The Zagat Review
Named for an 18th-century mill on nearly the same site, this Gowanus American draws on local farms and producers for a menu that spans veggie-based plates, seafood and meat, including some wood-roasted options. Rough brick walls lend a semi-industrial look to the simple space, which also has a bar dispensing wine and seasonal cocktails.

Disappointing. • small portions • unfriendly service • they run out of the best dishes halfway through brunch • B health code rating • you’ll spend $50 per person & leave hungry We stopped in today for brunch after I have been wanting to go for a few months. The decor is beautiful and the menu is exciting. The service was pretty much terrible from start to finish. We weren’t really greeted by our waitress and she didn’t inform us right away that two of he menu items were done for the day. They happened to be the two items that everyone at our table had been planning to order so we had to pick other options. With such a small menu, how do you run out of two items halfway through brunch? The potions are very small for the price tag and the food was good but we had to order another “round” of food each because we were still hungry. The second round of food took a really long time to arrive and our waitress was not friendly and also unapologetic that she had forgotten a dish in our initial order. Brunch ended up being about $50 per person and we still left hungry and not feeling good about the service, so, all in all, v disappointing. 👎🏼

Don’t waste your money. Vibe is “cool” and food is not good. Octopus tasted like cardboard. Mushroom had texture like it was microwaved. Spaghetti was truly upsetting. Staff was very nice and professional.

My burger was really good, however the puntarelle salad (although good) was extremely overpriced for the tiny size. The hostess was nice, but the rest of the staff, including our waiter, were very rude and cold. Very surprised since we heard great things and was excited to check out but based on the above, I don't think we'll be back. Also, although the website says they're open until 3pm, we saw a couple come in at 2:46 and the hostess told them the kitchen closed at 2:45 so they couldn't sit down. Would've been nice to help them out as it seemed they traveled far to visit.
