Fine Dining in Bergen Hill’s 3 ft x 5 ft Kitchen

Carroll Gardens’ Bergen Hill may lack an oven, only have a few induction burners and a sandwich press and measure 3 feet by 5 feet; however, that doesn’t stop Chef Andrew D’Ambrosi and Sous-Chef Anthony Mongeluzzi from churning out delicious, inventive Italian fare. One of the many popular dishes is a squid “tagliatelle”, or squid that’s been shaved into ribbons to resemble tagliatelle, cooked to al-dente perfection. D’Ambrosi and Mongeluzzi honed their culinary sleight at Le Cirque; while the ambiance may be less stuffy at Bergen Hill, the standards are equally high. Both men have taken a humble approach since the restaurant’s opening in September, as Mr. D’Ambrosi contributed to the creation of the Mediterranean-tile tabletops. He has no problem shoveling snow off the restaurant’s threshold as well.
