Koto Sushi & Steak

Hey I live a few buildings down from Koto. I travel all the time for my work, and they must have opened while i was on the road. "Steve", the sushi chef is friendly and very talented. He was copying the styles of some of the higher end Manhattan sushi places, making us laugh, and always serving us familiar fish in new, exciting ways. I have been a few times now, and the Achi (horse mackerel) is my absolute favorite, followed by seared yellowtail with jalapeno. I no longer order from the menu, I just let Steve keep giving me fresh pieces. This can be a pricey habit, but I believe its the only way to do it. Enjoy Koto!!!

Le Pit Stop $25 Prix Fixe 3 course Mon-Thurs. I think call before I could be wrong. Either way the menu is reasonably priced. North of DeGraw on Columbia.

Carroll Gardens rut...its a good thing!!!

Hey all, new hound. I found this site thru Frankies 457 Spuntino. I just moved to Carroll Gardens a few months back, and I spend an inordinate amount of time dining at Frankies by myself. Another foodie from the neighborhood was eating at the bar and we started talking. I had a terrible experience at Schnack, and after relating it, he said "That sounds like a Chowhound post." So here, a few weeks later, I am. I have fallen into a pleasing rut of Lucali, Frankie 457, and Le Pit Stop Bistro. If I never found anywhere else, I'd be okay. But I have heard mixed reviews on Grocery, am wary of Patois since my Schnack experience, and want to know which restaurant on Smith was started by Mario Batali. Also any other suggestions would help, as I am new. I know this neighborhood is a foodie paradise, so where do you all eat????

Lunch around Red Bank NJ

I dunno about brunch, but The Little Kraut is a wonderful German restaurant with a great beer selection and authentic German dishes. The sampler includes a smoked pork chop that is delicious. Good schnitzel, too. It is right by the train station, shares the parking lot.
