ABOUT Basil Pizza & Wine Bar

Basil, Brooklyn’s one of a kind pizza and wine bar, made its debut in 2010. It soon received acclaim from prestigious publications like The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and Wine Spectator Magazine. Owned by Daniel Branover, Basil features trendy cuisine that has enticed kosher diners, vegetarian diners & non-kosher diners alike. Its menu has been updated by Chef extraordinaire Jose Soto, who grew up just a few blocks away and trained at a host of Manhattan non-kosher eateries, including the great Savoy Restaurant in Soho.

Offering distinctive and exciting combinations, Basil’s menu is certainly not for the ‘hamburger-French fry-chicken nugget’ crowd. Try the Arugula Salad for a wonderful blend of flavors- warm goat cheese, beets, arugula, truffle vinaigrette and pine nuts, or the Parmesan and Asparagus Pizza- parmiggiano, smoked paprika, Vidalia onions, roasted peppers and white asparagus- for a warm, crusty and filling meal. And, of course, don’t miss the famous Basil Fries – crunchy, homemade fries topped with parmesan cheese and parsley, served with a warm garlic-mayo dipping sauce. Everything is plated to perfection by their chefs, treating every white plate as their canvas. With its modern interior and background music; the sleek, steel and marble furniture is softened by the warm glow the pizza oven casts over the room. Sample Basil’s superior collection of red and white wines and assorted beers, and don’t forget the dessert menu with items like cheese cake, funnel cake and tiramisu.

If you’re in the area, visit Chabad World Headquarters, take a walking tour, stroll along Eastern Parkway and explore the Jewish Children’s Museum. End your day with a leisurely meal here and savor the flavors of this eclectic restaurant.

If there was ever a reason to travel to Crown Heights, than Basil Pizza & Wine Bar is definitely it. It is conveniently located just one block from the 3 train and you can easily to find parking there at night. Basil is head and shoulders above all the other dairy restaurants in New York. While they can be pricy, the food is always worth the shlep. Their innovative menu has a range of dishes that can appeal to anyone - it includes pasta, pizza and fish, but served in a way you would not typically expect. Everything is beautifully plated and tastes amazing too. I normally avoid fried food, but their Basil Fries are worth it, and the Funnel Cake paired with Basil Ice Cream is to die for. I've even made a point of traveling there for breakfast and was not disappointed. If you like delicious food that is easy on the eyes, then go to Basil!

my kids went there they said it was good but most people claim the portions are small so when you go to a restaurant and you leave hungry that's not a good sign

The food was great! Great presentation. Delicious! VERY reasonably priced considering it's the only kosher, up-scale, restaurant in Crown Heights and it serves beer and wine.
