Restaurateur Shepard Ross and chef Jeff Axline reunite to bring a bit of Brooklyn to Houston with their newest venture. Brooklyn Athletic Club is part outdoor game haven, part gourmet restaurant, and for all its seemingly incongruous attributes, it works — primarily because Axline's menu of upscale Americana offerings has something for everyone. The Montrose restaurant focuses on seasonal ingredients and comfort food for the epicure. With standout dishes like "porkobuco" and sweet potato gnocchi, as well as three bocce ball courts and an outdoor beer bar, Brooklyn Athletic Club can be welcoming to children, gourmands and everyone in between who appreciates an engaging and delicious dining experience.
