My husband and I are spending a long weekend in Manhattan next month and would like to visit his much younger (30-ish) cousin, who recently moved to Park Slope. We're looking for a suitable spot for Sunday lunch (preferably) or brunch. Here are our preferences: (1) accessible by public transportation; (2)accepts reservations; (3) can accommodate one diner allergic to dairy and another who doesn't like seafood; and (4) not too noisy for conversation. We're flexible about cuisine--we like real Italian (not the red-sauce Italian-American) but would love to try something we can't get here on Cape Cod. Some good craft beer would make my husband very happy, and we would be willing to venture beyond Park Slope to Williamsburg or Red Hook.
Any ideas for us? I'm reasonably familiar with Manhattan, but not Brooklyn, and haven't come up with much searching the board. Thanks.
