Since 1979, Brooklynites have been sitting down in one of this Bay Ridge restaurant’s three dining rooms, or on the back deck, to indulge in Greenhouse Cafe’s variety of soups, salads, pastas and meat dishes. Floor-to-ceiling windows surround the rear dining room, giving the restaurant its name. Co-owner John Keegan recommends the roasted, boneless Long Island duckling served with a fruit sauce, which changes daily. The entree is served with fresh-cut vegetables and rice or potatoes. Also popular, according to manager Donald Rodriguez, is the seafood platter — a combination of three fish that change daily, or the fresh lobster dinner — weighing in at one and a quarter pounds. Greenhouse Cafe is open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner and Sundays for brunch and dinner. A “Dining Before Sunset” three-course, $19.95 prix-fixe menu is offered Monday through Saturday, from 11:30 am to 6 pm, as well as a $25 three-course dinner daily and a $25 Sunday brunch with unlimited cocktails. Opens Monday-Thursday, 12:00 pm-11:00 pm; Friday-Saturday, 12:00 pm-12:00 am; Sunday, 12:00 pm-10:00 pm.
