Black Swan – Bed Stuy’s wonderful surprise

G train to Bedford-Nostrand Ave station
Black Swan offers something great every single day of the week. It’s a great place for all beer lovers, sports lovers, and lovers of really good food. Black Swan offers about 10 or so beers on tap, and they offer a large selection of bottled beers. Our first visit to this BedStuy gastropub was on a breezy and very warm summer afternoon. Their menu selection offers a delectable and indulgent looking selection. We kept it safe and first enjoyed their Fried Calamari appetizer and the Blackened Salmon BLT. Since then, we’ve tried a number of other menu selections including their Buffalo Wings and also the Curry Chicken Salad sandwich served with delicious crispy fries. The decor at Black Swan is tasteful and filled with natural dark wood. Outdoor seating is available. Large televisions are at the bar for sports viewing. The brunch menu offers a little more than typical omelets and pancakes. Happy hour is offered daily 11:30-8pm. Late night kitchen available Thursday – Sunday.
If you like bloody marys, don’t miss theirs. It’s topped with……wait for it…………………shrimp, bacon, and cheese on a skewer! Oh yeah! They’re not kiddin’ around. Stop in for brunch, lunch or dinner.

Good ($30 – $60 pp) While you can certainly spend $30 or less and have a great time, a little more will get you a couple of extra drinks, and they are good!
