High-End Kosher Steakhouse Opens in Brooklyn: MEAT [incl. Menu & Pics]

MEAT located in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY

The long awaited opening of MEAT arrived earlier this August in Brooklyn, the brainchild restaurant from the team behind Basil in Crown Heights. We first discussed the opening of this restaurant 5.5 years ago (!!), but we’re glad to see this beautiful eatery open nonetheless.

Meat designed a luxurious restaurant experience, which welcomes you upon entering, where they designed an elegantly contemporary bar and lounge seating area with marble tiling. The restaurant’s main seating area includes armchair and banquette seating, as well as large windows to enjoy natural light during the day, and the sights of the neighborhood at night.

The restaurant’s private dining room juxtaposes an exposed brick accent wall with living ivy and a modern skylight that draws in historic Brooklyn.

While the restaurant is brand new, we should expect that menu changes both in terms of its offering and potentially pricing may happen in the future. Here’s the current menu as of end of August 2019:

There, he served as executive chef at the Herbert Samuel Hotel, before moving to Isrotel’s renowned Orient Jerusalem. Chef Reem’s previous experience includes positions with the acclaimed La Regence and King’s Garden restaurants, both at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, as well as Prague’s King David Hotel, where he worked under Chef Daniel Levy.​In addition to his restaurant work, Chef Reem has partnered on tasting menu projects with esteemed chefs, like Chefs Simone Zanoni and Bernard Bach, both awardees of two Michelin stars.
