Basil – Finally Again


Late afternoon yesterday, SYR and I had the pleasure of stopping by Basil (see here and here) – 270 Kingston Ave; Brooklyn, NY 11213; Telephone: 718.285.8777. While many eateries, in the kosher world, become too complacent as their quality declines, Basil still maintains their high standards.

I started my meal with an ice cold Weihenstephan Beer. Brewed in Germany since 1040, at the world’s oldest existing brewery, it is a golden-yellow wheat beer, with its fine white foam, with aromas of cloves and a refreshing banana flavor. It is full bodied and with a smooth yeast taste. It paired superbly with the Wild Mushroom Pizza I shared with
SYR (it comes with a delicious goat cheese, mozzarella and truffle oil)…

and the Garlic-Truffle-Mayo and Parmesan Fries I had. SYR opted for a Roasted Cauliflower with Gremolata Breadcrumbs side.

they had a “delicate buttery and lemony taste,” she said. She washed it all down with a 2011 Baron Herzog Chardonnay. She described it as having, “intense floral aromas which were followed by notes of fresh peach, pear and citrus with hints of toasty vanilla oak. Soft in texture and well-balanced.”

We finished the meal with a selection of in-house pastries, which included a melt in your mouth chocolate croissant, an apple turnover, a cinnamon danish and more; a great finish for a great meal! We shouldn’t have waited so long to come back…
