Petra is from the same people behind Sunrise/Sunset, a little cafe in Bushwick with a surprisingly good wine selection. And in terms of wine, it’s the same deal here. You can drink something from Slovenia or a Croatia and eat plate of sabich alongside. The food at Petra is Mediterranean, although it isn’t really traditional. The sabich is deconstructed, and they do a plate of charred broccoli with peanut butter and jelly. We probably wouldn’t eat a full meal here, but it’s a great place to drink wine with a date.
