Chef Romy Dorotan and his wife Amy Besa closed their venerable Filipino Pan-Asian restaurant Cendrillon in March 2009, lured by the lower rents and community vibe of Ditmas Park, where they’ve set up shop on a burgeoning restaurant row. Although traces of Cendrillon remain, like the signature Philippine adobo and fresh lumpia, they’re joined by a coterie of new Korean-inspired dishes, a decorative bamboo motif, and that thing that’s far easier to come by in Brooklyn than in cramped Manhattan: a serene garden.
