The Chef’s Table at Brooklyn fare, the only three Michelin-starred restaurant in Brooklyn, is raising its price to $225 per person in the new year, up from $185, as first reported by Gothamist. Recall that chef Cesar Ramirez was charging $165 earlier this year, and $135 in January.
Under the new pricing scheme, dinner for two will cost $579 after tax and 20% gratuity, which the restaurant usually applies. Brooklyn Fare has also acquired a liquor license; the restaurant is not yet ready to release the price of wine pairings. Diners will still be able to bring their own beverages for a corkage fee.
Is this still a STRONG BUY? It sure is — a recent 30-course meal at Brooklyn Fare included caviar, white truffles and foie gras, all of which come at a supplement at most other fine dining venues. And as always, a higher price should create a little slack in demand at the 18-seat restaurant, which typically only has one seating per night (sometimes they’ll do a late extra seating on Fridays and Saturdays for folks on the wait list).
Brooklyn Fare now joins Per Se and Masa as the only three New York restaurants whose STARTING DINNER PRICE is over $200; Romera dropped its starting price from $245 to $125 this fall, and Tom Colicchio’s $210 Tuesday Dinner restaurant is not currently open.
