Chez Ma Tante

OPENED237 DAYS AGO

A new restaurant inspired by Montreal’s legendary hot-dog-and-French-fry spots has just opened in Brooklyn called Chez Ma Tante. When two Scandi chefs (Claus Meyer and Fredrik Bersilius) with combined resumés that result in nothing less than amazing opened their spot, Norman, in Greenpoint a few weeks ago, we knew the Greenpoint food scene had just upped its game. Now, restaurateur, Josh Cohen (who previously owned the hit spot, Jimmy’s Diner) has enlisted the help of Aidan O’Neal and Jake Leiber, who have both served significant time at the celebrated, Café Altro Paradiso, to head up this new addition to the area.

The Spot:

A native of Vancouver, O’Neal spent five years in Montreal before moving to NYC and pays homage to a restaurant he loved there, which also inspired the name, Chez Ma Tante (‘at my aunt’s’). The new restaurant replaces Jimmy’s – the Greenpoint offshoot of Williamsburg’s popular Jimmy’s Diner – which closed at the end of last year.

The Food:

As mentioned, the name itself is inspired by the many hot-dog-and-French-fry shacks found in Montreal and, you can bet your bottom dollar there will definitely be hot dogs around at lunch. Dinner however offers something a little more refined. The menu is broken into categories for raw & cooked selfish, charcuterie, salads & vegetables and mains. There’s dishes like marinated mussels and clams, country pâté and skate wing. Dessert offers up items like rhubarb custard tart and a sorbet with Polish vodka.

The Drinks:

A focus on locally distilled liquor in on the cocktail menu which features classics like an Owney’s-rum daiquiri and a Dorothy Parker-gin negroni.

In A Nutshell:

If fans of Jimmy’s are sad for their loss in Greenpoint then the replacement of Chez Ma Tante is bound to please fans and new customers alike.
