This venue is closed.

Since 1996, this bistro with a soaring tin ceiling has pulled in diners from surrounding brownstone Brooklyn, particularly for informally romantic dates. Its name is somewhat misleading–the bar and restaurant are separate entities; the menu forgoes pub fare in favor of internationally influenced cuisine that’s big on seafood. A crab-cake is toothsome and crunchy on the outside, enhanced by cilantro aioli and chunky guacamole. Puffy cumin-dusted sea scallops dressed in pomegranate citrus sauce are tangy, not too sweet, and lovely on the plate, while a thick-cut salmon filet retains its juicy flavor. Not to be outdone by the pm crowd, 12th Street also has a bustling weekend brunch.


Neighborhood parking can be a nightmare, so the restaurant has made arrangements with a lot around the block to provide free parking to its guests.

Sat.—Sun., 11 a.m.—3 p.m.
