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...More

Corned beef is shredded. Salads dressed nicely, just right. Eggs poached...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.

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...More

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.
