Village Voice's Description
Formerly of Queen’s Hideaway in Greenpoint, Lisa Queen is a maverick chef prone to tinkering with her menu – so don’t expect the dishes mentioned here to be available when you visit. The emphasis at this sophomore spot is once again on Southern cooking done in newfangled ways, with lots of vegetables and seafood. And you’ll find bacon nearly everywhere. We especially dug a puffy fried Dutch pancake with goat cheese, herbs, and honey; a salad of plums, cukes, and radishes with a verbena dressing; and a “tartlette” filled with egg custard and heaped with corn salad and tender beef tongue. Crazy, huh? The interior is spare and handsome, the antithesis of her last place, which was frowsy and cluttered.
Tips from foursquare
Smart, seasonal takes on Southern and regional American aren't flawless, but great service and thoughtful cooking make this a solid neighborhood spot.
I love this place so much! The food is eccentric and phenomenal. You can clearly taste the love in every dish. Go for brunch or dinner. You won't be disappointed.
Soft shell crab sandwich is splendiferous AND uses actual Maryland crabs (I was the fuckface who asked)
Lavender shortbread with blueberry compote, lemon curd and buttermilk sauce is phenomenal. Ask if it's still on the menu (last night it was a special item).
Fresh, farm to table menu, updated regularly. Delicious potato gratin with fried oyster small plate. Day menu looks even better...
