We went to dinner at the Brooklyn. I had Osyers Brooklyn for an appetizer and California sturgeon for the main course. My companion had a green salad and a filet mignon. We split a bottle of Jordan chardonnay. No desserts, just black coffee after dinner.

The oysters were fanastic. Four of them in a sort of cheese sauce. The Brooklyn's take on Oysters Rockefeller, but better than the Oysters Rockefeller I've had many times back East. Not so smothered in sauce and breading as to drown out the oysters, as so frequently happens with Oysters Rockefeller.

The sturgeon had a sort of peppercorn crust and it was frankly pretty heavy on the peppercorn. But it was still excellent, and came with vegetables in some fantastic sauces. My companion's steak was fantastic. We wound up asking the waiter for the name of the place where they get the steak, and will be contacting them to get some steaks for home. They're corn-fed Nebraska steaks and they were amazingly good. The sauce was fantastic.

With tas, tip and wine ($50), the bill for two came to $160. We'll definitely be returning.
