I have eaten here twice and was suprised both times to find how fresh and pure everything tasted. It is a rare occasion when I bite into a snow pea and say -- Wow, that is a really good snow pea! Or, Where do you buy a chicken this good, this FRENCH? I felt like I was on the farm again, and that is no small accomplishment for a restaurant in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn! The flavor combinations are so instinctive, so wise, so memorable, I found myself lost in contemplation. The chef treats the ingredients deferentially, and when the purity and richness of the ingredients takes center stage, it's heaven. Hibino is not flashy, but it IS the most rewarding, most thought-provoking home-style meal in Brooklyn.
Pros: Fresh ingredients, uncluttered and spacious dining room, fun music
Cons: Can't eat there every day or the employees will think you are crazy
