But the MyMoon of my younger years is not the one I visited last week. While the space is still massive, draped with trees and curated with large metal sculptures and purple curtains, the menu has shifted direction from a classic Greek, to Spanish-influenced Mediterranean.
But the two winners of the evening had to be the Mediterranean Octopus with Potatoes, Pimenton, and Arbequina Olive Oil, and the cocktails (we had the French Smash and the Cosmic Kiss). The octopus was perfectly tender, and the potato foam was just the right amount of creaminess, so you did not feel like you were eating octopus chowder. The drinks were both light and breezy, which is just want you want as you sit on MyMoon’s large patio.
Once a boiler room, and now a sprawling restaurant and popular wedding venue, MyMoon represents an important part of North Brooklyn’s history. “We might do a movie night and project films on the wall,” says Ruggero, MyMoon’s manager, “We really want there to be something here for everyone”.
Ruggero has chosen the new menu wisely, and seems to be doing everything with a sense of detailed purpose, which is present in the way the restaurant is decorated, as well as the food it serves.
