“The food, the service, the drinks - everything was fabulous.”
Happy they are here!. My husband and I dine frequently at Little D. and always have such a pleasant experience. Service is friendly and accommodating, never snobby, restaurant can be full but its not loud and we dont feel cramped, food choices are fun and innovative and being a non-meat eater I can always have a great meal. We previously had stopped dining out in Park Slope because it was always an ordeal but now look forward to treating ourselves at Little D. I sense such a good energy in the place - they must be doing everything right!
Good things come in small packages at this good-natured Brooklyn restaurant..
South Park Slopers hungry for the neighborhood's dining renaissance pack the rather plain restaurant nightly, often squeezing four to a modest wooden two-top or crowding the small bar. Thankfully, the friendly staff rush to fill orders and offer menu advice.
The dishes may be small, but the intense flavors are a lesson in the power of quality ingredients. If you have just one dish, make it the grilled baby octopus atop fennel salad--the creatures' charred edges add depth to their bright lemon-tinged bath. Turn to the earth with the warm mushrooms salad, brimming with hen-of-the-woods. Mains are regular sized, but continue the simple theme--a tender whole fish arrives baked with only lemon and herbs for stuffing, while the braised lamb shank sits atop a robust black olive spaetzle. Pair the richly sweet chocolate cake with a dessert wine for a fitting send-off.
FABULOUS!!. This place is a welcome addition to the nabe. I had the salmon over couscous (I cleaned my plate). The blueberries with whipped cream is a nice way to finish off the meal. Would recommend for a date as the ambiance is great and the staff is very friendly. Definitely deserves to stay around.
Disappointing meal. The baby octopus entree was rubbery and flavorless, the mushroom appetizer large but plain, the pear dessert had a lot of dry cake and very little by way of pears or chocolate sauce. A fish entree was good. The bean side dish had little flavor. The service was attentive but overdone for the tiny and very ordinary setting and poor food. The little dishes added up to a big bill for a disappointing meal.
