Booze brunch in Park Slope

We ended up going to Sette and were happy with the drinks but not so much with the food. I liked the ricotta fritters, but the fig and prosciutto and the eggs 'benedict' are to be avoided. Although, I'm not complaining, they kept refilling our drinks even after the check had been paid and the table partially cleared, so who cares about the food?! I might not try it sober though...

Good eats in Gowanus?

There's a rotisserie chicken place on 3rd and 12th street that has a great 1/2 chicken + rice and beans combo. Not much atmosphere though, so I usually take it to go, and sometimes they run out on the early side. Deli 1 (I think it's called) on 3rd and 13th is supposed to have great breakfast sandwiches, etc.

Booze brunch in Park Slope

haha, I've only eaten once at Tom's and had eggs, so can't really talk - but it's just the kind of thing my friends would like on principle, just for kicks and feeling good about a free cookie. You know how it is.

Booze brunch in Park Slope

I'm reciprocating a $15 all-you-can-drink brunch at Sunburnt Cow in Alphabet City (yum) - anything like that in the Slope? I realize the quality of the food might have to suffer a bit, but I can't front with the $8 bloodymary's at Little D, unfortunately. I wish Tom's Restaurant (I know, not park slope) served mimosas, that would be perfect - they don't right?

Fun, inexpensive restaurant in Park Slope

I agree, Perch was horrible the one time I tried it. It didn't help that it was open mic night.

Cafe Kashkar in Brighton Beach

I tried to go to Cafe Kashkar a couple of weekends ago after reading about it on this board. The restaurant was practically empty, but the waitress insisted that we couldn't be seated as the tables were all "reserved". When we asked how long the wait would be she told us "a long time". So we had to leave! Hungry and disappointed! I was so mad at myself I didn't make a back-up plan. So, call ahead for those "reservations" or have a second choice. She must not have liked my outfit or something... it was really weird!

NY Noodle Town, tables for 8?

Does anybody know if NY Noodle town could likely seat 8 people? I've been wanting to try it and am thinking of taking my visiting family there next weekend, but wanted to find out how cramped the space is first...

8 visitors, 4 days, rec's for good meals?

Sounds like the RGR LES Food Excursion takes care of Sunday! Thanks RGR. I love Russ and Daughters but have myself never been to Katz's OR the Tenement Museum, so this will be exciting for all!

I've got 4 people in their 50's and 4 in their 30's, no one should be too picky or surprised at NYC prices, but I think entrees under $30 would be best.
We'll be doing lots of touring but most of it should be Times Square and below, since they're all staying near me in park slope.

My midwestern family is coming into town for a long weekend and I'm in need of some recommendations of passable affordable restaurants that can fit a party of 8. Not looking for anything fancy, just casual places that might be of interest to first time visitors.
