Biscuits and Beer

I moved to East Flatbush over a decade ago and the landscape and name both have changed. I randomly saw this restaurant pop up near my house and decided to try it. I got an egg and cheese frittata sandwich, with smashed avocado and I added fried chicken. The egg was a little burnt, like bottom of pan. Chicken was cooked perfectly. I had a latte, it was amazing. I would go back try a hard cider, not a beer drinker.


On my drive home from work on Sundays, I pass this restaurant. I was meeting the girls for happy hour and figured we could try this place. The server was nice, but uninformative. When we decided to order food they were out of chicken. Like, no wings, chicken for tacos, no chicken in the building. They also were out of whole salmon, so the salmon tacos we ordered I’m pretty sure the salmon was from a can. It would’ve been been helpful to know that prior to looking at the menu. I ended up ordering nothing. My frineds got crab cakes, they were dry. Salmon tacos, they were ok but it was chopped up like tuna. Shrimp tacos, the shrimps were cut in half. Overall, very disappointed. I wouldn’t go here again on my own.

Cantina and Cantina Rooftop

I love Mexican and happy hour, this gives me the best of both worlds. I usually frequent the two Harlem locations, I decided to try the rooftop. With both Harlem spots, the vibe is chill, cold drinks and fast service. I order guacamole, elote, tacos and wings. I usually get flavored margaritas too. I like the variety of tacos better in Harlem. The view and service at the rooftop was the best. I liked the food and drink varieties better at the rooftop. I had a chipotle corn guacamole, chicken tacos(it was Taco Tuesday)and a frose drink in addition to my margaritas. I would go back to the rooftop and order my drinks and food the first shot.

Butter and Scotch, aka Drunk Bakers

I stumbled upon this place on Instagram. They’re known as the drunk bakers, they have the most insane cake sayings. Because the are a bar as well, I had to make my way. Went on Saturday evening, bar was full sat a table in the back. Browsed through the menu decided on a drink with mezcal and citrus. Usually not a big fan, I was hoping the citrus would make it interesting. It absolutely did, the drink also had a cute S stamped on it. The smores pie was absolutely divine. The torched marshmallow tasted almost like creme brulee. The brown butter cookie was the buttery and yummy. Popcorn got spicer as the bowl emptied. The funky saying cakes were not on display, it truly is a bar. They do serve almost all desserts, including boozy shakes and jello shots. I would go back to have actual cake. Everything I had was really good.


I’ve been here twice, once for an early dinner and the other for a late lunch. Their claim to fame is the hero bread which they get from Philly daily. I don’t eat red meat, so chicken steaks with provolone, peppers and onions for me. The bread was good it was soft. I had the Italian cheese fries, they were amazing. They came out first and pipping hot. The next time I tried the cheese fries, not my favorite. They have so many different fries, I will keep trying til I’ve had all of them so far the Italian ones are my favorite. I like hard cider, they have one on tap perfcet compliment to my meal. They just opened one in Brooklyn, so my next trip will be to that one.

Glow Thai

I saw a picture of a glowing drink online somewhere and followed it to this place. The ambience wasn’t anything special, I almost thought I had the wrong place. The drink menu was very creative, I had two of them. One was a glowy kind of green and the other was smoky and had crushed and vodka infused gummy bears. Both drinks were delicious. For appetizers mussels served with rice, could have easily been a full meal and soy garlic wings. I only had the broth and veggies, not into mussels but it was really tasty. The wings were temperature hot and so crispy, they were perfect. A half crispy duck and basil fried rice with chicken for main courses. The sauce the duck was in was so good, the rice was cooked with the perfect amount of heat I’m glad asked for mild spice. Anymore would have made it unenjoyable. For dessert, fried ice cream!!! I would definitely go back to try some other drinks and dishes.

Wings and drinks, Taproom 307

We were looking for something easy after work. I gave my homegirl three choices, this is where she chose.  I started with tequila and pineapple, ended with a margarita.  Nothing like guacamole and chips to accompany drinks and girl talk.  There were so many food choices, I stuck to my usual wings. We had three different types, fries and tater tots! I love those.  The buffalo wings were okay, the bbq were better, the asian ones were the best.  The ginger, the crispness the whole combo was good.  The other wings could have been cooked longer for me.  The drinks were drinks, happy hour always makes drinks taste better.  I’m not a beer drinks but the had a ton of beers, bottled and on tap.  The tables are all high ones, even the booths, I really liked that. I will be going back, there was some other menu items I would like to try.
