Walker Stern

Battersby, Brooklyn, NY

Two years ago Blue Hill and Gramercy Tavern veterans Joseph Ogrodneck and Walker Stern gave Brooklyn’s dining scene a huge upgrade when they set up shop in a tiny storefront. Today their charming Battersby, which was ranked among America’s best new restaurants by Bon Appétit, continues to be one of the city’s most elusive reservations.
