The Brooklyn Wine + Tapas is a stunning new sip spot at the base of the Brooklyn @ Varsity building. The impressive new venue is the second from husband-and-wife dream team Shaun Dunn and Leisa Provost, who also own the neighbouring Oscar Italia. While Oscar was envisaged as a congenial neighbourhood eatery, The Brooklyn Tapas + Wine is here to elevate the entire dining experience – from the moment you step foot through the doors to the moment you leave. Depending on your mood, The Brooklyn Wine + Tapas bar offers a range of different areas. The Parlour, for example, is the perfect place to sip an aperitif before moving into the main dining area, which is fittingly referred to as the Grand Dining Room. Skirting the edge is The Snug, an intimate date-night nook and at the far end of the venue, you’ll spy The Library – a flexible space that can be used as an extension of the main restaurant as well as a private function area. There is also a private dining room with its own dedicated wait staff, for those extra special occasions. The menu intentionally eases you outside of your culinary comfort zone. Described as tapas with an international flair, diners can bite into delightfully crispy rice squares topped with ponzu-soaked tuna, burrata with prosciutto, pea puree, chilli and mint, and pepper-crusted kangaroo fillet that arrives at your table under a smokey cloche to highlight the sensory flavour of the paperbark. Larger plates include a rich pork belly with mascarpone and fennel puree and a butter-poached lobster. The drinks selection is equally as worldly with a geographically diverse wine list, craft beers and a sizeable list of cocktails.
