Best Brunch in Park Slope?

I have actually never been disappointed with Stone Park and consistently return there for a great bloody mary and tasty brunch. I generally try to stick to Stone Park in the colder months as I love their biscuits and gravy which is an indulgence and puts you straight into a food coma following brunch but well worth it. However I went recently craving their bloody mary and had a delicious burger. While the wait can be long if you don't have a reservation, I've always found the service pleasant and the food and drinks relatively speedy. They event graciously accommodated a large group of us at several tables for brunch for my birthday and went out of their way to be helpful. I would give Stone Park another try or be vocal with them about your experience. The hangtown homefry (fried oysters), short rib hash, biscuits & gravy, and bluefish cakes with poached eggs have always gone over well at the tables I've sat at....accompanied by a bloody mary of course...

Lunch delivery or catering in Back Bay?

I am hosting a lunch in-house (in an office) in the Back Bay area next week. My company would like to bring in lunch for 15-20 people and I'm looking for suggestions that may be a treat (we're paying) beyond "sandwiches".

Mexican or Spanish food would be great or even great Asian Fusion or Japanese (looking to play off a "hot" theme at this event). Any recommendations or suggestions would be much appreciated!

Falafel

Check out Bedouin Tent on Atlantic Avenue in Brookyln. Their falafel plate or sandwich is awesome and their pita is made fresh to order...

Brooklyn Heights/DUMBO Dining Conundrum

I just checked out Hecho en Dumbo last night and was pleasantly surprised. The portions are definitely fairly small, but everything we had was quite tasty. I recommend the sampler platter for two or three people, it gives you a taste of most things on their menu, then you can build your order from there. Three of us drank beers and ate until we were satisfied (not stuffed) and spent $30 incl tax & tip which I thought was pretty reasonable. Would definitely drop by after work again for beers and bites.
