How Will Grandma Get There?  There is a subway stop (D/N/R) a block from The Pines. Guests can stay in NYC or in nearby hotels such as the boutique Hotel Le Bleu.

Party On!  Events can go until midnight. The party can stay in the garden until 11, but because of the neighbors would have to be moved inside for the last hour. If the tables were cleared out there could be a dance floor with room for 60-70.

The Report: 

Executive Chef John Poiarkoff has created a “modern interpretation of American cooking” at The Pines, featuring seasonal and house-made ingredients as well as being one of the only restaurants in the country that offers ONLY natural wines. (we’re a fan!). You can read a review of the restaurant over at The New York Times.

Woman Getting Married Says:

This is definitely the antithesis of a wedding factory. In fact, I’ve only seen photos of one wedding here. But I think this place could be a gem. It’s quirky and unique and extremely laid-back without sacrificing style. It’s also got that urban botanical vibe which feels like quintessential Brooklyn. My only concern is the size. While they can accommodate 70 people I would opt to keep it closer to 60.
