Shoppers hunting for antiques along Atlantic Avenue know to make a pit stop at the Downtown Atlantic. The restaurant, bar, and bakery, which combines Old New York ambience with more contemporary elements, has something for everyone: live jazz on Sundays, televised sports at the long wooden bar, and a menu unfettered by geographic constraints. Some patrons enjoy all three at once—rooting for the Giants, foot-thumping to jazz, or scarfing down a just-baked dessert. Hearty portions of unpretentious comfort-food classics like roasted pork shank with mashed potatoes balance nouvelle-style plates—roasted-beet salad, shrimp rolls, wasabi Yellowfin tuna, and Italian pasta concoctions in rustic, chunky sauces. Diners of all ages, most locals from Boerum Hill and the surrounding Brooklyn neighborhoods, relax at candle-lit, white linen-covered tables, surrounded by sage-colored walls, polished mahogany paneling, antique mirrors, and framed black-and-white photographs of the Brooklyn that used to be.Brunch
