Unheralded Brooklyn Restaurants

This is timely because we will be eating at Okeanos for the first time tomorrow evening for a birthday celebration. We really like Polonica in Bay Ridge. Delicious stick to your ribs Polish food. I would wait until the cold weather for that one though. Well worth a train ride.

Where can I get a strawberry shortcake?

I posted this in outer boroughs and I thought I'd given Manhattan a shot. Biscuit preferred but will do layer. Thank you.

Four and Twenty Blackbirds pies

I am sure I will get blasted but I think they are completely overrated. Du Jour has the best baked goods in that area in my opinion. That said, I love their salted caramel apple.

Strawberry shortcake I want it

This is a big splurge for me diet-wise so I want one that is worth it. Any suggestions? Will travel. Thank you.

Sahadi's vs. Trader Joe's: bulk prices

If they were selling out to the mass market concept they would be open on Sunday. Perhaps they are attending Catholic mass.

Rehearsal dinner for 20 in Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill/Boerum Hill?

I would try an old school Italian restaurant in Carroll Gardens like Red Rose on Smith Street. It would be appropriate for price and accommodating to people in their 70's.

Bostonians stayting in Brooklyn, need advice

Hill Country BBQ is right near where you are staying and across from that is the Shake Shack. These are not ethnic but in a pinch you might enjoy going for a lunch or a snack.

Try to find a Bay Ridge or Bensonhurst community posting board. You most likely will get a response there.

Low-key pub with great burgers and beer

I don't know about any more but at one time Fanelli's fit the bill. It's been a long time for me.

Grumpy Old Man - Staubitz Guy is really irritating

I went to go in there last year with my shopping cart and I was told I could not bring it into their empty store. My cart was loaded with groceries and I was told to leave it on the sidewalk. As a life long Brooklynite I know that leaving goods in a cart with wheels on the sidewalk is not a good idea. I left and never went back.

Great pancakes in Brooklyn

I am a fan of the follow up so here goes. Went to Cafe Luluc this morning. World class pancakes! Worth every carb. Thanks everyone. The eggs florentine also out of this world. Not swimming in hollandaise all perfectly proportioned. My only regret, I didn't get a whole of pancakes for myself, we split x 3.

Where can I find churros in Brooklyn around Park Slope or anywhere

I don't take it as snark at all. Those vendors are not there all the time and in fact were not when the D train arrived at Pacific Street this afternoon as I was traveling home with the churros from La Churreria on Mulberry Street. I have packed and shipped them with the greatest of care knowing full well that they might not be in good shape. For insurance of yummy treats I made sure to pack lots of Easter candy from Jacques Torres. I spoil the kids. All I know is they better not ask for Cronuts, they will be out of luck. Thanks again everyone!

Thank you! I agree about the traveling but I just want him to know that I am paying attention to what he wants from the big city. They will be there in 1 day vis UPS.

My young nephew saw a show on the Food Network in which churros were featured and he wants them. They live way out in the country and it is his birthday and I want to UPS some to him. Does anyone know where I can get them? I know there is sometimes a lady selling them on the Pacific Street train station but I want something more definite than that.

Hot Cross Buns in Brooklyn?

Try Leske's in Bay Ridge. The Leske's Park Slope has closed down. Call first because they run out of things early.

If the prices are comparable I will always choose the local shop every single time.
