While most of the restaurants in the area are casual weeknight spots, Fradei stands out as one of the only upscale places around. And this Italian wine bar isn’t afraid to have some fun with its dishes like pig ear terrine with plum mostarda or squid ink chitarra. But since this is still Brooklyn we’re talking about, showing up on their sidewalk patio in shorts and a t-shirt on a Wednesday night is totally acceptable. Before you do, be sure to check out their Instagram for information on their weekly specials.
