OuR OVEN

If your kitchen is the heart of your home then, at The Runner, our wood burning oven is the heart of ours. 

We think The Runner should be the kind of place where the history and diversity of our neighborhood is celebrated in local flavors, Brooklyn ambience and community interaction. It’s why we’re serving food and drinks inspired by American comfort enhanced by the use of a natural wood fired oven.

From the oven

From flatbreads to fish, our wood fired oven brings you the best of what seasonal cooking  has to offer for brunch, lunch, dinner and even happy hour. 

Family style

Say goodbye to coursed meals - eat together and share with your family as dishes are ready, the way nature intended. 

INSPIRATION 

Our dishes are inspired by Clinton Hill and the diversity of our neighborhood and are as unique and delicious as the people here.

OUR FOOD


THE RUNNER

by Walt Witman 

On a flat road runs the well-train'd runner,
He is lean and sinewy with muscular legs,
He is thinly clothed, he leans forward as he runs,
With lightly closed fists and arms partially rais'd.
 

Walt Whitman wrote this simple but impactful poem while living around the block on Ryerson Street. It served as a metaphor and homage to the Industrial Revolution and growth happening in America. 

Whitman saw Clinton Hill as a place to escape the commotion of city life. We share his opinion of our neighborhood, too. We choose The Runner for our name to celebrate the very same growth and progress happening on Myrtle Avenue, and Clinton Hill, that Whitman spoke of.

We think The Runner should be the kind of place where the history and diversity of our neighborhood is celebrated in local flavors, Brooklyn ambience and community interaction. It’s why we’re serving food and drinks inspired by American comfort, and enhanced by the use of a natural wood fired oven. That’s what we mean by “an American Heritage restaurant.”

Come see for yourself.
