Brooklyn Cafe Restaurant Review: Schooled partly in the Houston’s corporation, Jeff Trump and his business partner, chef Mike Horosh, lifelong friends, offer an eclectic menu that relies for its success on fresh fare, rather than on some razzle dazzle display of odd flavors or architectural plating. Bring the kids --- there are coloring books to keep them entertained --- and savor lobster bisque. You may encounter a massaman curry on the menu that changes often, so the carrots and mashed potatoes that used to grace a fine roasted half chicken now appear with braised short ribs. For dessert, the carrot cake is a classic. The wine list has been expanded, and you'll now find it still chiefly drawn from American sources, but with the occasional French, Italian or Spanish selection in the mix.
