BK9, a new Caribbean restaurant and bar, specializes in West-Indian inspired fare that reflects the authentic flavors of Haiti, Trinidad and Jamaica that the nine partners grew up enjoying with family and friends. Each partner has deep roots in Brooklyn, met in grade school or college and formed a lasting bond. The partners created their restaurant and bar in homage to their friendship, which always emphasized endless conversation and laughter fueled by great food and drinks.
Chef Christian Ortiz has developed dishes that echo the partners’ backgrounds with a variety of organic and fresh ingredients and authentic spices. The result is Caribbean comfort inspired offerings such as cod fish cassava cakes, coconut citrus ceviche, braised oxtail over risotto and pan-seared crispy snapper.
The relaxed yet stylish atmosphere at BK9 is an excellent match for the cuisine presented.
BK9 is conveniently located in historic Park Slope, steps away from the Barclays Center on Brooklyn’s 5th Avenue. It is a distinct addition to the neighborhood that should not be missed.
