The food at this Fort Greene restaurant falls into a very postmodern category: New American comfort food. It traffics in combinations—beets and goat cheese, mango and salmon—that were once exciting if less so now. Yet despite the menu's lack of surprises, this place does have its charms. The small dining room is an unusually dapper combination of wood wainscoting, exposed brick, and a painted tin ceiling. Despite the cluster of clichés that makes up the menu, the food is certainly satisfying. Crab cakes don't pack much sweet sea flavor, but they're encased by crisp breading and perched on zesty rémoulade. Slightly tough pork loin is redeemed by its sweet sherry reduction and warm apple and fennel salad. There will be no great revelations at Veliis, but that's no great failing.Recommended Dishes
