P– and I went to too many Brooklyn Restaurant Week restaurants. Marty’s restaurant week was an astounding success!
Worth another visit: Cocotte (French bistro cooking): excellent coconut-hinted bouillabaisse. Totally tolerant of having one latecomer to our party. Prix Fixe was a worthwhile value.
Worth waiting a few hours on the cell phone: Blue Ribbon Sushi (5th Av): sushi platter modestly sized, but absolutely satisfying and filling. Salmon had the most outrageous stripes of delicious fat, showing its excellent quality. Tip: get there to be on the waiting list early (no reservations), give them your cell phone number, and then hang out at Ozzie’s coffee across the steet. My friend Kam and her husband were also waiting there.
Not worth it: Baccus (Atlantic Av, French bistro): While the scallop appertizer was skillfully done, and the deserts were heavenly, the main dish (lamb ribs – 3 ribs yielding enough meat to make 2 chicken nuggets) was unimpressive. They also litterally left money on the table by forgetting to make our extra side orders, which would have been an additional 12 dollars.

Such a shame that I missed Brooklyn restaurant week – it went from Tax Day to the middle of the next week (why not end on a weekend night?) and the weekend in between was already occupied. Glad to know that it went well; Marty ought to do it again (although, I could have sworn that he’s the same Brooklyn politician who’s trying to get Brooklynites to lose weight – and I’m not winning on that score…!)
