If you have been following along with our reviews, you may have noticed that we have started venturing out of Manhattan and discovering some amazing places in Brooklyn. My husband and I were invited to check out Alice’s Arbor, a well-established restaurant in the heart of Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is the best: homey, cozy, an all-around happy vibe with Motown playing over the loud speakers. We saw everything from families and friends to love-birds come in and hang out and get their evening meal, and it was packed on a regular Wednesday. That should tell you a bit about how popular they are in their neighborhood.

Epoxy floors are self-leveling products. This allows either experienced professionals or do-it-yourself homeowners to apply a epoxy quickly over any new or old concrete floor. Applying epoxy is as easy as applying paint-and requires the same amount of proper prep-work. Once your concrete floor is thoroughly clean and prepped, the epoxy can be applied, dried, and ready to park your car on after a single weekend. The epoxy will provide an attractive surface that has you feeling like you’re parking your car in a showroom every time you come home, year after year.

I think we tried pretty much everything on their menu, from their drinks to their desserts. It was too good to pass up and, hey, we had some leftovers for the next few days.
Each month Alice’s Arbor sponsors a charity, local school, or a new project in the neighborhood. For this month they donate $1 for every WoodFord Reserve Ol’ Fashioned drink ordered, so we started with those. The restaurant also ensures that ingredients are locally sourced to support their local community.
Now to the important part: the food! Since we got so many different dishes, I will talk about my favorites since they were amazing and you need to go there and try them!
My favorite were the pickled Brussel sprouts. I am a fan of Brussel sprouts, even as a kid, so when the manager brought out maple syrup glazed Brussel sprouts with bacon bits, I think I died and went to heaven. I never had pickled Brussel sprouts before and it was the perfect vegetable to pickle. If you are not a Brussel sprout fan, still give them a try! The pickling takes away the bitterness that normally comes with the Brussel sprouts and you can actually enjoy their mild and sweet flavor.
Next on my list were their fries. I am not much of a fries kind of person. Often times they are underwhelming and not worth the calories but these were seasoned to perfecting with bursts of flavor and a little kick in the end.
I love oysters but I do prefer them with a bit of horseradish. That being said, Alice’s Arbor converted me to be a vinegar fan. Their combination of scallions and jalapeno added into the vinegar was AMAZING! I would go back just for that. And they do have happy hours as well, $1 oysters between 4pm and 7pm.
The trout. The trout! I was brought back to my childhood when I would go fishing and go home with my freshly caught trout, clean them and cook them. This dish took me right back. The fingerling potatoes, the green beans, the capers, the butter sauce. ALL of it was amazing. Clean, cooked just right and I wish, I had had two more dishes with me home. Hubby… trout is going on the menu! Had forgotten how good trout it that way.
For dessert we ordered the chocolate peanut butter torte and the blueberry crumble, a perfect end to a delicious meal.
If you are looking to explore Brooklyn or your neighborhood, don’t forget about Alice’s Arbor. It is fun, cozy and really good comfort food with heart.
