Freek’s Mill

OPENED2028 DAYS AGO

Once upon a time in Gowanus, Brooklyn, there was a beautiful canal running through the neighbourhood, rich with oysters and full of beautiful mills operating along the sides. Now, that canal is part wasteland, part hipster haven and home to some of the freshest culinary talent in Brooklyn and, in true hipster style, has converted one of its original mills into a restaurant named after an actual 18th-century mill that operated there – Freek’s Mill.

Chef Chad Shaner has cooked up a seasonal menu of small and veggie-centric plates that largely rely on single ingredients like Carrots (with yoghurt and peanut Dukka), Charred Radicchio (with walnuts and currants), Smoked Chicken Casserole (with nettles and preserved lemon) and Rabbit in a Jar (rabbit meat cooked slowly in duck fat until it becomes spreadable paste).

A menu of cheeses as well as desserts are available and the craft cocktail menu includes classics like The House Negroni (with Perry’s Tot gin, Campari, and Cocchi Vermouth di Torino). The wine list prominently features french white and red wines as well as making space for some interesting “amber” wines from the republic of Georgia that have been clay-vessel-aged (an ancient technique used for those wanting to maintain the natural qualities of wine) for taste.
