Orange wines, red sparkling’s and rosé all day! June wine bar in the quaint Cobble Hill Brooklyn neighborhood has it all, an extensive list for all the winos and beginners alike with a selection of craft brews and cocktails along with a tasty brunch. The menu is short but sweet, simplistic but seriously delivers in flavor.
We went on Sunday at noon (party of 6) – we made reservations but it wasn’t entirely necessary, it wasn’t too busy. Retro lights shine above the bars length and restaurants entirety. Pots of flowers were scattered throughout between booths that lined the walls. Seriously charming!
We deff had the best booth in the house, a little alcove at the end of the bar. I started with the bloody Mary, as it was just one of those mornings. It was very tomato-y and slightly sweet. Couldn’t taste the alcohol but enjoyed the freshness overall. We sampled both sparkling rosé’s by the glass which were both great and very different, one a beautiful fuchsia color with a tart bite and the other more peachy and less bubbly. The Provence rosé was delightful on a warm day! The wine list overall consists of pages and pages of reds, whites, oranges and sparkling’s – there’s something for everyone.
The food menu is well rounded and offers an array of egg style dishes. We especially took a liking to the savory bread pudding with tomato, ham and fried egg on top. The dense bread pudding was balanced out well with the creamy sauce and yolk from the egg resulting in the perfect bite! The thick cut bacon was bomb, as expected and the side order of potatoes comes with a fantastic spicy homemade ketchup, a much more fun version!! The Little Gems lentil salad with a buttermilk dressing was delightful and the asparagus with herbs and hollandaise was another winner. I would say my overall favorite dish was the sausage egg sandwich. Constructed on a toasted english muffin, topped with a thick chunk of slightly spiced sausage, harissa mayo and fried egg, way above average. SO good.
We ended with the carrot-olive oil cake with a tart slightly acidic pistachio cream. A wonderful take on a classic carrot! For chocolate lovers I would recommend the chocolate mousse with cookie crumbles sprinkled with sea salt.
There’s a courtyard patio with several tables with dangly lights that hang overhead, great for a casual summer evening! For tasty food using fresh quality product I highly recommend June for date night, Sunday funday or your own Happy Hour. The prices for each dish are great ranging from $9-$12. The food leaves you satisfied and yearning for your next trip. Can’t wait to go back for dinner! Slow cooked lamb breast with sugar snap peas, yogurt and chilies anyone? And SUCH a fun wine list! My manager/friend goes here every weekend. Simplicity done so right.
