Along the East River, straight across from Manhattan, is the elegant area of Brooklyn Heights, situated in the popular borough of Brooklyn, home to spectacular views and even better food. Read our guide to some of the best Michelin star restaurants in the area, for a noteworthy dining experience.
Aska is a 2 Michelin star awarding-winning restaurant in Brooklyn, that offers an array of Scandanavian cuisine, produced masterfully from Swedish chef and owner, Fredrik Berselius. After opening in 2012, it only took a year for Aska to achieve a one-star Michelin rating, going on to earn 2 stars by 2016, which it has held onto since. The restaurant manages to achieve both an intimate feeling, with only ten tables available in the dining area, but also an openness with all food prepared in an open kitchen. Berselius takes pride in his culinary heritage and ensures only the freshest of ingredients are used in order for diners to truly understand the value of Scandinavian flavors. To be expected, there is a heavy focus of seafood, where the Nordic combinations used really change the way you view seafood. As something a little different Aska offers different types of juices to accompany your meal if you prefer to not have wine. For anyone wanting to have a taste of Scandinavia, Aska cannot come highly recommended enough, head to their website to see more and make a booking – http://askanyc.com/
Hidden away in the behind a pizzeria, you would never for a moment think Blanca’s would be worth your time, but this 2 Michelin star restaurant says otherwise. The set up inside is a little different from what you would ordinarily expect, with it being in a loft setting with a very laid back decor involving wood and vinyl, however, what the menu tasting offers is far from laid back. Blanca’s menu is contemporary American food, with up to around 27 courses being served depending on the options available, it is certainly much more than you would think you need, but the smaller portions with explosive flavors leave you feeling extremely satisfied rather than too overwhelmed. Blanca’s is impressive and successful, with its unique approach to fine-dining, it is a pleasurable event, so be sure to grab your place via their website. http://www.blancanyc.com/
As you may have surmised from the name, Claro is a Mexican restaurant currently holding a 1 Michelin star award. While it is fine-dining, Claro does keep the authenticity of the Mexican flavors, with all the dishes you would expect including seared pork, crispy tortillas, spicy salsas, and variants of chilies and beans that all have an intense and mouthwatering taste. Of course, as a Michelin star restaurant, it makes sure that you finish your meal and leave for the night feeling completely bowled over by the flavors, attention to detail, and Oaxacan specialties. The interior is charming and full of character with an open fire, open kitchen, and bar, that only adds to an already enjoyable time. Claro is both elegant and stylish that will convince even the most skeptical of a diner to return. Bookings can be made in advance at their website – https://www.clarobk.com/
