About

 

To founders David Stockwell and Carla Swickerath, Faun is an extended invitation to their beloved Brooklyn neighborhood to come as you are and gather around excellent food, drink, and conversation.  Both architects, David and Carla brought an uncommonly idyllic garden setting and candlelit atmosphere to Prospect Heights in 2016.  The staff – expertly led by Chef Luciano Torres and General Manager Emma Myers – has since become family, along with the ever-growing community of guests who we are so thankful to count as friends.

"This Prospect Heights haven is one that should be on everyone's radar. Adorned with cool marble surfaces and a flaming open kitchen, it is welcoming, intimate, and tranquil."

2021 MICHELIN GUIDE

"Faun; a neighborhood charmer, to be sure, but this airy, polished storefront with a long bar and seating in a lushly planted garden may well attract a wider audience..."

FLORENCE FABRICANT  |  THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Faun menu changes are frequent, but the one constant that you can rely on are the pastas. They're always creative and range from very good to "Gimme the Light..."

CHRIS STANG  |  THE INFATUATION

"And then this new restaurant just opened called Faun, and I'm crazy about it. The flavors are simple, really small menu, but everything on it is delicious."

MELISSA CLARK  |  EDIBLE BROOKLYN

"...once Faun really gets on Manhattanites' finely tuned radars, it'll be an uphill battle scoring a seat..."
