a top new restaurant in America by Bon Appetit magazine.
7 Greene Ave. at Fulton St., Fort Greene, 718-522-6370
What is it: A sophisticated yet unpretentious bar and restaurant.
Why we love it: No.7 is literally the hidden Fort Greene gem. Modestly located behind the subway entrance on Greene Avenue, this joint is the sensorially stimulating brainchild of French Culinary Institute graduates Tyler Kord and Gabriel Llanos. Marble topped bar, vaulted ceiling and white tiled floor makes you feel far more refined than you actually are, but what’s wrong with that.
Who to bring: A sweetheart, current or future. A person who likes a quiet and relaxed setting, good beer and inspired food.
What to order: We’ve never tried cinnamon raisin shrimp toast, but we’re curious.
No. 7 fun fact: Bon Appetit magazine named this place a top new restaurant in America.
