What do you do when you have access to a car for the day? Ummm, I drive to places that I can’t get to normally and eat, duh.
Brooklyn Commune has been on my radar forever. The chef (whom I’ve never met) has a special fondness for me, as we became acquainted on the internet many years ago and I have sent many people his way — including at least one cook, and some other people with whom he seemed to make a connection. He is actually the person who got me the reservation to Blue Hill at Stone Barns for my birthday a million years ago. So though we’ve never met, we’ve kept in touch a little bit over the years. When I finally got to Windsor Terrace – after traffic snafus and a bad GPS – I sat down, glanced at the menu, and knew immediately what I wanted for my first meal of the day.
Potato & egg: a girnomous potato pancake topped with two fried eggs, scattered with a tangy mixture whose name is escaping my memory at the moment. Believe that I ate the whole thing… it was delicious.
A beautiful space in a wonderfully out of the way community… if you’re able to, I highly recommend stopping by.
