These cutting-edge eateries are all about the visual pyrotechnics, although not at the expense of sophistication and flavor. The modern Scandinavian restaurant Aska replaced the pop-up Frej in Kinfolk Studios, granting patrons permanent access to Dried Pigs Blood chips and Local Sea-Buckthorn Berry jelly. Visitors at Prospect at Fort Greene can go for straightforward fare like burgers and fries, but are better served by a trip to the Chef’s Table, for intriguingly conceived dishes like “Nitro Foie Balls,” with Winter Citrus, Meyer Lemon Cake, Poppy Seed Crumble, and Orange Snow. And our winner, Gwynnett St.
, constructs serious eye-candy from deceptively simple ingredients, like an ash-dusted and brined Amish chicken, perched on a cornucopia of potatoes, rutabaga, and brightly colored beets.
