Rucola x Fawkner
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
Rucola is serving up authentic, farm-to-table Italian cuisine in Gowanus. From the fried quail appetizer to the crispy polenta and monkfish with manila clams and charred leeks, the flavors in this Northern Italian-inspired trattoria are complemented by its simplistic and charming layout, with glass bottle chandeliers, wooden banquet tables, bricks walls, and dark shiplap ceilings.
In line with Rucola's quaint and rustic look, keep that same energy by heading over to Fawkner. This little hole in the wall bar has no lack of seating or draft beers, all cozied up in a near museum-like atmosphere. Don't worry though, you and your love can feel free to kick back and relax (no slow-walk perusing required here).
