High school buddies turned restaurateurs Alan Cooper and Stephen Cohen’s ingredient-focused New American restaurant in Fort Greene is a favorite amongst food lovers in the Fort Green area, and for good reason. The 46-seat space features wood from the original Coney Island boardwalk, and the walls of the restaurant are adorned with early twentieth-century photographs. While every choice on the a la carte menu would be a wise one, the restaurant also offers a stunning five-course tasting menu. Prospect has its very own in-house pastry chef, so make sure you do not leave the restaurant without ordering some sweets. Make a Reservation.
