Start With A Glass of Wine At Brookvin, End With Oysters and Beignets at Camperdown Elm
Start with a glass of wine at Brookvin to set the tone for this romantic date night. Brookvin is, as the name suggests, a reasonably priced wine bar in Park Slope, Brooklyn that isn't at all pretentious. Come here to enjoy a glass or two while you wait for a table at Camperdown Elm.
Camperdown Elm is yet another “New American” restaurant named for a historic Prospect Park elm tree. The food is pretty fancy but it’s not the kind of stuffy place where you have to dress up. In fact, you can dress pretty casually and drop in without making a reservation. But if there is a wait, you know where to go. It’s great for date night, because it’s on the smaller side and all of their dishes are shareable. They offer a 5 course deal, starting with oysters and ending with beignets, for just $30/person.
