We're sure there are other things to do in Fort Greene besides eat exceptional food in attractive spaces in good company.

That's just our favorite thing to do in Fort Greene. (If that wasn't already incredibly obvious.)

And so, today we have for you Evelina, a beauty of a Mediterranean-but-also-sort-of-specifically-Italian spot that's now open on DeKalb.

Behind it: the team behind Aurora who clearly know a thing or two about ambiance, a vet-chef from Michelin starred Daniel and Boulud Sud who'll be switching up the menu daily, and a mixologist from Michelin-starred Chelsea Brasserie who went ahead and named all her cocktails after Shakespearean women. 

We'll do the rest of this one slideshow-style. We'll see you in there for some good-looking octopus and whatever else.

Oh, and here's what a typical menu might look like. But, again, they're switching up the menu quite often, so no promises.

Happy Friday.
