Reviews for The Brooklyn Star

The Brooklyn Star

This neighborhood fave has long lines for good reason. Gutbusting Southern comforts like country fried steak, bacon jalapeño cornbread, pork shank piled high with thick-cut onion rings, and a massive t-bone for two line the menu like artery fat -- just go, and apologize to your body with a juice detox tomorrow.


Helmed by one of the co-founders of Momofuku, this is Brooklyn Lardcore at its best: hearty, unpretentious food cooked with special care and served in a rowdy setting.

Best Southern Food in Brooklyn – I'm from New Orleans and when I eat their shrimp and grits I swear I'm 10 years old again. I've searched for a great southern restaurant all over this city and nothing beats the Star. Cornbread, Dr. Pepper Ribs, all amazing. If I lived closer, I'd eat here every week. Even without reservations, it's my favorite place for celebration/holiday dining.

Smart Southern food – Joaquin Baca was a partner and co-chef at the now-famous Momofuku restaurants, so it makes sense that expectations would run high for his first venture without culinary celebrity David Chang. His Brooklyn restaurant, however, is a modest endeavor, consisting of a coal-burning oven, a twangy alt-country soundtrack and 42 seats packed into a small space on a quiet Williamsburg street. Baca’s modern Southern cuisine lacks Momofuku’s post-fusion flash, but dishes like soft buttermilk biscuits, bacon-laden mac and cheese, Dr. Pepper ribs and fried pig tails are all executed with care, in a style that’s homey and casual with a refined touch.
