The 10 Most Underrated Restaurants in Brooklyn

Petit Oven

It would have been easy for classically trained chef Katarzyna Ploszaj—formerly of the Jean George Vongerichten-owned JoJos on the UES—to open up her own restaurant on Smith Street, say, or somewhere along Fifth Avenue in Park Slope. Instead, she took a gamble on her own neighborhood of Bay Ridge, opening a miniscule (barely 30-seat) jewel of a French-American eatery on 276 Bay Ridge Ave. just under five years ago. It turns out the gamble paid off. Petit Oven has since become a haven for local foodies in the know—who obediently turn up on Wednesdays for the three course, $25 prix fixe, on Thursdays for the all-you-can-eat, $19 moules and frites, and just about anytime for a wedge of homemade warm bread pudding with walnuts and salty caramel.
