Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen







“Rivaling any place in Manhattan”, this Forest Hills “gem” is a “low-key” neighborhood retreat that's beloved for its “excellent” European fare, “fabulous” wine list and “on-the-mark” service, all offered at “Queens prices”; if that’s not enough, there's a “can’t-be-beat” prix fixe deal on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

About the Restaurant

Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen, the only Michelin-starred restaurant in Queens, offers an excellent value for an elegant experience, compared to its Manhattan equivalents. A handsome six-seat bar greets guests upon entry and leads to a pleasant contemporary dining room with white linens on the tables and original artwork on the walls. A mature crowd and young couples enjoying a respite from the kids come for cured meat and cheese boards; small plates of Serrano ham croquettes, grilled calamari, and mackerel tartare; and main dishes such as duck confit with mustard sauce, wild mushroom risotto and grilled hangar steak and frites. The wine list, like the food menu, emphasizes Europe; it includes 20 selections by the glass, over 80 bottles, and a number of flights. A three-course prix fixe — perhaps Tuscan bean soup, roasted skate in hazelnut brown butter, and rum raisin carrot cake — rotates monthly and is available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Nearest subways
E, F, M, R to Forest Hills – 71st Ave.; Long Island Rail Road to Forrest Hills

What to tell a cabbie
Take me to the corner of Metropolitan Ave. and 71st Dr. in Queens. (From many points in the city, a taxi ride to Forrest Hills will be expensive. Consider taking the Subway or Long Island Rail Road or ask the staff at your hotel to arrange a fixed fare with a car service.)
