Honey Badger is an American avant-garde restaurant with a secret undisclosed menu that changes daily.

HB represents intimacy with nature, the environment, and ourselves. The open kitchen is the stage where the chef prepares every dish live. Every Chalet is treated as the Chef’s Table.

HB is a wild-to-table eatery, sourcing from a network of foragers extending from Maine through PA, with a keen focus on sustainable harvesting and the northeast as terroir.

We work with five sustainable local farms as well as our bio-dynamic one. We take great pride in using local organic produce.

Our in-house methods of baking, pickling, smoking, braising, and fermenting. We aim to showcase the best our local farmers and foragers have to offer.

HB is currently offering a Summer Tasting “Omakase” Menu incorporating all of our limited exclusive foraged ingredients and wild game. Price is $195 per person.

    The meal was a great overall experience but a little pricey considering the amount of food we got. Maybe the time of year was bad but I saw others got lobster and scallops and overall bigger portions than what I got. The wife and husband definitely know what they are doing and are super nice. My girlfriend LOVED it, which is all that really matters but I left still very much hungry and had to get more food after spending 700 bucks on dinner.

    Great, unique tasting menu. I tried many new ingredients like local nuts and berries. It’s a fine dining experience in a casual environment, very cute outdoor seating tents. Dinner takes a little over two hours and there is an optional drink pairing.

    It was an amazing food journey and we were able to try dishes and taste flavours that were unusual and delicious. A great deal of effort and thought goes into the menu - and it is clearly a passion of the owners.

    A truly unique experience. I loved this place so much that I felt compelled to write friends the next day to make sure they knew about it. It is obvious that a lot of thought and care goes into the creation of the menu.

    This had to be one of the most eye opening experiences in food that I’ve had in a long time. Run by a family, husband, wife and their young daughter, you can feel a part of their passion and struggles, and it makes dinner all that more meaningful. The ambiance in the tents were perfect, with a little record store on the same block, making for a magic moment. The food - I can’t say enough about. If you’ve ever been to Aska, underneath the Williamsburg bridge, it’s that level of service, speciality, thought, high concept, and for a reasonable price (still some pennies tho). There really, truly is nothing like this in the all of the city. You have to come now before it’s too late or blows up to big.

    The food was spectacular, there is no dispute there. And our waiter, bless him, made a huge effort and kept a straight face as he reverently described the backstory of every ingredient. But those descriptions were fetish-y at best and truly comical at worst. It was like being in a Portlandia skit. Potatoes were “un-sprayed”, duck wasn’t duck but “water fowl.” Please, all who read this, google Brooklyn Bar Menu Generator, a satirical site and perfect reflection of Honey Badger.

    Very unique experience! Exotic sea food and seaweeds we never heard of. Snail caviar, trout caviar and the pasta With fresh truffles was definitely My favorite. I wonder how we didn’t know about this unique little place. Definitely coming back!

    Inventive, unique, delicious, and OHMYGOD expensive. Went for Valentine's day, and found out after sitting down (when I couldn't really reconsider) that the meal was $222/person. I expected to spend a lot, it was Valentine's Day. But not THIS much. We each did the $60 wine pairing, and with tip it came to $753. If the total was $350, I'd rate it a 5.

    First, if you do go - know it is cash only. The menu is only a tasting menu, no menu selections available. We were served 5 courses and although they said they foraged for the ingredients, I would like to know where they foraged the salt from. The dominating salt flavor overtook every course. Our water glasses were repeatedly empty because of this and took a long time to be refilled. The service model was difficult to do well because all of the tables were served at the same time. No table was served until we walked in, and we were the last table to be seated. Who knows how long they were all sitting there! Any dish that was supposed to be hot was lukewarm at best. We watched our pasta dish be prepared with noodles cooking in a hot water kettle. We asked repeatedly for the music to be turned down, and after it was turned down, it was still slightly bothersome. We were also sat between the door and this weird makeshift fireplace. It emanated heat, which was nice, but was placed on a bale of hay which seems like quite the fire hazard. The “kitchen” was visible from our table and we watched every course be prepared, but an odd addition was a child hanging out in the corner while the food was prepared. The menus were confusing. They were small slips of paper, and had they gotten too close to this heat source probably could have ignited the bale of hay, and the wine list had no details except for the region and country with extraordinarily high prices for a bottle. The food menu listed each course with one ingredient and we had to ask for explanation. When the food was then served, the ingredients changed or some were left out in explanation. Overall we sat in the restaurant for 2.5 hours for 5 courses, which after reading other reviews is a short amount of time. While this concept could work in a restaurant, I recommend looking elsewhere. The execution and product is poor and we will not be returning, after spending $250 for 3 people without drinks!
