    Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare

    Local Expert Tip: "Time to prepare shouldn't be too difficult for guests at chef Cesar Ramirez's table as it is a hard place to get a seat. Make reservations well in advance and bring cash. Also, no large groups or private tables for two here. Everyone sits around one counter to watch the chef work his magic."
