From Schwarzwald with Love

Authentic German home style cooking


We grew up in Germany’s Black Forest, but only met in Brooklyn.

As a tribute to our love we opened Black Forest Brooklyn, serving homemade regional specialties and a unique selection of German draft beer, wines & craft spirits.

Black Forest Brooklyn opened in 2013 in Fort Greene as an instant neighborhood favorite with a warm and casual vibe for breakfast, lunch, brunch & dinner.

A second location opened in the Fall of 2017 at 181 Smith Street in Boerum Hill for lunch, brunch & dinner, featuring outdoor seating in a large backyard.
