    Everything is good here,particularly the atmosphere and company with wife, Alicia, daughter, Joanna and son in law, Mark. Those two live in Park Slope neighborhood. Had organic eggs, steak. Deelish!

    Yummy neighborhood brunch spot with a classic menu (and some twists) that changes with the farm-to-table seasons. Can't go wrong with french toast, pancakes, fried chicken, or omelettes on special.

    Very good and reasonably priced food, especially considering that the ingredients used are all from local and sustainable sources. They were also flexible about substitutions due to food sensitivities

    Cozy atmosphere. Great cocktails and delicious food. I recommend the scallops that were perfectly cooked with a pillowy cream sauce and the mussel chowder that was wonderfully spicy.

    Aside from the cute story behind the couple who owns this park slope gem & what it stands for, every dish brought out was nothing less than amazing. Start to finish, best rest exp one could ask for.

    Delicious! I'll come back for sure. The scallions were to die for, the Atlantic mahi mahi and the devils food cake. The staff is amazing, beautiful restaurant.

    Try the Roasted VermpntLamb Sausage With Lamb Croquette, Lentils - Just had leftovers from one of THE best meals I've ever had in NYC. New menu every single night. Mind-blowing!

    A favorite. Venison sausage, short ribs, great local fish and seasonal risottos. Also live their house infused liquors and craft cocktails.

    The pork belly, caramelized onion and mustard greens omelette was literally the best omelette I've ever had in my life.

    The farmer-owned restaurant is known (and loved) for seasonal, straightforward gourmet fare -- much of which is grown on the founders’ upstate farm.

    Bloody Mary's are on point, in a pint glass with a beer chaser. Short rib omelette was excellent, as were the grits.

    A longstanding farm-to-table restaurant that serves thoughtful American fare and does the term ‘neighborhood spot’ justice.

    Tried the pork belly omelet. Fantastic! Potatoes are crunchy and the portion is the perfect size. Love it here!

    They are EXTREMELY accommodating. I know what I like & sometimes places mix up what sides work best with what entree. Here, I can move things around and create the best dish. My FAVE restaurant ever!!

    As a TN girl, I was thrilled to order grits & biscuit with my brunch. Best bacon I've had in Brooklyn so far. And I. Love. Bacon.

    Tip: Creamy lobster broth...Note: The menu changes constantly, but if the pork is on it and you’re a practiced carnivore, order it. Read more

    Leave the waitstaff a BIG tip. They are definitely the nicest, most gracious lot around.To wit: mothers day-lots of waiting and annoyed patrons. But waitress supreme brings out biscuits+smiles. Aces.

    what a shame.once was a delicious, great restaurant for brunch is now just mediocre at best. Can't make my eggs right. They used to make the potatoes crispier with bacon grease. They burn the bacon.

    If they have the pork belly on the menu. Get it pronto. The skin was like and crisp. And will melt in your mouth like a shrimp chip.

    Very good farm to table style brunch. Oddly frustrating host though - multiple open tables but wouldn't seat us because "I didn't have spoons for you." What.

    Our server was terrible. She didn't bring our milk for coffee until I finished a cup already & stood there drying glasses while we waited for her to take our order. Food was subpar.

    Sorry, but I think this place is really overrated. The food may be sourced farm to table but it's execution and recipes just aren't that great.

    VERY family unfriendly, though say they are. No strollers inside, no changing table, and a policy of reprimanding crying babies. #aholes
