The Bounty

A farm-to-table destination in Greenpoint

By Claire Carusillo

Though located just a short stroll from the East River and Transmitter Park’s sweeping view of Midtown Manhattan, this cozy Greenpoint spot might as well be in a fishing town somewhere on the coast of Maine. With warm woodwork, clever nautical design details, and a ship’s sail spanning the length of the restaurant, The Bounty’s atmosphere feels intentional without toeing the line into “themed.” From inside, the weather out the windows almost always seems blustery as diners tuck into the warmth of a curated seasonal menu, starting with fresh happy hour oysters or a truffled sunchoke soup.

On days when the sun sets too early, The Bounty’s menu is pure old-school comfort, with a few genuine surprises from Chef Evan Sloan. The Autumn Garden salad, with a juniper vinaigrette, trades regular old croutons for a dewy, herbed sponge cake, while a sneaky cauliflower couscous hides beneath hand-rolled orecchiette. The traditional duck breast comes alongside a confit duck leg stuffing, rolled into a perfect meatball—crisp outside and buttery inside—that’s truly fun to eat. The menu’s thoughtfulness exemplifies the kind of dedication to quality that has made this north Brooklyn neighborhood a dining destination.
