A restaurant located in an old glass factory, Glasserie is well worth the trek to the far reaches of Brooklyn’s northernmost neighborhood, Greenpoint. Here chef/owner Sara Kramer and GM/owner Sara Conklin are putting forward an intriguing and entirely delicious mashup of Middle Eastern flavors and market fare. Malawach, a flaky bread served with garlic, coriander, mint-topped labneh, is an addictive starter before moving into larger plates like the lamb tartare with briny olives and crackling bulghur chips. Conklin chooses the wine, a constantly revolving list full of delicious off-the-beaten path bottles like a juicy plavac mali from Bura in Croatia or tinta barroca from Muxagat in Portugal.
95 Commercial St., Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York
