The unpretentious and quaint Pickle Shack is the perfect place for either a first date or an evening out with friends. With wire chairs that are more comfortable than they look and candlelit everything, the restaurant creates an intimate, comfortable vibe for either a meal or just a beer. A collaboration between Brooklyn Brine (the artisanal picklers and chefs) and Dogfish Head Brewery (the highly regarded Delaware craft brewery), Pickle Shack offers a nice blend of booze and food. The unapologetically vegetarian (there's absolutely no meat on the menu) kitchen serves up mostly sandwiches and finger food everything from a hearty mushroom burger to a lighter sandwich with aged cheddar and a Branston pickle. And the aged cucumbers really are fantastic, especially the fried hop pickles with preserved lemon aïoli: juicy, hot pickles, coated in an earthy batter of cornmeal and IPA that is just right with the aïoli. The beer list rivals any beer hall in Brooklyn, with a large selection of the hard-to-find Dogfish Head seasonal brews and surprises like Dampfbier Bavarian ale. For dessert, the quince hand pie with bourbon-vanilla ice cream is everything a pie should be savory, fruity, and not too sweet.
