Eat. Pray. Love became my Mantra after reading the book a few years ago, but I may be in the process of changing it. But today, we are talking about Eat. Drink. Pong at Brooklyn Eats on Myrtle.
Yum, Yum, Yummie…Brooklyn Eats On Myrtle opens today, and I am excited to try their menu. It is November, and there is nothing like fun and comfort food. Based on its menu Brooklyn Eats seems to have done it right.
Located on Myrtle Street—the vintage-inspired theme bar & grill may be the perfect place to have a date night or a fun night with the girls or the guys. The owner’s philosophy was to create a place where “the community’s past, present, and future are valued.”
The concept of the menu is one that I find of great interest. Chef Tim Coughlan said:
“Everyone deserves fine food. Fine food doesn’t always mean fine dining. Fine food for me is the right food, at the right time, in the right setting. It’s comfort.”
I agree with you, Chef Tim; I believe that everyone deserves fine food—having it at the right time and in the right setting makes it sooooo much more delicious.
Brooklyn Eats on Myrtle received quite the welcome from their neighborhood on their grand opening last night. Although they had a full house, I had a wonderful experience. The staff held their composure throughout the evening—they were kind, attentive, and smiled often.
Saying the bar area was a madhouse is an understatement; however, Will, Emma, and Marcus were excellent; they gave every customer attention and still found time to check in with customers like myself to ensure we were ok.
The food was delicious—served in checkered paper containers on a lunch tray. At the time of service, I did not know how I felt about the lunch trays; however, as I type this update, I think it is the perfect complement to the checkered containers.
I ordered wings, potato poppers, fried pickles, and torta sliders. I enjoyed everything except the fried pickles—it was too oily. unfortunately, I was unable to try the eat “n” peel shrimp, veggie chili, and shrimp quesadilla, but they received so many orders they had to close the kitchen early.
Will you visit? I can not wait to visit again. When you do, share your experience with me.
