Royal's Downtown - At Royal’s Downtown, you certainly don’t have to worry about not fitting into the royal circle. The staff will make you feel like royalty regardless. Enter and wait for the friendly hostess at the door to direct you to your crisp white linen table and order one of the tasty martinis to start off your night. Right on Union Street, this place screams, “Come hither.” With its outdoor patio and indoor space, it offers the best of Brooklyn for those natives who opt to skip the Manhattan scene, without sacrificing the Manhattan vibe. The owner, Stephen Henderson, born and bred in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn feeds to a mixed Brooklynite crowd. The food is delectable, especially the highly acclaimed braised Berkshire pork drizzled with stone-ground mustard broth, which lies next to rosemary bread pudding for an added treat. Brunch is also available, so wake up early and be sure to make it in time. You’ll be glad you did.
