Foodie website Serious Eats tells it like it is… so when they like what they taste, there’s little higher praise. Last week, the New York site gave a shimmering review to Cobble Hill intimate eatery Bittersby at 255 Smith Street, titled “Good Food Comes in Small Spaces,” heralding co-owners and chefs Joseph Ogrodnek and Walker Stern.
Reviewer Carey Jones writes in an exhaustively detailed piece: “What did our meal at Battersby tell me? That these chefs have dead-on intuition for how people want to be eating. That they seize on an impulse and cook it well—not just rushing vegetables with a 3-week season onto their menu, but preparing them as well as if they did it every day. And that flavor, balance and execution all seem to matter enormously.”
