Brooklyn is the world’s capital of warehouses that also happen to have non-warehouse things in them, like a somewhat out-of-place restaurant called Sugarcane. You wouldn’t know it from the outside, but Sugarcane is a giant, swanky restaurant right next to the indoor carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park, serving everything from a “lobster BLT” sushi roll to foie gras fried rice to a roast chicken. Once you’re in, you’ll understand why Sugarcane would probably make more sense in midtown or Miami (where they originally opened). The place is over-decorated to the point where no two light fixtures are the same, but the staff is absurdly nice and if you need a break from walking around, their bar and lounge is good for a drink and an order of sashimi.
