Celebrating a special occasion? Book the whole table
We are Johnny and Julia, a young couple who met while working together in the NYC dining scene. Together we've created WoodEar, an eatery located in our cozy Brooklyn brownstone. Having worked at Michelin-starred Del Posto and former Japanese speakeasy Dinnertable to name a few, Chef Johnny has acquired a plethora of knowledge in being a trained cook. His decision to abandon the traditional restaurant scene was simple: to cook as it is meant to be, sharing with others and while under ones own terms and standards. With Julia's savvy, logistical planning and managerial skills obtained from running several successful pop-ups and bars, they have formed the perfect duo. At WoodEar, we pride ourselves in offering an all-inclusive experience complete with a carefully crafted seasonal dinner, bottomless drinks, the most welcoming of hosts and memorable new friendships.

What to expect at Julia&Johnny's place
Where do I even start?! My experience with these two GEMS was above and beyond what I could have ever imagined it to be. The couple helped me to organize a private bachelorette party and for months and they communicated with me so efficiently and thoughtfully. From the unique menu, to the cozy atmosphere of exposed brick and comfy pillows, to the attention to each TINY detail such as specialized menus & peach ribbons around the flowers...Jules and Johnny seriously exceeded all my expectations. It was no surprise that on the brides special night, she was over the MOON. I HIGHLY recommend experiencing a night with J&J. Whether it is joining in on one of their dinners or reaching out about planning your own...theres nothing like their one of a kind space. Thank you J&J . I can't wait to see what's next! -Nikki
