Olmsted

Prospect Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, who had previously brought the metropolis Central Park. A local version of its history adds that the pair learned from their mistakes in Manhattan and, hence, the Brooklyn version is perfect. The chef Greg Baxtrom, a veteran of Alinea, Per Se, Atera, and Blue Hill at Stone Barns, opened Olmsted, a seasonally-driven restaurant named for the landscape architect, in Prospect Heights in 2016. It improves upon the farm to table concept by putting a garden in its backyard. Olmsted may be the only restaurant in the city with a general manager whose background is in public health and plant science. (659 Vanderbilt Ave., Brooklyn 718-552-2610.)
