Title: Brooklyn Restaurants
Post by: ayman on September 15, 2013, 05:09:42 PM
Since I've seen a few requests for this thread the last few days, I thought I would try to compile and wiki it.
I'm not Posting the different hashgachos and only really considering restaurants/eateries in Flatbush/Boro park.
Others can add other areas.

How do we add to the list? Like Fleishigs

Here's my quick 2 cents:
Cafe Hadar- Ave N
    Always good food, nice staff. I've been there numerous times. The only complaint is that recently you have to wait a lot longer for your food and the waiters don't know everything about the menu - I guess new staff

Bennys Pizza- Ave J
Bennys Pizza- Ave M
   Very good food. Great soups, a lot of different types of pizza, always fresh and delicious. Only cash!
Cafe K- Ave K
   OK. Do they take credit cards yet?
Spoons- Ave J
    So so. Got my order wrong a couple of times
Bagels n Greens- Coney Island Ave
     Very good and expensive
Tea for Two- Nostrand Ave
      Delicious food. Expensive, but it's an expensive restaurant. Noise level is always high for some reason
Cafe Renaissance- Kings Highway
   Good food but I have a big beef with them (not the food beef). They won't improvise at all. If it says potato and sour cream, that's all you're gonna get, no changes.
Cafe Venezia- Coney Island Ave
   Same owner, same review as Café Renaissance

Sub Express is a great place. It's on 13th ave right near Shomer Shabbos (53rd Street). Real clean, quick, and delicious food, with a rather extensive menu. My personal favorite is a steak sub called the "giant papa". It's grilled steak slices topped
with fried onions in a delicious honey bbq sauce & russian dressing. The unique thing about this place is that they have a large variety of food too, american, mexican, chinese, israeli, and more! Check out their menu at http://subexpressny.com/

I would like to add a poll here "which restaurants would you recommend?" as the question and the options would be each restaurant. Each member getting to vote 5/10/15/25? times. It would be a really long list but would be doable. We could start out w all or most of the restaurants and then remove the ones that do not receive any votes. Any thoughts to this?

I actually found crisp very good. We had their food many times. What's wrong with windows? You could even look out! When they had soup (I think only winter), it was great. Food very good too. We took out a number of times as well but things like fries can become soggy. Minuses - not that many tables, not the cleanest place (as far as tables and chairs) and those chairs are very uncomfortable.

Update on Hadar. First off, the food is still good. The service, however, is getting worse and worse every time I go there that I think I'll stay away at this point. I was there with my wife, some kids, some grandchildren for lunch. We made our order. Took forever and they brought it out piecemeal (which to me is a -100 for a restaurant) so that when my daughter finished her food (or almost) someone elses meal came out. Then, after everything, my wife said "Where's my salad?" That should have been easy and first. He says we didn't order it. The entire group heard the order. By the time he had it made we just took it home. My daughter asked for a piece of cake for my son's birthday, which they finally gave. Then when I went to pay, the owner made sure to tack on another $5. After all we went through. It's not the money. It's just the treatment. I guess they don't care because they're full. Anyway, just wanted to update.

Very good restaurant with large portions, decent prices and good service. It's usually pretty crowded so it can be tough to get in during busy times (No reservations). Would recommend the soups, salads and sandwiches (pastas are nothing to write home about). They also have good desserts and hot drinks. Enjoy!

We paid in the 80's (tax and tip included) for two steaks. They were very good. I had a skirt steak and my wife had a butterfly's steak. I don't think A la Carte comes close in price. Here it's definitely less.

Tried out Cafe K's new meat restaurant Gourmet K @ 1267 Coney Island Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11230.

I didn't go for the decor of the place- has a bit of unfinished feel. Not an unfinished look, which I happen to like. But rather I feel like the roof and walls (think bamboo ceiling, exposed brick and heavy red and gold brocade) don't really come together so pleasantly... The noise level was very high.

The food was pretty good. Best part of my meal was the coconut dream appetizer- tender, soft and moist chicken strips on skewers, grilled and dipped into a coconut sauce with hot and sweet undertones. The taste was subtle and well balanced.

Then corn soup which comes with a bit of avocado salad floating in it as a garnish. The soup was nothing special, and I thought the guacamole was a bit too lemony and contrasted to heavily with the sweetness of the soup.

Mon Amour salad was very nice- endives, peaches, and walnuts in a balasamic dressing. Although, I thought the dressing was a bit too strong and vinegary for such delicate flavors- but still it was very good.

Main was cornish hen with fig couscous. The vegetables that were cooked with the hen were delicious, mini bulb onion, carrot and I think celery. The chicken was pretty nice too, soft and tender- although the whole little chicken on a plate in front of me did weird me out. I was a bit disappointed that the fig couscous used dried figs, as fresh are so much more flavorful. But it was still very good.

Dessert was peanut butter mousse (I think it's the same as the one they serve at Cafe K.) which was good, and an hot apple tart, comes with a scoop of ice cream, and surrounded by fresh strawberry slices. I liked the apple tart quite a bit, but it was too sweet and I couldn't finish it.

What I found strange is that the waiters, although quite polite, never once asked us how the meal was.

All in all, it was a quite nice experience.

Just went to gourmet k. Had the meet me appetizer was very good. Had the hanger steak which wasn't great. And the chicken with mushrooms which is basically a chicken Marsala and that was very good. For dessert had the tiramisu and that was not bad. I would recommend it but would rather go to any restaurant in manhattan for same price.

Usually people spend more when they want to "go out" and not just for a meal. if you want a night out, going around the corner doesn't cut it for a lot of people. Going into the city adds to the experience.

I hear. But with all that, there are lots of places in Manhattan that aren't worth the extra spend. If you are going for the a "night out" I would either go really cheap or really high-end. The in between places in Manhattan are too expensive to be worth it.

true. but a middle of the road place like wolf and lamb might be a good option to catch dinner after a day in the city, not necessarily as a destination by itself.

true. but a middle of the road place like wolf and lamb might be a good option to catch dinner after a day in the city, not necessarily as a destination by itself.

I disagree, I had dinner at Wolf & Lamb in the city.

For a $150 meal that wasn't worth $150, I would've been happier going to J2 for $30.

Update on T-Fusion, went there tonite.
Started with a couple of drinks - the fusion martini - out of site and the pink cheesecake (yes, it tasted like cheesecake) - good, not out of site
Appetizers We both had the Chicken Crisps, as advertised in DD forums. Very good, with the hot mayonnaise as well. It didn't knock us off our feet, but was excellent.
Mains - We both had (boring people we are) the special which was a 8 oz fillet minion (not the place you daven). I asked for it butterflied and my wife asked for it medium to well done. My wife's came rare and had to be returned. Mine didn't seem butterflied, was mostly well done until the center that was red. Came with fries. Not 100% sure why it's so different then the 12 oz one for about the same price. When they asked for feedback, we gave it to them. Wouldn't if they didn't ask. For dessert we each had a drink called the milky way, excellent. Then the chocolate cake with ice cream on top. It was good, but my wife a better one by far.
Price with 18% gratuity = 200.46
Overall, very good meal, quiet, but there were only a few people there, nice looking place, nice presentations of the meals, friendly staff. They need to work on getting it right based on the customers request.

Because I'm strange and only like well done steaks. Last time I was there they butterflied it and made it all well done throughout and it was heaven. I know most chefs hate making a steak well done. I go through this all the time.

to request well done is bad enough, to request that the chef mutilate the steak is a whole different league. im surprised any chef fulfilled your request

I found that if they're really good at it the steak comes out great (for my taste of course). They always do a good job of it at T-Fusion and I got a great one at Wolf and Lamb as well. In fact, one of those two places are the ones that introduced me to butterflying. In any event, the whole issue is that the chef doesn't want to be embarrassed by producing a dry tasteless steak. Which is not what happens when I get it in this fashion. I knew I'd open a can of worms with my burnt steak requests. But, heh! That's how I like it.

AVOID:
Kale- might have been called something like sautéed greens
Creme Brûlée- was underdone and soupy

Rest of the food was pretty good but the service was DISASTROUS and that might be an understatement.

The sautéed kale, which should tops 10 minutes to make from start to finish took over an hour to arrive- our waiter simply forgot to order it! We had to remind him twice. Then the checks- we asked them to split it and they charged the wrong amounts 3 times. Including once charging us the next table's order.

Let us know how it went, I'm going there soon
Went last night. We did not have the Delmonico steak. We started with a Charcuterie Board which had a lot of different meats and some chopped liver. Very good. My wife then had a Pan Seared Chicken Marsala which she liked very much. Remember that I'm the nut job that only likes well done steak. I had the Filet Mignon, butterflied, and well done. It was actually still juicy and delicious. I happen to like a good sherbert, so I had three flavors, all very good. We had two drinks, a Milkey Way and another sweet one, don't remember the name.
The big issue was noise. We went upstairs because we figured it'll be quieter. Wrong! The table next to us was so noisy that we couldn't hear ourselves speak. Loud, laughter and just plain annoying. We enjoyed the meal but the ambience stunk. The whole place was quite noisy. They must of made a lot of money having so many people, but my birthday dinner would have been much more enjoyable somewhere else. Wolf and Lamb had no reservations for us, but I never had this kind of crazy noise when I ate there.
I don't know how to put in a picture or I would show you our drinks.
All of the above with the included tip (was actually a nice waiter) was 170

Any other recommendations in BP or even in FB but only if very close to BP (within 10 min to BP center) ?

Another recommendation we got was El Gaucho?

Thanks
Title: Re: Brooklyn Restaurants
Post by: Mikeoracle on June 24, 2014, 11:15:16 AM
We ended up going to "The Loft" and we REALLY enjoyed the experience. Here is a quick review;

We were 7 people. I thought the ambiance was great, service was very good as well. We were seated quickly, knowledgeable and friendly waiter took our orders as soon as we were ready and overall felt we got just the right amount of attention while not too overbearing.

We ordered;
Appetizers-
Pulled Beef sliders x2 - These were very good, enjoyed all around 4.5*
Duck Gnocchi x2 - These were just ok, nothing major (especially when comparing to MB) 3*
Crispy Beef x2 - These were exceptional, Highly recommended! 5*
"Bomb Shell" Sushi Roll - VERY VERY good! Recommended as well! 5*

Main-
Braised Short ribs (x2) - Very good, (I split a portion which was just enough since it is heavy) 4.5*
Delmonico (x2) - I really loved this and highly recommend 5*
Extra sides of fries (reg and Sweet potato)
Fettuccine appetizer served as a main - this was just ok.

We also had some cocktails, Pina colada and Strawberry Daiquiris which were good.
We skipped dessert because we simply were too full to eat anything else and we were also in a bit of a rush. We did hear that the Napoleon's are supposed to be great.


Total bill for 7 people including 20% gratuity was ~$450 which I consider pretty decent for what we got.

Overall I would highly recommend "The Loft"

Beef cheek pizza.

This was nearly as good cold the next morning. And that's a compliment.

Ratings on dishes:

Fries were very good, though far from the best FRIES I've had. The dips, the ketchup and the aioli, made the dish.

Kale salad was interesting, but my rule of thumb is "would I order it again" and I'd answer no.

Pastrami rib was also interesting  (who knew you could get pastrami on a rib??), had good flavor, but again, the answer would be no.

BLT was the star of the show. Finger lickin' good.

Beef cheek pizza was a second to the BLT. Great interesting taste that, as I mentioned above, held up till the follow morning.

Had the creme dessert, but doesn't hold a candle to the hot peanut butter chocolate cake at Rare in Miami, but wasn't disappointing per se.

TLDR? Get fries, BLT, and beef cheek pizza and call it a day.

I don't know about the "best" but up there--off the top of my head--would be Chops in Miami, garlic fries from Schnitzel+ in Teaneck, and a couple other places I'm forgetting.
Title: Re: Brooklyn Restaurants
Post by: Dan on July 06, 2014, 12:52:33 AM
Tierra Sur, Mikes Bistro, and Basil have outstanding fries.

Pardes fries are very good, but as AJK said it's the dips that elevate them to the next league.

BLT is really awesome.

This was nearly as good cold the next morning. And that's a compliment.

Ratings on dishes:

Fries were very good, though far from the best FRIES I've had. The dips, the ketchup and the aioli, made the dish.

Kale salad was interesting, but my rule of thumb is "would I order it again" and I'd answer no.

Pastrami rib was also interesting  (who knew you could get pastrami on a rib??), had good flavor, but again, the answer would be no.

BLT was the star of the show. Finger lickin' good.

Beef cheek pizza was a second to the BLT. Great interesting taste that, as I mentioned above, held up till the follow morning.

Had the creme dessert, but doesn't hold a candle to the hot peanut butter chocolate cake at Rare in Miami, but wasn't disappointing per se.

TLDR? Get fries, BLT, and beef cheek pizza and call it a day.
Ha my exact recommendations.

Awww... those are the boring part of the menu. Have you tried the pea soup? Incredibly tasty as well as beautiful, they prepare in front of you (http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/07/07/pysysy3a.jpg)

Or the Shisoto poppers, one the most unique dishes I've had there.

And Pardes is precisely the place where you don't look for something you'd order again. It's about experiencing something new and unique. Something that surprises your tastebuds...

Okay, here's an updated review of T Fusion. We did a "cheapie" meal one day and it was very good. Not too much to describe because we only had two items, but they were both delicious. Oh yeah, and we both had soup. Chicken soup - absolutely excellent! The cheap mains we had - my wife had the Caeser salad with beef - she loved it. I had the Pulled Brisket Sandwich - also an excellent choice. Now to tonites dinner. We went with our kids (married couple). We started with the Charcuterie Board and the Crisp Sweet Breads. Nice variety and delicious. The liver was out of site. Too little! I don't eat sweetbreads but the others liked them very much. For mains my married couple had the Delmonico - nothing to talk about. It's always been the choice recommendation. My wife had the Spencer steak and loved it. I'm the guy that only likes well done, if you remember. Well, this time I didn't have to butterfly anything. I went with the waiters choice of the lean flat iron steak, well done. It was actually well done AND juicy. He knew exactly what I liked. The challot and bernaise sauces were a great compliment as well. They also make great fries. We also had drinks. I had the best strawberry daiquiri I ever had. My daughter had the Milkey Way. I don't even know the names of the others, but all excellent drinks. And this time the place wasn't noisy. Very enjoyable, excellent staff, beautiful place, and they aim to please. Just keep in mind it's expensive. If you want to spend the money, go there.

+1,000,000 I love T fusion, and being sort of a helpless foodie I frequent that place a little to often. Besides amazing dishes they have a wonderful bar. Next time you go you should try the Ruby sky (cocktail), the owner's son came up with the recipe and I have been addicted ever since. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed.

It just so happens to be that I was there last week and had the chicken crisps and was slightly disappointed. It seemed as though they used a lesser quality chicken (based on taste and finding a bone or 2). I hope it was just a one time fluke.

Instead of driving to Ave J in Brooklyn for some tasty chicken, I should just make a quick run to Kansas City, Missouri.

Thanks for the tip, Dan! 🍗😭

Although I cant say I know what billboard youre referring to, it could be that Cleveland did at one time want to rename the Series.

The problem is that the last time the Indians won, hieroglyphics were still the norm and those records were all lost when Moses took us out of Egypt.

End of an era: The last KD has closed...  :'(
End of an era, indeed. KD was part of the culture of the NY kosher scene for decades. Be it BP, Flatbush or NYC. Food was predictably good. Their burgers had that taste, either you loved them or it wasn't your style, but they were consistent. As I life-long Brooklyn boy, I cannot begin to describe the horror stories I've had over the years with numerous other fast food joints in BK etc., either understaffed, raw, screwed up order, you name it. I'm sure KD had their issues as well, but somehow they seemed effortless with their operation, you knew what you were getting, and you usually were satisfied with it.

After all, how many restaurants all over the country have copied KD's template as far as service, menu etc. I mean there is only one original SINO steak, and that was at KD.

You will be missed!

For an appetizer, I got spring rolls. It was great, full of meat and very flavorful. For the entrée, I ordered a pepper crust fillet with mashed potatoes. I can honestly say this was from the best steaks I have ever had (yes, better then La Marias’s pepper crusted steak). It was grilled to perfection! Over all I would rate this place 5/5. From food to service, this was a great dining experience. Would definitely recommend!

My biggest issue with Shnitzel places as a whole is that they don't crunch the bread. Thats make it or break it for me. The only one that does a good job at this is Schnitzi, but I feel like I'm pulling teeth in order for them to stick the bread in the oven for another 10 minutes to crunch.

Does Boeuf and Bun's burger not look exactly like the Breakfast Burger?

Post by: AJK on February 05, 2015, 07:14:58 PM
Had a chance to visit the Loft, a relatively new kosher restaurant in Boropark. And, boy, was I happy I did.

Located in the dredges of Boropark, a city not known for its aesthetic beauty, walking in was like an oasis in the dessert.  Set in a nice ambiance, the place is warm, with a pretty waterfall in the background.

(I apologize in advance for the poor photos.)

(http://i.gyazo.com/e3a76ffe4b019a45ef1954e20dcc5141.png)

We started off with four appetizers:

The shredded beef, duck tacos, the lollypop chicken, and a Godzilla roll.  While all the appetizers were solid, the star of the show was the lollypop chicken which was phenomenal.  At only $10, the flavors were truly unique: it started off with a sweet, sugary mango and ended with a kick of jalapeno. Really unique and a must get item.

If you're gonna skip one, I'd skip the duck tacos, which actually were not on the menu, but were less inspired, and despite the apparent ingredients weren't as flavorful as I would have expected.  The shredded beef, made famous AFAIK by Estihana, was a completely different texture (not stringy, but three medium sized chunks) and definitely worth the $12 price tag. A note on the sushi: Almost shockingly, the sushi is, given what the establishment is going for, is woefully underpriced to the benefit of it's patrons. Their premium rolls were all $12 or less.  Considering the competition where most rolls are $18+, with some rising to near $30, the Loft's sushi is a steal... and quite good, to boot.

Godzilla Roll

For my main, I couldn't help myself from ordering the pepper steak ($44) and here, too, I was pleasantly surprised. While a bit more peppery than its Le Marais counterpart, I found that to be a good thing, and otherwise could hold it's own against the LM cousin. Not to mention, the steak was cooked perfectly, just slightly rarer than medium.

The fries? Well, they need some work.

(http://i.gyazo.com/cc2706d710beb6a3a63e0fad5ea6e300.png)

(http://i.gyazo.com/fc678c67c5f4cf6cbeee2dbec63d584a.png)
Pepper steak

My friend got the cajun steak ($36), which as you might imagine tasted straight out of New Orleans and has a nice bang to it. I'll definitely give it a whirl next time I go if I can overcome my urge not to again go down pepper steak road.

For dessert, we had this, which had some crazy name, which I can't recall.  Those familiar with Shallot's Strawberry Shortcake may see a resemblance, but unfortunately this isn't in that league.  Don't get me wrong, it was something I'd order again, but given the resemblance, my expectations were a bit too high.

(http://i.gyazo.com/6ac3cfea9fd75f35c1bae3d90f83f8c5.png)

All in all, I'd rank the Loft pretty darn high, but it loses a few points for being in Boropark (which isn't as central as NYC), but gains those points right back considering the reasonableness of the price of sushi and the appetizers (which wouldn't be as reasonable if it were NYC).

Four appetizers, two steaks, and a dessert, with tax and tip, came out to be $85 p/p.  Pretty economical for the type of restaurant it is.

Definitely give it a shot.

Title: Re: Brooklyn Restaurants
Post by: TimT on April 16, 2015, 04:30:23 PM
Here are 2 reviews from awhile back
Had an incredible dining experience at The Loft last week. Made a reservation for 5 at 10pm and was promptly seated when we arrived. A waiter came to our table to take our coats for us. For an appetizer, I got spring rolls. It was great, full of meat and very flavorful. For the entrée, I ordered a pepper crust fillet with mashed potatoes. I can honestly say this was from the best steaks I have ever had (yes, better then La Marias’s pepper crusted steak). It was grilled to perfection! Over all I would rate this place 5/5. From food to service, this was a great dining experience. Would definitely recommend!
We ended up going to "The Loft" and we REALLY enjoyed the experience. Here is a quick review;

We were 7 people. I thought the ambiance was great, service was very good as well. We were seated quickly, knowledgeable and friendly waiter took our orders as soon as we were ready and overall felt we got just the right amount of attention while not too overbearing.

We ordered;
Appetizers-
Pulled Beef sliders x2 - These were very good, enjoyed all around 4.5*
Duck Gnocchi x2 - These were just ok, nothing major (especially when comparing to MB) 3*
Crispy Beef x2 - These were exceptional, Highly recommended! 5*
"Bomb Shell" Sushi Roll - VERY VERY good! Recommended as well! 5*

Main-
Braised Short ribs (x2) - Very good, (I split a portion which was just enough since it is heavy) 4.5*
Delmonico (x2) - I really loved this and highly recommend 5*
Extra sides of fries (reg and Sweet potato)
Fettuccine appetizer served as a main - this was just ok.

We also had some cocktails, Pina colada and Strawberry Daiquiris which were good.
We skipped dessert because we simply were too full to eat anything else and we were also in a bit of a rush. We did hear that the Napoleon's are supposed to be great.


Total bill for 7 people including 20% gratuity was ~$450 which I consider pretty decent for what we got.

Overall I would highly recommend "The Loft"

Don't remember all the rest. Skipped dessert, except my daughter but don't remember which. Everything was excellent, staff pleasant to deal with, great ambience, and very expensive. I don't want you to think we go there every week. My kids came into NY and took us out.

Post by: E-MAN on April 17, 2015, 09:34:15 AM
As mentioned previously went to The Loft for dinner last night. I must say all the food was excellent and nobody left hungry. The desserts were ok, nothing special.
Since we all got there at different times it took a while for a waiter to finally come over, but once he did he was very helpful and the service was great. The owner and manager each came over at different times to see how everything was and to schmooze a bit, which was annoying when we wanted to enjoy our meal, but landed us strawberry daquiries on the house.

We were a party of 8 and ordered:

Appeteizers (they were out of duck tacos and corn dogs, but don't think we would've ordered those anyway) -
Beef Spring Rolls - More like a bigger version of a morrocan cigar, was not expecting the meat to be spiced like that, but if that's what you like these are for you)
Pulled Beef Sliders - Came with 3 sliders and frizzled onions and cole slaw on the side, cole slaw was a little spicy and excellent)
Chicken Lollypops - Ccame with I think 6 pieces in a really good sweet buffalo type sauce)
Tongue - Super soft and tasty, was really good on the bread that was provided with a little mustard)

Entrees -
I got the Blackened Rib Eye, which was cooked perfectly (medium), was nice and juicy with a little bit of fat and had a nice cajun rub on it to give it some spice, but not too much
Pepper Crusted Filet - Just what you would think it would be. Very lean piece of steak. Spicy
Skirt Steak (x2) - Again what you would expect, nice and tender, came with two decent size pieces, slightly salty.
Loft Chicken (x2) - Juicy chicken cutlets in a little sauce (I didn't taste it so can't tell you what kind of sauce) surrounded by potatoes and lots of vegetables.
Crispy Beef (appeteizer) - This was an excellent dish. Came with two pieces of beef, slightly crispy on the outside, but extremly soft and juicy on the inside. A nice version of a short rib type meat.
Last person got the Chicken Lollypopos and Pulled Beef Slider appeteizers (see above) as their main.

Desserts -
Chocolate Cake - Was ok but not what we expected. Was more of a chocolate mouse cake on a graham cracker crust with a strawberry sauce and some other fruit sauce with whipped cream and a spoon of vanilla ice cream
Napolean - I didn't taste this so can't comment on that, but was stacked high and came with fresh pineapple and orange slices.

Overall was excellent experience at an upscale steakhouse in the middle of BP.
Not sure how much the final bill was since I didn't pay  ;D

A lot of places in queens - sushi metsuyan and hapisga are good sit down types.  Cafe Elite is a nice dairy place on main street.  Otherwise there are the quick bite places like carlos and gabbys and grill point.

Went to El Gaucho in Brooklyn last night. Very good. Nice staff and excellent food. Cannot say how the service would be if it was crowded because it wasn't, but we had a pleasant experience. We had the vegetable and minestrone soups, the El Goucho ribeye steak and skirt steak (with a free glass of wine), all very good. Skipped dessert. Not an inexpensive restaurant. Would go again

Went to Pesada last night. The noise almost blew us out the door, but the food was incredible. I would highly recommend it. Had the mozzarella sticks, tropical egg roll, majestic ravioli and black pepper crusted tuna with vegetables and potatoes (my mouth is watering again). The staff is really nice, the place is nice, but I'll say it again, it was NOISY. Packed as well. I never downloaded pictures to this site. If someone is interested, just tell me how.

We just eat at a new place, 13th Ave and 40th street, Milechig place. (don't know if its actually new, but I see the old sign is off and they offer a much better menu, maybe just new management?) The fried onion stick was heaven, we had luck that they were out of french fries so they made their own fresh fries which was delicious, the pizza was very very good, very thin crust. It was extremely hot there but the guy said that the A/C being fixed soon.... Over all they offer something more than the typical borough park pizza store, all kind of cheese sticks etc.  Oh and the guy brought some cheese carrot muffins as compensation for my complaint that it was very hot there, in one word, it was the best carrot muffin I ever had.

Burger is meh
rib eye is good.
Kale salad was really good

beef pizza was solid and interesting
lamb chops were delicious
mirguez stuffed peppers were good
dont get the chicken skins- greasy
snickers something for dessert was really good
(went with 6 others and split the above)

How is there no reports yet of Odradeks??

Just went there today and HOLLLYYY COWW. It was AMAZING! It's a coffee house on J under the tracks that has sandwiches, wraps, and other breakfast lunch type items. I had an open sandwhich called The Standard (misnomer) with avocado, tomato, micro greens, basil oil, feta, poached egg served on brioche.

The place is clean and decorated nicely. I will definitely be back.

And use the CUPS app for a free cup of coffee, and use someone's referral code for another $10 (the smallest plan is $11 for 5 cups).
Pm for code if u need one. Ill need to scrounge it up.

Looking forward to the new Flatbush Ordadeks- supposed to be opening soon.
Try the maple syrup latte if you pop in.
They seriously have the most amazing, scrumptious pastries. The pastry chef makes the doughs with butter not margarine.

I just had the most heavenly pecan pie.

(Plus $10 of free coffee http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=53183.0)

Typo- I misspelled the name.

But they're pastries are seriously the best, beat Shloimy's and any other I've had.

Went to a relatively new place on Coney Island Avenue and Avenue P called Bordeaux. Excellent.
First off, the atmosphere is really nice. Not very noisy, pleasant to be there. Very friendly staff. Everything we had was excellent - pastrami empandas, prime beef and bean chili, 12oz. prime fillet and the special salad with steak. Dessert was on the house for us - the deconstructed smore - warm fudge brownie, vanilla bean ice cream, homemade marshmallow and cinnamon graham dust. Everything made just as we requested. One thing. Be prepared to spend a pretty penny. This doesn't come cheap.

It was good.  I had the classic, and wife had the lamb burger.  We also had the onion rings and the chicken fingers.

I liked the classic beef better than the lamb.  It was an excellent burger.  The onion rings were also really good, especially with the jalapeno dip.

The chicken fingers were also good, but I'd probably try something else next time.

Odradeks is in the midst of changing their model. Kitchen will be closed during the day, and all items will be made in the morning. However, I believe you will have the option to heat things up when you order/pay. Similar to the Starbucks model. Guess it makes sense to be more of a to-go place being near Touro, and the train.

Guess they're all crazy? The 2 are not comparable in the slightest. Have you even been to either?

Bagel whole is a bagel shop with tuna sandwiches and other similar items found in a bagel shop. Odradeks is entirely different, where one can find a sandwiches served on crunchy ciabatta bread, melted sharp cheddar, and baby greens. Mind you for about the same prices found at bagel hole, and for a million times better food.

Regarding the coffee, I must agree. While some serious coffee connoisseur love Odradeks coffee, I'm a 7-11 baby. Especially with every 7th cup free. Maybe Odradeks will begin a rewards system to match? If I was already getting a sandwich, and the coffee was the same price as 7-11, then I'd be inclined on getting it all in one stop.

Not really anywhere to sit down in bagel hole or 7-11
Another great point. Plus free wifi and bathrooms.


ETA: Forgot to mention that the 7-11 there is the worst branch on the east coast. The coffee station is consistently filthy, and they routinely run out of basics (splenda, medium sized cups, covers). Their attitude is no better. I drive to M, just to not have to go there.

Yah. Wasn't my favorite pizza--the cheese was a bit "higher quality" than I prefer. I like the kind I buy grated in the store, and I think the best one is Natural Kosher/The Three Farmgirls (which I think are the same company for some reason). 

But they were very busy, so I suppose it is other people's favorite.  On that score, it was a bit too busy for my "out of town" tastes also.

An oversized piece of overnight kugel 3.25 only thing which was a bit pricey was the kishke which was also amazing @ $1.98 a piece

I walked into their pizza shop on erev R"H, $14 for a personal pie with no seating space... turned around and went down the block to J2!

I was there last night as well.

Feel the same way.

Please tell me youre the guy who paid for that other guys cookie and told the cashier to tell him it was on the house :-X
Im not sure if I was there the same time as you but I do recall seeing someone randomly come in and get a cookie..like 12am. Is that the guy? I did not pay for the cookie...had no idea who what when, just remember seeing someone get one take a bite and walk out.

I walked into their pizza shop on erev R"H, $14 for a personal pie with no seating space... turned around and went down the block to J2!
Its insulting to me that a restaurant owner thinks that I'm too stupid and blind and will buy anything with his "Prime" brand name.

Newsflash to him...he won't make it through the year if he keeps this up.

Mind you J2 happens to be pretty good (and Pizza time even better IMO), and they're both a 30/45 second walk away. So I'm not even sure that Avenue J can handle 4 pizza shops (including Bennys) within a 2 minute walk from each other. Time will tell.

Really? Let's assume 1 or 2 appetizers and 1 main, and maybe 1 dessert.

Last year we went to Mikes Bistro and maybe spent 130. On a chabad sukka truck.

Chagall: The food was delicious. We had goose liver pate, spring rolls, steak, and creme brulee for dessert with french custard.
I had never tried these foods before (except the steak) so bear that in mind.
The pate was delicious, a bit like chopped liver but saltier. It came with truffle pieces mixed in. It was excellent.
The spring rolls, which had duck in them, were delicious too. The steak was perfect. One of the best I've ever tasted. And the creme brulee was amazing. The french custard was a bit caramel-y and I don't really go for that taste, so I can't judge it. Overall the food was outstanding and beautifully presented.

The service was excellent and we really liked the ambience, it felt very french. There weren't a lot of people there the night we came, which gave us a lot of privacy.

We didn't consider price when looking at the menu, but just ordered whatever sounded good. It all came to $100 including tip. Not bad for a fancy anniversary dinner.

went to the Loft last night. was just meh. the only thing that was really great were the cocktails. all of them were perfect.
the entire table got steaks (6 of us). we all ordered either med-well or med-rare. they were all well done. i like my steak pink and it was quite chewy. me and one other person got the rib eye, someone ordered skirt steak and specifically asked for salty, she sent it back right away as it tasted of bbq sauce completely. the crispy beef was so bad (too embarrassed to send back), filet mignon was ok. we waited for our food for an hour and we (mainly I) kept asking the waiter where our food was. they gave us chicken lollipops (13) and pulled beef sliders (30) on the house, so that was nice. mashed potatoes were nasty. we did not want dessert.
this was my second time going to the Loft. the first time i went was 2 years ago and i was incredibly disappointed with the flavor and the service. i was told that they have since changed management/chef (not sure which, maybe both?) and that they are now phenomenal... not so much. it also feels very local. not hard to forget you really are on 13th avenue.
one more thing, we went to Reserve Cut just last week so maybe i'm holding them to higher standards. certainly flavor-wise.

Yup. Was unfortunately pretty underwhelming compared the first time I went a few months ago (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=32383.msg1053704#msg1053704).

The chicken lollipops lacked the pizzazz they had last time; some might even call them "bland"  :-X

The duck gnocchi was... oiy. And I'm not even comparing it to Mike's.

(https://i.gyazo.com/3ecd005173f093ff6dad01a763af5ccf.png)

The crispy beef was probably the only thing that matched its former self.

The cajun steak and the pepper steak were good, but a far cry from where they were a few months ago.  (Though, to be fair, they were cooked to a perfect medium.)

The star of the show this time was probably dessert--which I'm excited about because their desserts last time left a bit to be desired.

Their version of smores (a special not on the menu):

(https://i.gyazo.com/b685ef557a2a06ee8c0342b93e477dfa.png)

Funny - As I saw the Bklyn Restaurant thread pop up, I remembered that I needed to update y'all.

It was great. We went as a party of 8 and it was one big party with some delicious food.

Great show and entertainment while we ordered all the appetizers on the menu. I was a big fan of the Tuna Dumpling (guacamole, spicy tuna dumping with Thai mango chili aioli) and the Classic Yakitori (street style chicken skewer).

I then got the Samurai Steak (medium rara) and it was delicious. We got a whole show during which he prepared the fried rice, veggies and from time to time made us catch veggies in our mouths to which he would reward us with Saki that he sprayed us with from 10 ft away.

We didn't order dessert yet they still gave us the tempura ice cream on the house. That was sadly quite disappointing. But overall I'd definitely go back again.

I do like the basil fries and I loved the hole in one challah french toast though.

So who has been to Kasai yet?
Went tonight and it was awesome. I don't think I ever spent so much on food (or tip so well) but it was definitely worth it. Great food (although a small menu, which could be because they make the food at your table), very entertaining, and overall a nice environment. And I also got the tempura ice cream for free. I thought it was very good.

Whoops. Meant $28. Had it last night

Yup $28 sounds right, or $14 for the lonely ravioli.

I hear you to an extent. Prices are high, but Noi Due is not really cheaper. Portions some are more generous and some are less, the Fritto Misto ($16) for one is a good value. Pastas are all great, but small portions and expensive.

I find (CMIIW) Noi Due portions to be larger and cheaper and I've always had excellent service there.

I did not make a reservation and didn't have any problems. The environment isn't loud but definately not quiet.
But the reason is because the chefs make a whole show, with banging, singing (if you want to call it that) and so on.

I advise to definitely  have a reservation if going with a group as there are only 4 or 5 tables I believe. If going as party of 2 I'd also call it in but either way you would be seated with a mixed cord upon availability.

Hm. The ice cream is the one thing I really didn't like. AAMOF (As a matter of fact) no one at the table enjoyed it. Otherwise I agree.

Went to Kasai last night. It's a lot of fun! Food is good but you can't go back too often because there isn't really that much variety. Definitely recommended though. It's probably better is you're part of a large group (8 people). If not, they sit you with other people.

Kasai in a few words? Fun, savory, and awesome.

After landing in JFK from our most recent trip (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=33867.msg1307436#msg1307436), we thought we'd cap it off with a nice meal at a Brooklyn restaurant, something we don't often get the opportunity to do considering the distance from us. We had heard good things about Kasai, and after speaking with a friend who had been to confirm the rumors, we set a reservation for 9:20 PM.

We arrived about 9:25 PM and were seated promptly. Now, this isn't your usual dining experience. Instead of being seated by yourselves, there is what I would call "communal dining." Some people will love it, others will hate it. We loved it, though it obviously depends who your co-diners happen to be, and the chemistry between everyone. For us, it just worked.

There are 8 seats surrounding a large hibachi grill. When we arrived, another couple had already been seated, and we, in turn, were seated right across from the chef. Before the chef began, another couple came, so it was 6 in total for this "show/dinner."

It did take a little too long for the "show" to start (I guess the owner was waiting for someone else to fill out the table?), but during that time, the waiter came by and took our orders. I started off with the trio fruit sake: one lychee, one fuji apple, and one white peach. Delicious.

(https://i.gyazo.com/4517b3dc841edd1f42f21bfc052d4373.png)

We also ordered the YAKI CHICKEN GYOZA ($15) and EDAMAME ($7). The Edamame was unfortunately just that--emamame with salt. Nothing unique, nothing different. Skip.

(https://i.gyazo.com/39824a4e004f8c86abacbfd7750d4cac.png)

The Gyoza, on the other hand, was wow. Fantastic. It came served steaming hot (though not made/cooked before us), the texture was divine, and the sauce was a total complement. (If I *had* to quibble, I would wish there was a bit more meat inside each one). But: a must get.

(https://i.gyazo.com/61a8a2612a215781c22fe987490acd3f.jpg)

First up on the grill was the rice. And, what a way to start. With a huge bang. (You can see how it's prepared in the video below.) Second to only the Vietnamese Rice (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=30766.msg549437;topicseen#msg549437) in HKG, this rice was imbued with character, depth, and flavor. It's served with every main dish as far as I could tell. Thank your lucky stars for that.

For our mains, we got a HIBACHI SAMURAI STEAK ($35) and HIBACHI PRIME RIB EYE STEAK / BONELESS ($42). Both were bursting with flavor, cooked wonderfully, and served, as is usual at a hibachi place, piping fresh and steaming hot. If I had to pick one, I'd say prime rib, but Mrs. AJK would say samurai.  The other side was grilled veggies, and they, too, did not disappoint. Another good complement to the dish.

(https://i.gyazo.com/9f0ce9b41589f8ddbb0aee121f36c049.jpg)

And the steaks are served with two sauces, depicted below, one of which is called "yummy, yummy sauce." While I made a joke that that name was a wee bit presumptuous, it should have been called "heaven, heaven sauce." It was delightful. I forget what he said the ingredients were, but I think he said "fruity mayonnaise" or some other such weird concoction. I didn't care; it was, as I said, awesome and didn't taste like "fruit mayo" to me. The other sauce also was very good, but forgot the name.

(https://i.gyazo.com/0d0025185ad27ccb87d71937b12ca8b0.png)

For dessert, we got TEMPURA ICE CREAM ($13) and it was average. Lotta fried stuff, not enough ice cream. By no means bad, but it's not memorable.

(https://i.gyazo.com/989370dd042891cacc534423a42b226d.jpg)

Oh, just before I forget, one of our co-diners suggested we do Sake bombs before the food came, which we did.  After the meal, we were presented with the bill for the bombs, but we were shmoozing with the owner and he kindly offered those on the house.  Nice gesture, indeed.

With the food review out the way, this is more than just a restaurant; it's an experience. Below are some pics from the show, with a video of the beginning. Again, like all important things, I can imagine the show being quite polarizing (the chef at one point tosses rice clumps at the guests' mouths, and if you catch, and sometimes even if not, you're rewarded with flowing sake from a ketchup bottle being squirted from 3-5 feet away (I was rewarded off video ;)) and there is a "peeing boy" who shoots oil or water on the grill), but we definitely came out on the enamored segment of that scale.

A blurry pic of the peeing boy (sorry, took pic with my phone and wasn't expecting it so couldn't focus properly):

(http://i.gyazo.com/28832568a17393486595f2d324fd8042.jpg)

And finally a video of the first 2 or so mins.





Bottom line, the place is not necessarily "cheap" (my bill was about $160 which included mandatory % tip (not cool)) but it deserves a visit. If you're uncomfortable by the group seating, put off by the peeing boy, or apprehensive about being able catch small rice clumps with your mouth in front of strangers, well, I think that's more of a reflection on you than the restaurant. Show was fun and lighthearted. And most important? The food was tasty. Will definitely go back.

P.S. I caught my rice clump on the second try (as you can see in the video when the people cheer). First one was a bad throw :P

Please note. Pescada is very good but one of the most noisy restaurants I've been to. Bordeaux is also excellent but bring a Brinks truck to pay for it. We happen to like Renaissance, maybe not as fancy, but very good and less noisy. I believe they treated their ceilings for sound.

I personally did not find Pescada noisy, I actually found it a bit pricey. For the 2 of us (1 apppitizer, 2 mains & 2 desserts) plus Tax and Tip was $120. I've gotten much more for my buck at cafe renaissance, & venezia. And yes Bordeaux is most probably the most expensive meaty restaurant in Brooklyn. But has real great experience there.

This time was a sheva brochos. They gave chicken lolly pops to start and small pulled beef on small buns. Soup was vegetable or chicken (I had the chicken which was vegetable with chicken pieces). Then a rib steak, well done and actually juicy and delicious. Came with French fries (fresh). Also had a chicken - dark meat. Dessert was a hot chocolate cake with oozing chocolate and ice cream. Gave rum drinks out as well, delicious. Everyone loved everything. Being on a little diet I had the soup and meat and drink.

I seem to be from the few Odradeks fans here..however I will still share the news.

This past summer Odradeks changed they're entire business model and IMO went completely bust. Before the change, they had several sandwiches that IMO kicked even Zak the Baker out of the water. However they took away all the hot food and focused on being a coffee shop, with a limited to-go sandwich menu.

I used to go several times a week (it was that good), and there was a nice amount of foot traffic. Sadly since the menu change, I would walk by and it always seemed rather empty.

A few days ago I was at the 7-11 next door and stopped in to talk to the owner and voice my sadness. He shared with me that there will be a grand reopening with some new management, and while they will still be focusing on being a coffee shop more than a restaurant, they will be brining back the most popular hot sandwiches that will be made fresh.  :D  :D

We just eat at a new place, 13th Ave and 40th street, Milechig place. (don't know if its actually new, but I see the old sign is off and they offer a much better menu, maybe just new management?) The fried onion stick was heaven, we had luck that they were out of french fries so they made their own fresh fries which was delicious, the pizza was very very good, very thin crust. It was extremely hot there but the guy said that the A/C being fixed soon.... Over all they offer something more than the typical borough park pizza store, all kind of cheese sticks etc.  Oh and the guy brought some cheese carrot muffins as compensation for my complaint that it was very hot there, in one word, it was the best carrot muffin I ever had.
Visited this place again, and service really got much better since last time we were there. And the food as last time was GREAT! Two thing you don't wanna miss next time you're there, their Tiramisu for dessert, the best Tiramisu you'll ever taste! And the deep fried pizza! Has a crust, fluffy inside and delicious flavor. Gotta try it out folks!

Anyone else here with this experience?

El Gaucho Glatt Closes, Restaurant Sold in Auction El Gaucho Glatt
On January 31st, El Gaucho Glatt, the Argentinian steakhouse in Brooklyn, closed it's doors for good. The restaurant went up for auction just a few days later. The restaurant owner tried his best to keep the place open. The food was consistently good and was a great value for your money. Locals are sad to see the restaurant close.

Had it and it was great, but for the rest, at those prices, I'll stick with reserve cut.
I mean, 64 bucks for the 10oz prime ( better known as surprise steak) it was way better in RC ( OK ,so its 65 there), can't even compare.
Oh , and the tacos, why do I always make this mistake..... Similar, but not close to RC.
Ambience is great, but I found that the portions were a bit stingy.

Agreed, I was actually treated there so the bill to me wasn't the issue :) but the portions are stingy, and comparing to RC, you don't need to shlep to the city for this and they do offer valet so it takes paking off your shoulders.. And I think they'll be happy that people are comparing them to RC...

As for the shlep to the city, I'd rather go to T fusion (W&L, or The Loft), which is better and cheaper.

Tried Orchidea last night. Food was pretty good, but the service was subpar.
We went from having hovering waiters who wouldn't leave us alone, to being unable to catch anyone's attention when we were ready to leave.
Also, the music was as annoying as annoying gets.

The sushi was good. Highlight for me was the sushi pizza and Godzilla roll.
My spinach and cheese ravioli was delicious, but way too heavy on the sauce.
Overall, worth it with the Groupon we had, but I doubt I would recommend it.

Service was very nice.

I loved the rice and beans which was eaten after not eating anything all day. I also had the brisket and ribs. I liked them. I can't say I went crazy for them, but that's probably because I might not be a smoked guy. It was probably the first time I had the real thing.

Not exactly what you were asking, but half court sports bar has no kitchen and you can bring/order-in your own food.

Tried Orchidea last night. Food was pretty good, but the service was subpar.
We went from having hovering waiters who wouldn't leave us alone, to being unable to catch anyone's attention when we were ready to leave.
Also, the music was as annoying as annoying gets.

The sushi was good. Highlight for me was the sushi pizza and Godzilla roll.
My spinach and cheese ravioli was delicious, but way too heavy on the sauce.
Overall, worth it with the Groupon we had, but I doubt I would recommend it.

We have reservations for motsei Shabbos. Anyone else going to be there? DO?

Also, I see that the sushi and ravioli are recommended, and I remember that someone (Dan?) recommended the French onion soup. Anything else to get or to avoid? How about dessert?

Thanks.

Quick report:
We enjoyed last night.
The French onion soup is 10/10. Loved reading melted cheese over the crusty bread that did not get too soggy. And they only charge $7 for the tureen? Bargain!

They bread they served us was also good.
(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160418/f0fb0ac4304f974e19bbfe32ae8215aa.jpg)

The California rolls were good but nothing special.
(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160418/1ec944f3358bb8ee26c3b8eaa9e44a68.jpg)

We also had Godzilla roll (sorry no pic) and sushi pizza. I would say the Godzilla roll is 7/10 and the pizza 6/10. Problem might have been we were kind of full after the soup alone.

I found it a little weird that they include the gratuity -- only two of us dining. And they didn't mention it and seemed to expect an additional gratuity? Maybe that is standard operating procedure in NYC these days...I don't get out too often.

All in all, recommend the place. Nice atmosphere. If one could just order soup, the place would be a bargain. I just don't know if they would frown on that, as it is a "fine dining" establishment.

Went to T Fusion last night. by far the best dish was the BBQ Bourbon Ribs. We're generally a sucker for ribs and order it all the time. i thought Nobo's ribs were great. this was better. they have it in the starters menu but it's a main for sure (it's so big). at $28 it's certainly the best deal. FYI if you are more of a "lean meat" kinda guy, you will hate this. it's very fatty. if you're planning on going Chol Hamoed, know it will be on the Pesach menu.

we had sweet bread/tongue (8/10), bbq ribs (10/10), Kale Caesar (1/10- they forgot the tomatoes and the egg, too much vinegar), Cowboy steak (7/10), Delmonico (7/10), Filet Mignon (8/10), soufle (9/10), churros (9/10), tiramisu (6/10). we also had pina coladas (virgin tasted better for some reason, we had 3 total), citrus margarita (8/10), and sour apple something that was a T Fusion drink. nothing sour or apple, waste of money.

over all we were very happy with the food but service was slow. we sat upstairs and there were 3/4 other tables all sharing one waitress. food took forever to come out. we met the general manager (asked for the chef but he was next door at an event) he was nice and suggest the churros for dessert, comped 2 desserts and a tea :)

Our service was pretty good.  The little guy was kind of heimish. I thought maybe they added the tip because they knew we were using a Groupon an didn't want to get "stiffed" (i.e., only tipping on the net, rather than the gross). But it sounds like they ALWAYS add the tip.   Still, I would go back for the FOS. :)

Nice of them to add a line for additional tip in case the 20% was insufficient for you to show your gratitude.  ;D

Not to beat a dead horse, but...
Who uses 20/25/30% as the range for tipping?
And note that they included their 20% on the total including tax.
Had we ordered drinks (actually we did order a milk shake, but they forgot it), I'm sure they would have included tip on the beverage, too.
But as I said, my future plan will be to go back and order French onion soup for two, and be out of there for under $20, all-in.

Do the math, the 20% is pre-tax (regardless of how the papers lines are set up).

Why shouldn't they charge tip on beverages?

Ok, I stand corrected re the 20%.
I don't know for sure about tipping on drinks when you're having dinner. Somewhere deep in the recess of my memory I recall learning this, but I have no source.  Maybe it's wrong?

what you're probably referring to is that some people give a smaller percentage when they order drinks because the bill is higher

I think Bison and Bourbon opened 6/1 (soft launch?), the two B&Bs are going to be confusing.

I heard they're also opening a Bed & Breakfast

That one won't be confused, it's dairy and there isn't any & in the name. On that note, Artisanal Bakehouse food is good but it takes forever++ to order. It takes so long that I've gone elsewhere only for that reason. Also, their food is much better to-stay than it is to-go, though that's true about many places

Update: I called in the morning and they were able to give me a reservation. The food was superb. All of it. I got the lamb ribs for an appetizer, and they were delicious - melted in my mouth. For the main, I got the Apple Wood smoked Delmonico steak - 9/10 only because I ordered a medium rare and it was a teensy bit more rare than I would have liked. The exotic mushrooms made a delicious side dish, and the sorbet for dessert was just average. But the kicker was the drinks - we each ordered The Bourbon, which was a 10/10. I also got the Peach Julep which they made very well, but I personally didn't love it.

I was there last night, I wasnt meshuga over the food but I would 100% go again.. I took the delmonico & the significant other took the bbq ribs.. there almost wasnt any meat on the bones.. Steak was not bad.. 7/10 rating IMO.
Drinks were great, side dishes were great such as mushrooms, fries, truffle potatoes was "OK"
Wasnt cheap, Mikes-Reserve pricing id say..

that's normal for most mixed drinks. Apps are only worth buying one or two. And 3 people can probably share 2 steaks/ribs.
Those are pricey yet worth it, imo.  Haven't had an awesome dessert there, yet, but a good cocktail can be like a dessert after a really great steak.

Has anyone been to Sushi Tokyo lately? They changed the menu (really small now) and the prices shot up, regular hand rolls that used to be $6 are now $8.95, seems a little high for sushi, not to mention that they got really cheap with the rice, felt like I was eating sushi from a corner grocery store! Anyone know if there a new management or something?
New menu is a rip off.

Word of mouth I've heard in Crown Heights is that the place is nice, drinks are good, food is meh. Sounds like they had a grand idea for a restaurant, and opened without a serious chef to match the price and atmosphere of the place.

+1 but don't sell it short. It's a great dine, but nothing that you wouldn't get from t fusion, the loft, wolf and lamb etc. Brooklyn style is nice atmosphere but food is usually a bit overpriced.

Excellent space (pretty unusual for america, and enjoyed eating outdoors on a 75ish evening), but go for the great drinks, quality wings and small stuff, I personally wouldnt pay the big bucks for their steaks... basically, imho enjoy them as a bar not a restaurant.

If the lamp chop with the pea puree is still on- go for it!

Went to Kasai last night.
Had a reservation for 8 @8 and wasn't seated until 8:40.
Crowded and loud.
I thought I had the perfect seat since I found the AC flow but alas the smoke also found that flow and was in my face constantly.
Starters were good. Mains were filling but nothing to write home about at all. They were out of everything I wanted and had I not been there with a group I would have left and gone elsewhere.
I never order steak in a restaurant and this experience further rooted that mentality within.
The starters are made in the kitchen downstairs so its nicer plating while the Hibachi mains are on the griddle fast food style and unceremoniously dumped on your plate. The actual food prep is a fun experience with each chef having their own takes on it - fire juggling, knife tosses, animations...The sake spraying was temporarily out of service due to a customer that complained to the Kashrus agency about it this week.
There was a pineapple chunk garnish on our desert plates which was obviously canned, should not have been.
A wonderful way to eat out and enjoy yourself with family or friends and I would prob do it again but the food value is significantly below the price I paid.

im pretty sure the hechser company will not allow any alcohol in if its not kosher. That is why different venues have different types of certain alcohol bottles bec some hechshers will allow certain types and some won't. That is in NYC I'm sure in other towns it is different.

The hasgacha allows that?

It's fairly common when no liquor license. They'll check the bottle, no non-mevushal etc

Brooklyn’s answer to NYC’s Restaurant Week (which only has one kosher restaurant participating this summer, and typically where none participate) is a 12 day event known as Dine-In Brooklyn.

Dine-In Brooklyn officially starts tomorrow, Thursday 8/11, and ends on Monday 8/22.

Similar to NYC Restaurant Week, restaurants offer fixed price meals during the duration of the promotional period, which are specific menus with few choices. Diners can choose items from the regular menu, but will pay for those dishes in addition to the prix fixe deal.

dine-in-brooklyn-kosher-restaurantsThe official pricing is as follows, per person, for all participating restaurants:

$28 Three Course DINNERS
$15 Two Course LUNCHES
$12 Weekend BRUNCHES
NOTE: Keep in mind that if a restaurant is not open for that particular meal, than that offer obviously isn’t available at that restaurant.

As of the writing of this post, there are 5 kosher restaurants participating in the Dine-In Brooklyn promotion (Hashgacha listed in parentheses):

Blueberry Cafe – a modern dairy restaurant serving Italian, American and Israeli dishes in Midwood (R’ Yisroel Gornish)
Brooklyn Artisan Bakehouse – a new artisan bakeshop and café in Crown Heights (OK Kosher)
Glatt A La Carte – classy steakhouse and sushi restaurant located in Borough Park (R’ Yechiel Babad)
T Fusion Steakhouse – elegant steakhouse serving unique seasonal cuisine in Marine Park (R’ Yisroel Gornish)
The V Spot – Latin organic vegan cuisine, located in Park Slope (IKC)"

What do you recommend to get from t fusion?

Went to T Fusion last night. by far the best dish was the BBQ Bourbon Ribs. We're generally a sucker for ribs and order it all the time. i thought Nobo's ribs were great. this was better. they have it in the starters menu but it's a main for sure (it's so big). at $28 it's certainly the best deal. FYI if you are more of a "lean meat" kinda guy, you will hate this. it's very fatty.

we had sweet bread/tongue (8/10), bbq ribs (10/10), Kale Caesar (1/10- they forgot the tomatoes and the egg, too much vinegar), Cowboy steak (7/10), Delmonico (7/10), Filet Mignon (8/10), souffle (9/10), churros (9/10), tiramisu (6/10). we also had pina coladas (virgin tasted better for some reason, we had 3 total), citrus margarita (8/10), and sour apple something that was a T Fusion drink. nothing sour or apple, waste of money.

overall we were very happy with the food but service was slow. we sat upstairs and there were 3/4 other tables all sharing one waitress. food took forever to come out. we met the general manager (asked for the chef but he was next door at an event) he was nice and suggest the churros for dessert, comped 2 desserts and a tea :)

Had to go to Williamsburg for whatever reason on Friday.  I picked up some Shabbos food from Gottliebs, wasn't that great.  They are also a restaurant, did anybody ever eat at the restaurant part and enjoy it?

Thanks guys. In the Bedford was crzy traffic and didnt have any openings till 7:30 so we went to Bison & Bourbon. We really liked the ambiance and food. sat upstairs and had the pulled beef flat breads, ribs and dominaco. I thought the steak was perfect and really liked how flavorful the the meat is versus prime and reserve where they just mildly season  the meat- tastses great but I can do that at home on my grill this was bursting with flavor.

Brooklyn Steak Co.

beef poppers - mediocre. way too dry

Steak:
16oz rib steak was cooked well, could've had a bit more flavor or maybe paired with a wine sauce
Fugettaboudit steak was cooked well, and had decent flavor but not worth the $65 price tag IMO

Sides: fries were better than average, mashed potatoes were way below average

beef poppers - mediocre. way too dry

Steak:
16oz rib steak was cooked well, could've had a bit more flavor or maybe paired with a wine sauce
Fugettaboudit steak was cooked well, and had decent flavor but not worth the $65 price tag IMO

Sides: fries were better than average, mashed potatoes were way below average

This place is around the corner from my office, would you say it is worth the visit or shlepping my wife in from Queens to go there?

I have credit at Izzys from small business saturday 2 years ago. About 90 dollars.

by Sunday he should have plenty. The best items in my opinion are the "smoked Dinosaur ribs", the BBQ chicken wings, and many people like the smoked brisket and the chili -- mine were dry, but that may have changed...

once you are in CH, it's worth it to go to Brooklyn Artisan Bakehouse, too. Great chocolate pastries, croissants, and some toast with pesto and melted cheese.
Maybe Bakehouse for Sunday brunch, and do Izzy's for dinner.

I want to share my experience maybe it can help other people.

For starter, we had 
"Bourbon Pulled Beef $18". Was very good.
 "Tuna Tartare 18". was fantastic.
"Bourbon Cured Salmon" 16 Awesome, you got to like raw fish though.
"Roasted Bone Marrow 21" Incredible..
"Lengua Tacos 21" Not good :-[ tasteless.

For main we had
"Cowboy Steak 20oz 58" its OK, ive had better steaks before.
"Bourbon BBQ Beef ribs 54" Rip off it almost has no meat. you pay for pretty bones.

Desert
"S'mores Lava Cake 14" yummi

I can see why people  think the food is not the best, its not typical food. starters and deserts are mostly good. steaks are ok but not bad by any means. all in all i think its a nice place to spend time and have some drinks (which are really fantastic). I was trying to upload some pics. im having trouble with the file size :o

How's the space/ambiance at MH BBQ? Anything you had that was amazing?

Space is decent. I was there at 7:30 and there were empty tables. Like I said I didn't order so I'm not really sure what things were. But the food was really good. I'd definitely recommend it if you're in that area rather than shlepping to CH for izzys and not getting a table. Easy parking in their lot or on the street. Much bigger than izzys but not big. They also have a projector size screen on the wall that was tuned to the Nets then Giants game if you're into that sorta thing.

Thanks for the helpful feedback. I actually live in CH, you might have convinced me not to shlepp out to Mill Basin for this.

Bison & Bourbon
Ambiance is loud but pleasant.
Service was very good. Friendly & knowledgeable.
Food was sooo good!
We had: lamb ribs, lamb sliders, fries (we needed to reorder. Was so incredible). We also had cowboy steak, ribs, coffee crusted lamb chop. All very good. The sides were not the best. We also had a mango-rita and an apple twist. Both fabulous. All in all a fantastic meal. (We had no room for dessert)

$335

I have credit at Izzys from small business saturday 2 years ago. About 90 dollars.
I'm going to go next week.
What are the things that we should get?  Is it worth it to go on a Sunday, or do they not have as much stuff because of shabbos?

How was Izzy's? What did you order? What did you like best?

Actually thought the burger (sunny side) was rather tasteless TBH and a total waste of $, and the classic burger was even worse. Perhaps their sandwiches are better?

 But they did have a spicy popper-like appetizer that was pretty awesome.
