Named after a notoriously elusive rum-running prohibition ship, the Black Duck resides in a beautifully restored 18th century brownstone. Besides the the historical landscape, we offer an array of Contemporary American delicacies served by candlelight. The romantic yet New England inspired décor perfectly compliments the backlit alabaster bar. Our elegant and cozy lounge with a fireplace is perfect for a happy hour drink (served daily from 4:00 - 7:00) or to enjoy the live Jazz performed Friday and Saturday evenings. We end the week by playing the James Bond Film Series on our dining room projector.<br />

"A very pleasant meal. The jazz trio that was playing that evening added great ambiance. The ducking was delicious, but the steak slightly overdone."

WELCOME TO VERDE ON SMITH RESTAURANT, located in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill. Established in 2009 by Cono Morena, our food is rooted in the traditions of Northern Italian cuisine with a Southern accent. Only the finest organic ingredients are used for all dishes to be savored and enjoyed with our extensive wine list. Verde on smith is the marrying of Italian traditional cooking with a contemporary twist and a modern setting. Cono Morena was born in Salerno, Italy. He moved to New York in 1968 where he began his career in restaurant management. In 1985, he opened his first restaurant, Primadonna, located in Forest Hills, Queens. Verde is a result of over 35 years experience as a chef, manager and restaurant owner in New York.
