The owner of Sunday brunch favorite Le Barricou has opened another outpost for French cuisine in north Brooklyn. A rustic chandelier and old Parisian newspapers and posters decorate the restaurant's dark interior, and the place is lit by candles. There’s a leafy backyard with pebbles and pétanque that you can play while you’re waiting for your entrée. Go for the recognizably French plates: escargot—served out of their shells—and the moules frites. Both dishes swim in a hot, buttery broth and are deepened by a judicious portion of tomatoes. The chef sources much of the produce from the nearby Bushwick farmers' market and Bushwick Food Cooperative. On the cheese plate, culled from Cobble Hill’s Stinky Bklyn, there’s a drizzle of balsamic reduction and berries or apples, depending on the month. Seasonal vegetables are heaped over a pesto made with basil from the bistro’s garden. As an entrée, the traditional braised beef bourguignon sits in a warm pool of red wine and yields under the gentlest introduction of your knife. If you’re only moderately hungry, a side of flavorful macaroni and cheese could stand as a meal.
