Brooklyn Star

Ack, this should’ve been posted more than a month ago. Chalk it up to summer laziness. Apologizing beforehand for the crappy photo quality, the interior was only dimly lit with candles.


A visit to Brooklyn Star, in Williamsburg.

Highlights included strange-looking fried pig tails (of which I couldn’t manage a good photo) that tasted like buffalo wings on steroids. Crispy and fatty with a tang from the hot sauce.

And this: grilled asparagus with fried oysters, duck confit and topped with a poached egg.

Asparagus, fried oysters, duck confit, poached egg

Although I have to say my hands-down favorite dish of the night was the roasted marrow bones with texas toast, grey salt, and red onion marmalade.

God's butter

And to round out our feast, some bacon and jalapeno cornbread, which tasted even better when drizzled in honey. I die.

Yes, we are gluttons

Possibly the shortest restaurant review ever!
