Since 2014, Alsatian Brasserie La Cigogne Still A Favorite Spot In Carroll Gardens

Back in 2014, Damien Frey and Jeremy Andre opened La Cigogne in Carroll Gardens and introduced the neighborhood to the simple, yet delicious foods of the Alsace region of France.
Since then,  La Cigogne has became a favorite in the neighborhood for its casual ambience, reasonably priced menu, interesting cocktails and great draft beer selection, which includes Meteor , from a family-owned brewery near Strasbourg, which has been in operation since 1640.

Recently, Frey and Andre have updated and expanded their brasserie’s menu. But fear not, their Alsatian specialties like Tartes Flambées, Spätzle and regional charcuterie and cheese platters are still well represented. Many of the ingredients used are sourced from local food purveyors like Stinky, Los Paisanos, and Mazzola Bakery.  The menu also includes such french classics as onion soup, escargots,  moules frites and steak tartare.
On a recent visit, we had the tuna tartare appetizer, the traditional tarte flambée with crème, lardons and onions, as well as the cheese board.  Everything was delicious, especially accompanied by a glass of  Côtes Du Rhône. 
If you have somehow not tried this friendly, easy going neighborhood spot yet, you really should venture in, take a seat by the fireplace and enjoy!
