Brooklyn Cafe Restaurant Review

: An alum of Houston’s corporation, Jeff Trump and his partner, chef Mike Horosh, purvey an eclectic menu that relies for its success on pristinely fresh vegetables, 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 a brightly flavored gazpacho. Making a selection from the wine list is an exercise in guesswork. Order roast chicken, but you can’t figure out how to choose a glass of wine as you don’t know what seasoning is forthcoming. It turns out the chicken is too spicy for the one interesting white wine on the list, and there is no rosé, which would have hit it spot on. The large half chicken portion, the mound of mashed potatoes, and the beautifully flavored cooked carrots arranged whole against the potatoes make a complete comfort meal. For dessert, the carrot cake is a classic.
