Sue Perette on Smith St. just showed up on a list of best of Brooklyn food and drink by L Magazine (those little magazines you see around town geared toward the hipster set, but chocked full of cultural life information). The magazine recommended the filet mignon served with creamy potato/squash gratin. Indeed, I ate at Sue Perette Saturday night. It was quiet, calm, relaxing, and I had the filet: it was fantastic, and cooked perfectly. The ricotta gnudi (gnocci) was also very good, as was the wine.
The atmosphere is clean and crisp. Sue Perette also serves a very nice brunch.
