Brooklyn, NY 11231
Village Voice's Description
In the shadow of the Gowanus Expressway further down Court Street than you've probably even been before, Buttermilk Channel is named after the foamy body of water between Governor"s Island and Red Hook. The long menu tends toward comfort food, and the charcuterie, some of it homemade, is a strong point. The bistro also plays the locavoric card, with locally made cheeses and locally grown vegetables. Then there are oysters and sausages and daily specials, and sometimes it"s all too much for the kitchen to handle. Luckily, most things are done well, like the squash tart, the burger, and the duck meatloaf--which doesn"t really taste all that different from a regular meatloaf. For dessert, don"t miss the lush and chocolately praline sundae. Separate vegetarian menu.
Tips from foursquare
The chicken and waffles is ridiculously good
If you order anything but the Fried Pork Chop for brunch, you're really missing out (okay, maybe the poached eggs too). Bloody Mary's (even the one with the oyster) are just so-so...
Incredible fried chicken and cheddar waffles. Great Sunday brunch and huge juicy burgers.
Buttermilk Channel totally respects vegetarians, be sure to check out the special menu. - Inspector
