A small Bushwick bistro run by a couple from Vermont, a region of which for whom the place is titled. The name of the game here is whole-animal cooking, and so committed is the place that they even follow the life of the animal in question at times. If you are unnerved by this kind of intimacy, or by some of the odd parts of the beast you aren't used to seeing, this probably isn't the place for you. But serious carnivores should attend to it.
Citysearch Editorial Review – This hip, rustic oasis surrounded by industrial buildings serves homey fare like grass-fed hamburgers, mac and cheese, chicken pot pie and handmade sausage; live music and DJs are regularly featured downstairs in the den.
Best Resturaunt in Bushwick – I just moved right around the corner from this place, and i love it. Its a quiet, cool atmosphere for west Bushwick/east Williamsburg locals, and the food is outstanding. Its a very tiny menu, limited selection-but it is all good! Will be going back very soon
Best Bite in Bushwick – This place is incredible! I live right around the corner from the "Kingdom" and can honestly say that after having eaten there countless times, I've never been bored. The staff is friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is incredible and cozy, and best of all their food is out of this world. It's a french-american, home-cooked fusion cuisine with a small but perfected menu and daily specials to entice old veterans like myself. I would definitely recommend this place...it's work the trip out to Bushwick.
Escape from typical Bushwick dining – Traditional American food with a hint of gourmet. Nice atmosphere, great spot to take mom and dad when visiting or grab a glass of wine with a friend. The pour is usually pretty generous too! I have never been dissapointed with an entree and the menu has recently been updated (finally). The BLT is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Brunch ends around 3 but they're usually out of food by 1 and out of tables always (annoying, but speaks well for the brunch). Staff is very friendly, however, very slow....that's my only gripe. Great place, wish we had more like it here in "East Williamsburg" (just call it Bushwick, you're not fooling anyone.
to the delivery review below... – if you're out of delivery area, you're out of delivery area. you already stated that you were placing your order late in the shift, why is it so inconceivable that they aren't happy about delivering out of area so late in their shift? was it too far for you to walk there and pick it up yourself? then assume it is also an inconvenience to those who are probably trying to close down for the night. quit complaining that they didn't hide that they were put out by doing what amounted to a favor to you and thank your lucky stars they did it in the first place. also: $15 is pretty much an accepted minimum. basically, what you're saying is that places should bend the rules for you regarding delivery and minimums late in the shift and do so with a friendly smile. not going to happen. welcome to brooklyn.
oh, and the food here is delicious. eat there! you won't regret it.
wonderful neighborhood place – in response to last review, i wanted to put in my two cents. i live in the neighborhood and i know northeast kingdom stopped delivery in late october. not sure if this person wrote the review after delivery stopped but the restaurant was definitely not delivering on halloween.
Yummy but bipolar – The food was flavorful/addicting, the service however, was not. I was visiting a friend from out of town & had been out ALL DAY & was famished. My friend just moved in & there was no food. She was working & I had no one to direct me around Bushwick. I Google "Bushwick takeout", 2 places came up. NOT similar to my previous visit in Williamsburg where I had to close my eyes & pick a place. After picking the only place that was listed I reviewed the menu & it sounded delicious. I gave them a call. I knew it was late & asked if they were still serving even though they closed in an hour. The hostess said--no problem. I went one step further--could you still deliver? Sure. She starts asking for my info. When she realized where I was (which while talking to her I map quested it just to make sure how far since I had no idea where I was in relation) her polite tone changed immediately. She snottily replied, "Um, that's too far." When I pointed out to her that map quest stated it was 1 mile & 5 minutes away she STILL said it was too far. Suddenly, tone to polite, "Wait, let me ask". She says the delivery guy was cool, he really didn't mind. I felt bad & told her it was fine, there was no need. She assured me it was fine. Tone changed AGAIN & the whole time I gave her my order, would snottily repeat the order back like she didn't understand or couldn't hear me. My total came to about $14 plus change. Snotty came back with, "Um, we have a $15 minimum." Because Miss Thang couldn't have told me that before placing the order, I had to add a soda. When our conversation was over she reminded me ONE MORE TIME that, "Just so you know for next time, IT'S TOO FAR." So my food finally arrived & after I gave the delivery bike guy a generous tip, he turned around before mounting his bike & sharply stated, " JUST SO YOU KNOW, THIS IS TOO FAR." Service was definitely not impressive, but the food was to die for. If you could just ignore the folks behind the curtain, it's a great place.
FUN – Good food & attentive waiters, especially in Bushwick, what more could you ask for? Brunch could get busy but it's worth the wait.
Worth a trip to Bushwick – There is no place I've found in New York City with an atmosphere like Northeast Kingdom- it's very laid-back, dimly lit with decor reminscent of a ski lodge. The service is good, attentive but not overly involved in your meal. The food is consistently delicious- the macaroni and cheese, spinach and roasted eggplant salad and seitan reuben are all excellent. I've also never been disappointed by their daily soups, like hot and sour with cabbage and roasted red pepper chickpea. Their brunch menu is also very good, but it tends to be very hectic for brunch and service can be a bit slow. I highly recommend Northeast Kingdom- it's worth the trip to the outskirts of Bushwick for a great atmosphere, good service and high quality, well prepared food.
