Black Iris is a casual Middle Eastern spot on the border of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill where people who live in nearby brownstones like to drink mojitos on weeknights. Their new curbside patio has turf and a huge tent that makes getting drinks possible rain or shine. And if you want dinner, try one of their pitas topped with lamb, chicken cutlet, or sundried tomatoes.
