UPDATE: Dover has closed due to lack of business. Surprising.
Last night, we visited friends in Brooklyn, and were treated to a lovely dinner at Dover, a modern American restaurant on Court Street. The food was excellent, so I was surprised that it was not at all busy.
They have a happy hour that runs until 8 pm, during which they offer oysters, raw or broiled, for $1 apiece. I had a half-dozen each of raw and broiled. I love oysters so this was great fun. They give you delicious little gougeres to start, then an amuse-bouche of tomato soup. The lamb loin I had for my main was perfectly done, and served with Brussels sprouts and chanterelles. I also got to taste the ravioli and pappardelle, both excellent. I drank a milk stout (Against the Grain from Louisville, KY), very tasty.
Main course choices include three meat and three fish dishes. The fish can be had as a large or small portion. A pasta and a small fish course could make a filling meal.
I could definitely see returning to Dover.
