our story

Brassica Kitchen + Café was founded by the Whisk pop-up team, bringing creative and comfortable cuisine to Forest Hills.

By day we are Brassica Cafe, serving good coffee, made from scratch pastries & sandwiches.

Evenings Tuesday-Saturday we are Brassica Kitchen, fermentation forward food & drink with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. We are a passionate team obsessed with exploring the unknown and sharing the results. Our hospitality is casual, friendly, and honest. Come see us, it might just be your thing.

events + catering

We host events such as $1 Oysters every Wednesday night and regular pop-up dinners from local chefs + organizations. 

We can also host events at our restaurant and cater locally! For more information, inquire below.


3% Admin Fee

Like many restaurants struggling to balance wages for Front of House (FOH) and Back of House (BOH or Kitchen) staff, Brassica has adopted a 3% Hospitality Administration Fee to supplement BOH wages and benefits.  

We thank you for the opportunity to allow us to explain our goals, transparently and honestly. We believe in taking care of and sharing in our local community — and the first stop is within our own borders.
