French-Asian Fare At Mori Plus Live Music & Drinks at Barbes In Park Slope
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
First, start with dinner at Mori, a new addition to the neighborhood specializing in rare Asian ingredients elevated with some French influence. In this small, modern space, the casual ambiance is complemented by copper orb pendant lights and a wholly contemporary aesthetic. The standout in design, however, is in the plating—from their orange jam-based pan-roasted foie gras de canard to the pops of color in their pan-fried gyoza.
After dinner, head over to Barbès and celebrate local artists over craft cocktails from mixologist Justin Lane Briggs. With a casual dive bar aesthetic, Barbès is a hub for inspiration, showcasing live performances (be it music or readings) in its intimate (but typically busy) space. Named after an artist-friendly neighborhood in northern Paris, Barbès carries over its European influence with its richly detailed tin plate ceiling, dimly lit space, and eclectic creative lineups. Performances typically kick off at around 8 p.m. and keep in mind that the space fills up fairly quickly.
