Review By: Thomas Rafael
It's not often you get to fall in love with a restaurant. But Berlyn will tempt you. It's German roots don't stray very far from its Austrian predecessor, Thomas Beisl, which led the way for fine dining in Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighborhood.
Our meal began with delicious rye bread, dense and flavorful, and packed with fennel seeds. We also sampled Ariane's Frikadellan; bite-size German meatballs with onions and capers served with a cucumber salad. We thoroughly enjoyed the Landsalat, a salad prepared with red cabbage, crushed walnuts, bits of apple and tangy goat cheese. We couldn't resist the Wiener Schnitzel, two tender pan-fried veal cutlets served with German-style potato salad. And be sure to order a side of potato pancakes. They're wonderfully crispy and very addictive. Appetizers are in the $6-$12 range and entrees top out at $22.
But what you'll like most about your visit is the feeling you get while you're there. Because for just a moment you'll feel as if you've arrived in Berlin minus the airfare. What's not to love about that!
