seasonal, Modern american dining in gowanus, brooklyn

The Pines is a cozy 40-seat restaurant offering a modern interpretation of American cooking, with inventive cocktails, craft beers, and natural wines. The Pines is built on excellent service, with a lively, welcome energy that encourages guests dropping in for a drink at the bar as well as adventurous diners sharing dishes among friends.

Chef John Poiarkoff

Executive Chef John Poiarkoff marries new and familiar tastes with 
a focus on seasonal and house-made ingredients. His menus speak of a dedication to what is exciting and delicious: fresh pasta, cured meats, foraged produce and atypical ingredients. His cooking provides guests a dining experience that's intellectual as well as soul-satisfying.

The Pines is one of the only restaurants in the country that offers only natural wines. The list focuses on small, biodynamic vintners, mostly French and Italian. Chef Poiarkoff and General Manager Anthony Mastropolo collaborate on the cocktail program, creating conceptual, aromatic drinks that complement the food but also stand on their own.

BROOKLYN MAGAZINE

You’d hardly expect to find a restaurant like Willow nestled directly under Franklin Avenue’s elevated C-train, flanked by a Dunkin’ Donuts, a Papa John’s and a Crown’s Fried Chicken. And yet, the intriguingly angled eatery [is] a tiny and multi-faceted diamond in the rough, which perfectly reflects the progression of stunning snacks and scrupulously constructed small plates planned for the bite-sized kitchen.  

This is The Pines team’s newest passion project ... Slated to open on April 2nd, the seasonally focused spot is equally committed to sustainable sourcing, natural wines and house-made everything, just a bit dialed-down, in order to suit the community and the space.

When Poiarkoff took over as executive chef, he overhauled everything—the fresh vegetables, how often the menu changes, the wine list, and where he got his meat. “For me, its cool supporting the little guys, and its also the quality of product,” he told me over beers.

THE NEW YORK TIMES 

On any given night (the menu is edited daily), there are approximately 18 to 20 dishes, informally grouped into starters, handmade pastas and small vegetable and protein plates. It’s evident at first glance that the menu is antistandard by what it lacks: roast chicken, kale salad and burgers…Instead, they will eat an oxtail cappellacci in which land and sea get paired together: the savory notes of the meat-filled pasta purses are further amplified by a briny crab reduction.
