Root-beer-glazed pork ribs with heirloom baked beans, Tuscan kale, and Asian-pear slaw.
Good news if you’re a fan of Williamsburg’s Brooklyn Winery: Owners Brian Leventhal and John Stires are opening a proper restaurant, called BKW, this Tuesday in Crown Heights. They’ve brought on chef Michael Gordon, formerly of Bouley, to oversee a simple menu of the kind of elevated snack food that serves to complement the wine, like crispy Brussels sprouts with apple-cider caramel and pastrami; smoked bacon with roasted broccoli and maple candy; and a hanger steak with barbecue potato chips. As for the wine, there’s a mix of affordable glasses (a $10 un-oaked Chardonnay from the Finger Lakes, a $11 Sonoma rosé) as well as splurge-worthy bottles like an award-winning $145 2010 bottle of Pinot Noir. Take a look:
BKW, 747 Franklin Ave., 718-399-1700
