FORT GREENE — The G train won't take you to this Fort Greene restaurant.
Tucked away in the Yoyogi Park neighborhood of Tokyo exists a small eatery with a large communal table and homemade granola called Fort Greene.
Owner Makoto Asamoto named his eclectic new restaurant after the neighborhood he once called home, according to Bon Appétit.
"I wanted [this place] to have the same mood I felt in the cafes around Fort Greene," he told the foodie magazine. "My food is mostly French, but the restaurant itself is my interpretation of Brooklyn."
Asamoto lived in Fort Greene for a year and was taken with the artsy scene and intriguing tangle of people.
"There's something about the mix of people and lifestyles," Asamoto told Bon Appétit. "Black and white, rich and poor, high class and low class. I like that mix."
Asamoto's flea market decor — antique typewriters, crates of vinyl and colorful lamps — and offerings — upscale French fare, imported organic wines and fresh-baked bread — all pay tribute to the Brooklyn neighborhood he loves.
