Lindsay Marie F.9/26/11I have yet to eat anything here that was NOT delicious... but my favs so far are the broccoli rabe and the polenta.
The Saint Austere
613 Grand Street
Brooklyn, NY 11211
This Euro themed bar offers an extensive list of wine which varies from different bottles and labels reaching Greece, Italy and Spain. The charismatic design of this Williamsburg bar caters to the other half of the population that enjoys downing vino to sip, savor and settle. Although Saint Austere welcomes anyone to their bar, it is far more an experience and atmospheric delight for ones who fully acknowledge wine tasting and beer. This spot is a rare pairing of deliciousness, affordability and cozy ambiance that will leave you wanting more.
Eats & Drinks
An “honest, unpretentious, and laid-back drinking and dining experience” that isn’t a hot dog on the street or a personal pizza from a bar that serves beer. Saint Austere offers melt-in-your-mouth servings of pork belly accompanied by perfectly-browned Brussels sprouts that will surely stick in your mind.
Old-world wines and beers are the main attraction at this brick walled bar. Decorated with crystal chandeliers and patterned wall paper, Saint Austere is a comfortable vibe with a menu that highlights small-production wines and artisanal beers. The narrow, industrial space is outfitted with a slim metallic bar towards the front with communal wooden tables in the back.
Bret J.2/22/12TRY THE POLENTA!!!!!!!!
Adam K.6/28/12Way better service and food than Le Barricou. Top notch.
nora w.3/2/12Polenta and broccoli rabe are insane. The Cuban sandwich was a bit greasy though.
