New Garden-Sourced Café Opening At The Brooklyn Botanic Garden

While bringing a picnic to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden has a certain romantic caché, sometimes you just want someone else to do the cooking.

Opening this week in the historic and refurbished Palm House is the Yellow Magnolia Café, a modern, vegetable-focused restaurant overlooking the garden’s lily pool terrace. For those who still want the XX of open air, in-the-park dining, the Yellow Magnolia Canteen is open to guests by the entrance to the Steinhardt Conservatory.

The two new food outposts are named after the BBG’s distinctive yellow-flowered magnolia (whose season is rapidly approaching!) and further embrace the BBG’s commitment to sustainable practices. All of the ingredients will be sourced from local farms and purveyors– some of the produce will even be harvested from the BBG’s own beds. As a result, the dishes offered are entirely seasonal, and are developed in collaboration with BBG’s horticulturalists.
