Expert review of Klee Brasserie

An Austro-American eatery that offers more than gimmicks.

Klee Brasserie made headlines in early 2010 after Chef Daniel Angerer served cheese made from his wife’s breast milk. The controversy certainly put the restaurant on the map, even though it may have grossed out patrons (the health department has since asked Angerer to cease and desist). However unappealing the breast cheese gimmick was, Klee deserves a visit. Angerer serves Austro-American cuisine. 

Food and drink: 

The restaurant only uses organic and sustainable ingredients from local farms, which is definitely noticeable in the satisfying food. The wine list has won awards for its organic and biodynamic selection.

Recommended dishes: 

The “Egg in a hole” raddichio salad features deviled eggs surrounded by pickles and truffle dressing. The Spring Lamp Roll-up is cooked for 24 hours and is something favored by every friend I have taken to the restaurant. 

Ambience: 

.An exposed brick wall, chandeliers and a green, yellow and white mural make for a playful atmosphere. Maybe that's by Angerer tried to sell the breast cheese. The clientele is more mature and European. 

Service: 

Service is good. The space is small so everyone is catered to in an efficient manner. 

Location: 

On a busy but calm stretch of Ninth Avenue. 

Price advice: 

Brunch and lunch are good options if you want to save money. Dinner runs about $90-$100 for two.
