The Runner - Walt Whitman wrote this simple but impactful poem while living around the block on Ryerson Street. It served as a metaphor and homage to the Industrial Revolution and growth happening in America. He saw Clinton Hill as a place to escape the commotion of city life. We share his opinion of our neighborhood, too.<br /> <br />We choose The Runner for our name to celebrate the very same growth and progress happening on Myrtle Avenue and in Clinton Hill that Whitman spoke of.<br /> <br />We think The Runner should be the kind of place where the history and diversity of our neighborhood is celebrated in local flavors, Brooklyn ambience and community interaction. It’s why we’re serving food and drinks inspired by American comfort enhanced by the use of a natural wood fired oven. That’s what we mean by “an American Heritage restaurant.” Come see for yourself.<br />

Shaya is an innovative restaurant with a warm and welcoming approach to the dining culture inspired by Chef Alon Shaya’s Israeli upbringing. Chef Alon sees modern Israeli food as a grand mosaic, drawing influence from North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Turkey and Greece. The menu at Shaya reflects the ongoing evolution of Israeli food, while celebrating the abundance of Louisiana and Alon’s close relationships with local farmers, which he has fostered through his ongoing work with the Crescent City Farmer’s Market. In keeping with the the ethos of all of the Besh restaurants, Shaya uses seasonal, responsibly- and locally-sourced ingredients. Similar to Alon’s other establishments in New Orleans, the wood-fire oven will be central to the menu development and the dining experience, starting with a basket of homemade warm wood-fired pita. Many dishes on the diverse menu are meant to be shared. Diners can expect Middle Eastern dishes such as falafel, kebabs and baba ganoush.

Johnny Sánchez is the inaugural restaurant collaboration of two old friends known for their world-class cuisine. John and Aarón, each of whom has been recognized with some of the culinary world’s most coveted awards, met years ago when Aarón began his career in New Orleans, working for legendary chef Paul Prudhomme. Later, the chefs’ paths crossed again while competing on the first season of Food Network’s “Next Iron Chef.” Since then, the two have become great friends and each has lit up the culinary scene by utilizing his unique talents and skills to entertain and educate the country about shared passions: food, drink, and hospitality. <br /><br />Serious food but a fun environment is the name of the game. Stepping through the door will bring guests out of their everyday routine and into a inspired atmosphere reminiscent of Mexico City.

Built around a California-style culinary philosophy that takes heavy cues from the seasons, Upland balances a familiar rusticity with a smart global approach, all enhanced with a New Yorker’s eye for detail. The restaurant offers an artful array of starters, entrees and sides, each plate accented with chef Justin Smillie’s enticing and urbane touch. The wine program, overseen by beverage manager Chantelle Pabros, matches the excitement coming out of Upland’s open kitchen, with a worldly 500-bottle list and a clever by-the-glass selection that’s remarkably food-friendly.

Benoit New York is the third member of Alain Ducasse’s Benoit family – which also includes the bistro in Paris since 1912, Benoit Tokyo and Le Comptoir de Benoit in Osaka. Benoit New York echoes the original bistro in Paris and represents an opportunity for Chef Ducasse to recreate a unique bistro experience within a dynamic urban environment while still preserving the tradition of Benoit Paris. The restaurant & bar offer a menu of classic French bistro cuisine at lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch.
