Faun is an American restaurant with strong Italian roots, an intimate dining room, a solid wood bar, and a lush garden patio. Conceived by owners David Stockwell and Carla Swickerath to be the home setting city dwellers dream about, serving a thoughtfully straightforward menu of handcrafted dishes.
The chef is Brian Leth, whose experience ranges from working on a ranch in Wyoming to a four-year tenure as chef of Vinegar Hill House here in Brooklyn. Hands-down, the focus of Leth's cooking is the excellent seasonal ingredients from which he builds each dish - his techniques always in the service of intensifying and spotlighting their best features.
At Faun, we are committed to doing the good and sustainable things. To us this means locally sourcing raw products whenever possible, and it means buying only from ecologically responsible farmers, ranchers, and fishers.
Speaking of the good things, we respectfully decline tips at Faun. We truly think this makes life easier and better for all involved.
