If you need somewhere to bring your parents in Dumbo, take them to Atrium. They’ll find something they like on the menu, and they’ll be into the grown-up space. Here, you’ll find oysters, charcuterie, some pastas, and proteins like steak, chicken, and branzino. There are brussels sprouts as well, naturally. On weekends, this is also a good place to meet a few friends for a more interesting brunch.
