ABOUT Basil Pizza & Wine Bar

Having originally opened by Danny Branover in 2011 as a chic Italian bistro providing contemporary Italian cuisine, Basil has entered a new age of cleaner, simpler ingredients, and fresher fare. Its woodstone oven helps create a range of delicious specialty pizzas, and its open kitchen not only allows for staff efficiency but provides a culinary show and removes the veil between patron and kitchen. It also gives the chefs and cooks a venue to show off and have a good time, giving the restaurant an energetic atmosphere.

As mentioned, many times since they opened, the Crown Heights pizza and wine bar has always been out of the box with their approach to dairy with the presentation, experience, and flavors. This is not a cafe, but a restaurant. And one that feels like it's too cool to be kosher, but it is.

I would start the meal with their beet arugula salad, which comes with feta, toasted almonds, and dressing. Another option is their roasted cauliflower, roasted to perfection and served with A garnish that changes with the season.

[continued above, right]

For the main, there is plenty to choose from like pasta, pizza, salad, fish, and more. Go for any of their delicious pasta options like gnocchi served with scallions, cremini & oyster mushrooms. Their skillet Mac and cheese topped with crispy bits of cheddar is a good option.

Don’t forget dessert. You can choose from triple mousse cake, Crème Brûlée, sorbet, or a Belgian waffle.

So brooklynites head over to basil and tell us what you think!

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!

This is my favorite restaurant in Brooklyn! The food is always delicious! Love the decor and the ambiance. Arugula salad is amazing, white asparagus pizza, don't leave without trying the basil ice cream. Try any dessert on the menu - fantastic!

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.
