Old School Brooklyn, a quaint, neighborhood-y restaurant on bustling Court Street, is a welcome addition to the area, with white brick walls, wooden furniture, and an airy dining room—but the menu isn’t a knockout. The mozzarella appetizer, with basil, tomato, and olive oil, is uninspired, with little seasoning and mediocre presentation. Entrées like chicken with mushrooms, olives, and Sicilian couscous and pan-roasted Portobello mushrooms with wild arugula, salsa verde, and tomato are perfectly edible, but they're certainly not memorable. On a brighter note, Old School’s pastas are filling and flavorful, and the veal meatballs with a light marinara are decadent, hearty, and authentically delicious. Sweet drinks by Brooklyn Soda will transport you to an era of artisanal sodas and unregulated, fully sugared beverages, and the daily changing dessert menu—handwritten on a chalkboard hung on the wall—will make you want to save room until the end.
