Fodor's Expert Review The Vanderbilt

$$ Prospect Heights Modern American
The mellowest of longtime Brooklyn chef Saul Bolton’s several restaurants in the borough, the Vanderbilt offers a broad menu in a large space. Comfort food like meatballs, chicken, and pork chops are joined by creative small plates, a charcuterie menu, a well-chosen craft-beer menu, cocktails, and brunch specialties (including delicious shrimp and grits). For a higher-end experience, Bolton’s The Norm (closed Monday and Tuesday) is in the Brooklyn Museum. Locals agree the menu there became less exceptional after a transfer from Cobble Hill, but the presentation is polished.
