Jason Denton Fits BETTO into Brooklyn

Jason Denton has done it again - creating a dining experience where form and content pointedly mirror the location and crowd. His established Italian-centric successes - Inoteca Liquori, CafĂ© Ino, Corsino Cantina, Inoteca Cucina, and Indie Food and Wine - all harbor a style designed to match their Manhattan neighborhoods. This time it’s the new Betto, his first Brooklyn restaurant in the artsy heart of Williamsburg - and the formula is no different. Rustic wooden block tables, refurbished school-house chairs and farmhouse decor charmingly recall the Brooklyn Flea. Dressed up with low candle light and perfectly ambient indie-folk-rock tunes, Betto smartly speaks this creative crowd’s language...
