AAA Inspector Notes
It is hard to imagine a more humble ambience, but once you get beyond the shabby décor here guests can find creative and tasty food on the small hand-written menu. At lunch there usually is a salad, an omelet, sandwiches and burgers. A recent visit included a crisp fried chicken sandwich with cayenne, mayonnaise, pickled egg and greens. Dinner offers a few more entrées with such items as lamb steak with charred leek purée, fennel potato salad and horseradish crème fraîche. There is no sign on the door but this place is easy to recognize as it is in an old classic diner building. The similarities to the classic 1950's diner end there as this place offers a small menu of progressive cuisine and a nice selection of craft beers and liquors. Service is friendly and knowledgeable. This place is popular with the young hip Brooklyn locals.
