Brooklyn Warehouse is away from the downtown and a great place for folks who work nearby to grab a quick bite or a leisurely lunch.

I meet two colleagues for a working lunch. Service is efficient and cheerful and the decor is lovely. Tables are far enough apart for a private conversation.

The Bahn-Mi NYC, Vietnamese Pulled Pork on Ciabatta tempts me. With pickled cucumber, Daikon radish, carrot, cilantro and cucumber mayo, it’s delicious and filling.

The BLT Club is equally tasty with smoked chicken, bacon, arugula, tomato, and shaved parmesan — served on grilled Ciabatta as well.

The Warm Mushroom Salad features roasted mushrooms, baby spinach, pancetta crisps and feta.

For dessert we share a French Toasted Spice Cake. The texture and appearance is like French Toast, but this orange cardamom-infused cake is something else. All meetings should end so sweetly.
