Last minute birthday dinner, Woodland

I usually write about places relatively quickly, this not usual.  My mother’s birthday is in July, this tells how how long ago I went.  We didn’t have a place in mind, just an area. We parked on Flatbush and walked until we found a menu that peaked my mother’s interest.  She doesn’t eat meat, so there has to be a decent fish or vegetable selection.  This place is woodsy and rustic, floors, tables, chairs and even the bar.  It was hot we all ordered strawberry lemonade, made with fresh puree, makes such a difference.  Only one of us got an appetizer,  butternut squash soup.  It was flavorful and piping hot.  I ordered the charred Cornish hens with apple/fennel slaw. My mother ordered the whole branzino, with spinach. My sister had burger with truffle fries.  We ordered roasted broccoli and duck fat red bliss mash. All the sides were really good. The hens were amazing, you could taste the grill. The fish and burger were okay.  We had a few desserts,  hot apple crumb with vanilla ice cream, red velvet cupcake and beignets. The beignets were divine,  the apple crumb being served warn was a help.  Nothing about this place expect the ambiance would have me go again. My meal all in all was good, there wasn’t anything else that really grabbed me. It maybe good for a beignets and a drink after work.
