Located just a short walk from the Brooklyn Museum of Art, this cozy eatery is helmed by celebrity chef Cheryl Smith, former star of the Food Network’s Melting Pot. As the name suggests, the menu here travels the world of comfort food, with prolonged layovers in Asia and Northern Africa: Steamed mussels swim in a Thai coconut curry sauce; a Moroccan vegetable tagine is served on a bed of couscous pilaf; and salmon is glazed with sake and accompanied by jasmine rice and nori. Good bets are the tasty and tender bulgogi-marinated rib eye and juicy jumbo shrimp—lightly coated with barbecue sauce, sprinkled with zesty Creole spices, and sided with wilted greens and creamy mashed potatoes. The small dining room—with an angular, wood-plank drop ceiling, recycled wood plank walls, and exposed white brick—doesn’t have many soft surfaces, so be warned that the place can get loud in the evenings. But don’t take off without trying a piece of Cheryl’s brûlé-crusted lemon pie, topped with a generous dollop of whipped cream that suitably offsets the tartness.
