No longer do you have to squeeze into 28-seat Battersby to enjoy Joseph Ogrodnek and Walker Stern's food: Their new, 2,800-square-foot Carroll Gardens restaurant is about twice the size. It even has a 600-square-foot courtyard to rival Battersby's lovely outdoor space. You can choose between an à la carte menu or a seven-course tasting for $95 — and while the menus will change often, they currently include winter squash with oyster mushrooms, seared foie gras with huckleberries, and soba noodles with a generous serving of Maine sea urchin. Take a look at the food, the menus, and the space, straight ahead.
