Prime Meats

Bratwurst, Bockwurst, and Knackwurst walked into a bar, and out came Prime Meats. The brainchild of Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli, the owners of Frankies 457 Spuntino, up the block, this Carroll Gardens hall of artisanal delights opened in 2009. A meal here proceeds, “with all the jollity and good manners of something scripted by Laura Ingalls Wilder and scored by the Grateful Dead,” said Sam Sifton in his 2010 New York Times review. “It is an extremely pleasant place.” According to the restaurant’s website, Prime Meats “celebrates the lighter side of Alpine cuisine.” That translates as house-made sausages, crispy vegetables, and Dry-Aged Cote de Boeuf for two. That latter dish will run you $152, so lighter also applies to your wallet, too. (465 Court St., Brooklyn, 718-254-0327.)
