  1. With its nice long bar and large sunny windows, The Vanderbilt is the kind of place you want to go to for an afternoon drink. We enjoyed a glass of the Forstreiter Gruner Veltliner 2013 ($9) and the Aizipurua Getariako Txakolina 2015 ($12). They were serving a limited prix fixe menu because of Mother's Day but we did enjoy our plate of cottage fries ($6). The vibe of The Vanderbilt is more upscale neighborhood restaurant with prices to match. But not a bad place to spend an hour or so on a late Sunday afternoon after wandering around the Brooklyn Museum.
  2. Nourish Thai is the sort of handsome neighborhood restaurant that that everyone hopes to live near. Low key for midweek dinner but attractive enough, with wood tables and exposed brick and ferns, lots of ferns, to take guests on the weekend. With reasonable prices and solid Thai cooking to boot. Although we didn't dive into the Secret Grandma Recipe section of the menu, don't expect to find the funk and heat of new breed Thai restaurants (think Baan Thai or Little Serow). Nourish is serving up the classics but a cut or two above your average "Americanized" Thai joint. If we lived in Prospect Heights, I feel like Nourish would easily be on the rotation.
  3. The Branded Saloon is a corner neighborhood bar with a somewhat kitschy Western theme - wagon wheel chandelier, stuffed animals heads mounted on the wall, you get the picture. The small front room has a friendly looking bar and stools along with a handful of booths. The back room hosts live music and other events nightly and the basement has a pool table. A small patio area is out front for a sunny day. The Brussel sprout hash with bacon, potatoes, poached eggs, garlic cilantro hollandaise made for a good brunch dish, the accompanying "white toast" was supermarket quality and had spent maybe 10 seconds near a toaster. Very good Bloody Mary. The beer list skewed local. I'm not sure anyone would go out of their way to go to the Branded Saloon, but it's the sort of neighborhood bar that should be supported.
  4. R&D Foods is a tiny slip of a store, serving up sandwiches, prepared foods, cheese, cured meats, baked goods, and with a frozen meat case (sausages etc.). Shelves have a selection of grocery supplies, condiments, etc., many locally produced. They will also put together picnic baskets. It's a good spot to know about if you are planning an outing in Prospect Park.
  5. Never been, but Chuko gets some positive words from the NY Times ... and anything from Jamison Blankenship has to be noteworthy, right?
  6. Dean Street is the friendly and charming corner neighborhood restaurant that other cities do so well, and DC does not. Walking into the bar room, taking a seat at a round corner table awash with morning sunlight, you want to belong here, to have the staff know your name. You can just envision coming in mid-week, having a beer at the bar, chatting with the bartender, and maybe watching some of the game on TV. If every customer was within a 6 or 7 block walk, I wouldn't be surprised. Now let's not get overblown, the food was good but not great. But one doesn't really care. It's about being in the neighborhood. The menu skews southern/New Orleans: gumbo, shrimp & grits, and lots of biscuits. Crawfish, Andouille Sausage, Cream Cheese Omelet with Home Fries (they could work on their home fries) was a tasty mess. The sort of thing a hangover cries out for. The Bloody Mary was top notch, also hangover worthy. The biscuits topped with poached eggs and mushroom gravy was perhaps too rich, and the sweet potato hash topped with eggs was enjoyed by the vegetarian contingent. If Dean Street was a couple blocks from my apartment, it would be my local.
  7. If you find yourself near Prospect Park or in the Prospect Heights neighborhood, make sure to stop in at Ample Hills Creamery. Handcrafted in-house ice cream with 24 rotating seasonal flavors. Make sure you sample the Salted Crack Caramel, the Peanut Butter 4 President for lovers of peanut butter (obviously), and sorbet fans should try the Lemon Sky (lemon-ginger). It's really the kind of ice cream shop we would all love to have in our neighborhoods!
  8. Flatbush Farm is the sort of restaurant you walk into and immediately want to, hope to, love. A lovely restaurant design, with a handsome long bar, huge vases of wintery tree branches, a happening bistro vibe, and a manifesto to take "farm-to-table" seriously - the place oozes beloved local institution. Unfortunately, Saturday brunch was lackluster. The farmer's breakfast featured a mealy potato hash which was not a hash of any kind but just badly cooked potatoes; the thick cut bacon had clearly been cooked hours ago and had that old, dry, sitting around in a sheet pan look, parched bacon is no bacon at all. The two over easy eggs were fine. White beans with collards and a poached egg was a fine hearty bowl, but rather one note and bland. Tofu, as a general rule, should never be scrambled. But the side dish of braised kale...the kale was delightful. Flatbush Farm 76 Saint Marks Avenue Brooklyn
