Neighborhood Eats: Burgundy Trout from Brooklyn

April 6, 2012 5:09:39 PM PDT
It's time for a taste of France. In this week's Neighborhood Eats, we say oui oui to fish.

In Carroll Gardens to be precise. It's been open for two years. The name Sue Perette is a play on the small supermarkets in France and Benoit Rouan's grandmothers were both named Sue.

Benoit learned to cook in his mother's hotel and restaurant, and he loves exposing his customers to French cuisine so he changes the menu every month.
