Well thats two count them two days in a row I've gotten here before 8:30. What's come over me? I think its just California time. Ha!
We ate at The General Greene in our neighborhood in Brooklyn the other night. It had the best review I've ever read from NY Magazine, so we decided to give it a try. It's also right down the street.

It was delicious. I'm not sure if it was as hype-worthy as the magazine suggested, but it was delicious. I wondered if it was surprise that led them to such a stunning review - a restaurant this good on Dekalb? Perhaps.

Either way - I've got two words for you: Candied Bacon. Like the sound of it? You'll love the way it tastes. This restaurant is a small plate type of place so you get to order a lot of things and share them. Super fun, because you get to try so many things. We had:
  • a salad made of edamame, asparagus and mint. YUM!
  • a twice baked potato (hello candied bacon, my old friend.)
  • Red couscous with walnuts and something else.
  • the steak with chimichurri sauce.
  • the baked beans (skip em, they weren't that good).
  • the deviled eggs. (for free b/c we had to wait so long for our table. Thanks a lot NY magazine!)
  • ooh my favorite - an iceberg wedge salad with blue cheese and, yup, you guessed it, candied bacon.
  • the prawns (I didn't eat them.)
I'd say go. Check it out. It's worth it and it wasn't that expensive. You go DeKalb!

Chim Chiminy Chim Chiminy Chim Chim Charoo,dude.
