The Sunburnt Calf Brooklyn, a.k.a. "the Calf BK," opened quietly on Thursday in Prospect Heights with cocktails from the Summit Bar's quaff maestro Greg Seider; food will follow this weekend. The drink lineup includes a Thai basil lemonade, a calamansi sour made with calamansi limes and Yamazaki whiskey, and other Asian-themed libations. The "Australasian" from chefs Jimmy Tu (Eleven Madison Park) and Christopher Faulkner is Asian- and seafood-leaning, with ample noodle options and a choose-your-own-filling "wrap & roll" section. Weekday breakfast will be served, along with lunch and boozy brunch. Scope out the 20-seat restaurant (with 40-space outdoor garden) in our slideshow, and see the menus below.
