About Meadowsweet:

Meadowsweet is a fine dining restaurant in Williamsburg that opened in the summer of 2014 by husband and wife team Polo Dobkin and Stephanie Lempert. At Meadowsweet, Chef Dobkin showcases a thoughtful, modern American menu in the bright and airy space. Lempert oversees the wine list and seasonal cocktail program, which draws from the restaurant¹s lush indoor mezzanine herb garden. Polo and Stephanie see Meadowsweet as an extension of their home. They both enjoy good food, friendly service and a comfortable atmosphere to dine in and that is exactly what they want their guests to experience when visiting Meadowsweet. When they are not at Meadowsweet you will find them upstate at Meadowsweet Farm with their daughter and son where they grow amazing vegetables that are served at the restaurant.
