Old School Brooklyn is far from old school- foodwise. The décor is vintage and kitchey, with big comphy chairs, but the food is modern & eclectic. Start with bread with garlicky white bean dip- nice. The green gazpacho made with cukes, pineapple and mint was a refreshing warm weather treat. Cavatelli with spicy sausage and broccoli rabe was sitting on a lovely brood topped with parmigiano reggiano and ohhhhhhh so delicious. Pasta is so deceptively simple, but when done right really satisfies. Great retro bathroom, in a spot that mixes the best of both.
There is homemade ice-cream in the dessert sundae that tops off a great meal-old school.
