We stopped at Alchemy for a post-theater dinner after seeing a play at BAM. I liked the look of the place, worn and woody, with locals chatting in couples and trios. My burger was well-made and delicious, with a scrumptious brioche roll (sometimes brioche rolls are a better idea than a reality for a burger). My companion enjoyed the trout,... More

We come here fairly regularly, mainly for brunch. Comfortable pub ambience, perfect portions, hearty meals with fresh ingredients, and truly delicious Bloody Marys (one of our favorite spots for these). Everything made with care. Corned beef is shredded. Salads dressed nicely, just right. Eggs poached well. Mac N Cheese gets a nice crust that cracks when you hit it with... More

Slam Dunk for this pub/bar/restaurant. Great white bean & barley soup, fish and chips, really good with house made tartar sauce. Good choice. Try the Saratoga lager on tap.

Peeps in Brooklyn have no idea how spoiled they are by the number of great spots to just drop in for a beer or a meal. We visit regularly to see family, and discovering new eateries is always fun. This last weekend, our kids recommended Alchemy for breakfast. Sort of typical shotgun style building, nice bar, a row of booths... More

Not far from the Barclays Center. Very cozy atmosphere. Very attentive staff. They start serving alcohol at 9 a.m., along with food. So it's a great place to get a breakfast sandwich -- or in our case the Toad in the Hole (don't let the name throw you off, get it!!!) -- and a spicy bloody Mary. Good selection of... More

Great spot to go after a game or event at Barclays Center because it does not attract that sort of crowd. Quiet. Nice lighting design.

Originally went to Alchemy during happy hour before the Knicks vs Nets game and the price for draft beers was great! Also ordered some finger food which was amazing! The ribs are a must but not for sharing. :) Place isn't large but has plenty of tables.

Good food (it's not fine dining, but its good), interesting beers, relaxed ambience. For us, this was a welcome relief from the overpriced options on the Manhattan tourist trail.

Alchemy Restaurant & Tavern is a friendly neighborhood pub in Brooklyn serving delicious new American cuisine, local draft beers, and crafted cocktails. Come to us for a low-key dinner and casual hang out with dishes like our Gorgonzola walnut ravioli, the house made veggie burger, or our classic Alchemy fish and chips. We offer a weekend brunch with entrees created using organic eggs from Lancaster County and organic fair trade coffee from Counter Culture Coffee. Try our eggs Benedict, the huevos rancheros, or our famous chorizo eggs with jalapeno grits. Our cozy restaurant has indoor dining with TVs by the bar and a large projector screen for special events. We also have a private back patio for you to enjoy those gorgeous Brooklyn days and nights with a group of friends, family, or your special someone. Your complete satisfaction is our top priority here at Alchemy. The dark wood, refurbished antique bar, exposed brick, & friendly service combine to create a welcome atmosphere where you can enjoy anything from a relaxed pint to a four course meal.
