All Four Char 4

I've been trying to start exploring Brooklyn. This whole area is unknown to me so it's exciting to discover and check out all the great restaurants. I had the opportunity to check out Char 4 on Smith St which at first glance seems to be full of great restaurants. We started with the smoked and fried pork nuggets with a nice chili sauce. Then for mains we ordered the BLT and the lamb pastrami sandwich, both were nothing like I expected. The BLT was small in size but packed full of a chunk of pork belly that had been battered and deep fried. Very good and very rich. The lamb pastrami was really interesting, it was basically super thin sliced smoked lamb (almost like prosciutto) with a nice mayo sauce and greens on top. It was served with a thick slice of grilled brown break and you spread the mayo and meat on the bread in a sort of make it yourself kind of way. The space is really beautiful and modern. There's a wonderful backyard terrace, where we sat for dinner, that's all enclosed with lovely simple wood slats all around it to create a very private space. I really want to try the brunch there and the rest of the menu. They specialize in whiskey and bourbon so would love to go back for drinks as well. (Please excuse the low fi photos, very low light situation)
