Comfort Food at Park Slope's Bussaco
833 Union Street, Park Slope; (718) 857.8828
"What makes this menu interesting is that [Chef Matthew] Schaefer serves only food that he really likes to eat - Mom's sauerkraut, homemade gravlax, Yorkshire pudding and fried chicken. If you can't make it to Roscoe's Chicken n' Waffles in Los Angeles, try the fried chicken and waffles at Bussaco, also one of Schaefer's favorite dishes. His version is poussin - baby chicken - and vanilla-scented waffles topped with caramelized apple-onion butter." [NYDN]
New Menus Revealed!
James in Prospect Heights has a new brunch menu that goes above and beyond eggs and pancakes — featured items include "Crepes with Parmacotto, Aged Manchego, Sweet Marjoram Béchamel" and "Blackberry Stuffed Brioche French Toast." Plus, The General Greene in Fort Greene just launched a new breakfast menu that promises "house-made banana bread, oat scones, and sticky buns, plus pressed sandwiches for around $4 (eggs and Gruyere) to $5 (eggs, bacon, and Cheddar)," says Grub Street. (They've got a new espresso machine, too.) For the night owls, Carroll Gardens bar Abilene also has a new menu, featuring pulled pork sandwiches, burgers, smoked ribs, chicken wings, and burritos.
Coming Soon to Smith Street?
Chowhound bhill notes that another branch of Park Slope's "Kiku, Japanese Fusion and Lounge" is opening in the old Videomania space on Smith and Wycofft. A fellow 'Hound adds that the old Sapodilla space at 247 Smith Street (near Douglass) "had people moving around inside on Sat. night," and the restaurant on the corner of Smith and Butler that formerly housed both Providence and Sur now "has a new paint job." Anyone know what's in store for these spots?
