Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is a little more sparse - okay, a lot more sparse -- in terms of dining scene than nearby neighborhoods like Park Slope or Clinton Hill, so it absolutely, positively deserves a big fat gift of a restaurant like Whiskey Sunday.
The place isn't open yet at this writing (and is keeping mum about a debut date), but we're already drooling at Time Out's tipoff: There's a wood-smoker for 500 lbs. of meat, "spice-rubbed slabs" of beef (including cheeks - ahh, cheeks), and a veritable smorgasbord of whiskey types - 75, says TONY. After the late Lookout Hill Smokehouse closed last fall (and took its epic bourbon selection with it), we're excited for a new meat-and-rye destination. 49 Lincoln Rd. between Flatbush and Ocean Aves.; 718-282-7098.
