Brooklyn Proper is a seasonally inspired restaurant. We serve simple, rustic food focusing on fresh products sourced from local farms and markets. 

We dreamed of opening a restaurant and bar that would provide simple, seasonal food and drinks to the community, landing on beautiful Windsor Terrace as the perfect neighborhood. As we uncovered the area's interesting Dutch Colonial history, a concept was born. Even our name recalls the time when Windsor Terrace became part of “Brooklyn proper.”

With the talented Chef Caite Whitbeck (of Buvette and Chez Panisse), beverage director Ginger Warburton (of Grand Banks, The Dutch, Isa) and Julian Mohamed (of Dear Bushwick) teamed up to create an intimate space with proper food and proper drink.
