Brooklyn Cafe Restaurant Review

: American comfort fare with the occasional Southern touch; a friendly bar; a frou-frou-free interior with some for-sale artwork on the walls; an almost wraparound outdoor dining space: that’s Brooklyn Cafe. Lifelong friends and business partners, Jeff Trump and chef Mike Horosh don’t depend on the razzle dazzle display of odd flavors or architectural plating to attract patrons. Grilled artichokes with rémoulade sauce for dipping make a good starter. The jumbo lump crab cake is pure crab, on a bed of whole-grain mustard sauce; we’d like the accompanying green beans a little more cooked, but can’t quarrel with the crab cake. For dessert, the classic Key lime pie, made in house, is among the best we’ve ever had. The value-priced wine list, many of its selections available at less than $50 a bottle, draws from a variety of sources --- American, South American, French, Italian and Spanish. The Laxas Albariño from northwestern Spain complements the aforementioned crab cake. Bring the kids; there are coloring books to keep them entertained. Reservations are a good idea even for weekday lunch.
