Walk into Orchidea and you will think you walked out of Borough Park and into a five star Manhattan restaurant.
The establishment is decorated with style and bursting with substance. A curtain of silver beads cascade down at the entrance. On the right, is a brick fireplace and on your left, is an authentic sushi bar. The dining room is decorated by the artistic team of Rebecca & Rachel in wenge wood with metallic tones, giving the restaurant a sleek and sophisticated appearance. Beautiful custom curtains provide the option of closing part of the restaurant for private parties. Full length mirrors in the back, round out the scene.
Everything is done with class and quality. Waiters in white gloves welcome you and read off the menu specials with diligence. Every dish is designed with dazzling creativity and presentation. They make their own butter and bread seasoned with homemade herbs. And not seen in most Brooklyn restaurants, Orchidea’s professional staff even cleans the crumbs off your table after every course. It’s those little nuances and touches that have us beaming with pride.
We believe it’s the upscale yet relaxed atmosphere that creates the perfect escape from the busy flow of 13th Avenue. Freshly prepared specials, such as the Avocado Tartare with sundried tomatoes, basil and onions and the light, yet, spicy Mushroom Delight are two great appetizers to start your dining experience. Entrees such as the Chilean Sea Bass, Tuna Steak and Penne Roma are winners among the clientele. The restaurant has a special pastry chef who creates many original and exquisite homemade desserts.
