With views of Brooklyn skyline, Kimoto Rooftop Beer Garden opened in September atop the Aloft New York Brooklyn hotel. Designed with a clean and modern aesthetic, the space features blond wood tables, stools, and curving benches as well as landscaping that combines some 100 species of plants. The menu from chef Brian Tsao features a mix of Asian and American comfort foods such as the Spam sushi dog—a Spam “hot dog” rolled in sushi rice and nori—and Shibuya disco fries topped with beef brisket, jalapeño, daikon chili, garlic sour cream, and sriracha. The beer list features of 20 craft brews that are either local, Asian, or made with Asian ingredients. The venue has 110 seats on the outdoor terrace and 115 seats indoors, including in a private dining room that seats 30 and adjoins a zen rock garden.
