Great brunch spot – A friend that lives in the neighborhood showed us this perfect brunch spot. We tried it out on a Sunday afternoon, and everything was great. If your drink is not fixed properly, all you have to do is ask your waitress and she will take care of the mistake. Plenty of room for large parties. Chicken and waffle was delicious. We haven't tried it out on a regular week day/night, but we definitely would like to go back there and try it out again.
Homey tavern brings country eats and style to Bed-Stuy's urban frontier. – In Short
Antique wood cabinets and the scent of smoked cedar lend this Bed-Stuy tavern a homey, countrified air. There's some Brooklyn funk too, with scattered loveseats, vinyl record covers on display, and vintage magazines on-hand for perusing. An easygoing crowd drawn largely from the nearby Pratt Institute joins a diverse group of locals, where they nurse beers at the communal table or mingle outside on the trellised patio. The wide-planked bar is stocked with bowls of peanuts, helping to ease the wait for grub like Louisiana-style crab cakes and Buffalo wings.
Hits: The bartender can mix cocktails like a pro, and the draft selection isn't overly ponderous (think Sierra, Guinness and Blue Moon).
Misses: The kitchen might close a bit early for those craving late-night grub (11pm most weekdays).
