Opened in 2008, this cozy, but spacious restaurant, bar and live performance space came to be because of necessity. The neighborhood needed a gathering place to hear great music, eat good food, have a drink or just hang out. And Rustik is the perfect place to do it all. The brick walls, long wooden bar, comfy couches and chairs are warmed by a wood burning fireplace in winter. And the tavern’s rear living room—complete with vintage piano and walls lined with 70s and 80s music memorabilia—opens onto an amazing stone patio, affectionately called Rustik Garden. But that's just the beginning. Looking for something to eat? Rustik is proud of its delicious bar favorites like nachos, wings and sliders which shares the menu with more creative dishes like their own blackened salmon, seafood pasta, and a delightfully spicy crab cake. Rustik's brunch menu boasts some of Brooklyn's finest dishes such as chicken and waffles and savory shrimp and grits (served during Sat & Sun brunch only).

A peach tree grows in Brooklyn!

Sit on the back patio under the leafy splendor of a huge peach tree and thriving grape vines.

Happy hour is a steal.

Great entrees. So reasonable (in Brooklyn!).

Order one of every dessert even if you don't have a sweet tooth.

We brunched at Rustik on a SUN afternoon & took advantage of the all-you-can drink mimosas, bellinis & bloody marys. They have a 2.5 hr limit on their tables which was fine w/ our group being that they were fast & efficient in taking the orders & kept our glasses filled. We ordered: shrimp & grits--creamy w/ a cajun seasoning; steak & eggs which came w/ a salad & potatoes--steaks were ordered medium but came back well done (yet very filling); & chicken & waffle--1/2 chicken (filling as well). If you come on SUN, the bar is filled with patrons watching football which lends to the noise level especially if a favorite team is playing. They also have patio dining that we initially reserved until it started raining & we were accommodated indoors
