Milk River: How about spending Labor Day with a Stormy Rum Punch and a steak with caramel-miso sauce, listening to live jazz? This clubby new Crown Heights café has a Caribbean-Asian bent (chef La-Niece Lyew is part Jamaican and part Chinese). But don’t worry about fusion confusion. The Mercer Kitchen and Umi Nom vet brings her classical training to the fore, resulting in refined dishes like fried sea bass with lily bulbs and candied ginger and a Niman Ranch pork chop with sautéed greens, shimeji mushrooms and a tangerine/sesame emulsion.
