Black Walnut

OPENED1097 DAYS AGO

Brooklyn has got a new Hilton hotel but, more interesting is the restaurant that has opened within it – Black Walnut. Brooklyn’s hotel scene is showing no signs of slowing down, in Williamsburg alone there are at least three in construction currently and the recent opening of William Vale with it’s awesome restaurants Leuca & Westlight are fine examples of this and Black Walnut is no exception. Chef, Rob Newton is heading up the spot and has already established himself as one of New York’s finest southern chefs via his neighborhood spots Seersucker and Wilma Jean.

Situated inside the new Hilton Hotel in Downtown Brooklyn, Black Walnut is open for breakfast and dinner and is a slightly higher end affair than Newton’s other spots. This is Newton’s fourth spot in Brooklyn and he’s serving up a versatile interpretation of Southern cooking with his menu that reflects both his Arkansas roots and years of global travel. Options like grapefuit with celery, Thai basil, and horseradish and grilled shishitos with crushed sunchokes, fennel, and artichoke start off the menu. There’s a burger on the menu as well as organic chicken served with chili oil, crispy shallots and coconut milk. For the vegetarians there’s braised tofu skins served with black trumpets, turnip, cauliflower and red cabbage.  Dessert brings a vanilla cheesecake with sweet potato caramel as well a chocolate pretzel torte.

The new hotel, situated on the corner of Smith and Schermerhorn Streets on a tree-lined enclave of chic little shops and a lively night scene. Head here for dinner and head out for post dinner partying.
