for making a southern girl like me feel at home at Van Horn, the delicious new southern place at 231 Court Street! First of all, the design is really nice (not too ye olde Brooklyn which is starting to exhaust me) but simple and clean and a tad moody. according to my friend, the owner used to be an architect which makes sense. i have attached some images to give you an idea- favorite features are a muted/ greyed wood wall toward the back, mix of earthy green + blue paints (especially the green bar!), and the sculptural light pendants. order the blp (that p is for pimento cheese, it's divine!), hush puppies, pork or fish sandwich, really anything and you will eat every last bite. what's better than the perfect marriage of amazing food and good design?
