Village Voice's Description

Located on the western edge of East Flatbush, Cathedral is one of the New York City's most approachable Haitian restaurants, showcasing a cuisine that mixes African, French, and other diverse elements. Grillot (pronounced "gree-oh") is a case in point: a dish of pork chunks marinated in shallots and sour orange, boiled, and then fried in the lard that remains after boiling. It's a French confit, par excellence. "Legumes"--the word simply means "vegetables" in French--is a stew featuring carrots, greens, and turnips cooked into a thick sauce, in which bits of lambi (conch) are mired. Lambi itself in a bright red fricassee is considered the Haitian national dish, served with rice and pureed black beans. Located in a neighborhood with many Caribbean groups represented, it's not surprising that a Jamaican dish or two often appears on the daily menu at Cathedral. The small bright space has only three tables for dining in, but you'll find a very friendly welcome. --Robert Sietsema

    This is the right joint for some authentic Haitian food! Get the grillot: a confit of pork chunks marinated in sour orange and shallots, and cooked in pork fat. We're hungry just thinking about it..
