My quest for food often brings me to the 5th and 7th Avenues in Park Slope; however, this “South Slope” 6th Avenue gem caught my attention with its thoughtfully cooked food.
I’ve had the pleasure of dining at Soigne twice now and I plan to visit many more times. Before we get into the food, I’d like to call out the impeccable service we experienced . We did not crane our necks once for our server nor did any question go unanswered. Okay – on to the food.
Okay, I lied. One more thing before the food. Soigne has an extensive wine list. For $14, you can enjoy a wine flight featuring three 3 oz. pours with unique personality profiles. This was a hit at the table, as pictured below! I admittedly chose the “juicy and round” flight because the name made me giggle, but it was deliciously refreshing throughout the meal.
Moving through our meal, some notable dishes included the wild mushroom risotto and a succulent beef tenderloin. The risotto was creamy and light, containing a mix of marscapone, parmigiano reggiano and white truffle for only 18 bucks. I found this to be a relatively affordable, decadent option. Don’t get me wrong the entrees were sumptuous, but Soigne has a way with its side dishes. The beef tenderloin was paired with bone marrow roasted potatoes and a rich sunchoke creamed spinach.
Even though I was full to the brim, I didn’t want the meal to end. My dessert of choice was quite satisfying – a light ricotta cheesecake topped with tangy Meyer lemon curd, lemon-thyme crumble and a sweet blackberry merlot sauce.
BrklynHospitality’s Quick and Dirty: 4.5/5. Soigne means carefully or elegantly done. This restaurant embodies that. Delightfully well-executed dishes do not disappoint. I returned on Mother’s Day for a prix-fixe brunch and I would recommend giving dinner a shot first. Soigne is great for groups, but also has a warm, intimate interior suitable for date night. Even though we had an adorable, well-behaved 1-year-old with us, I would recommend visiting with your girlfriends or your partner. Enjoy!
Pro tip: Complimentary treats may be offered with your meal :).
