Fun-filled, clean, neighborhood restaurant and bar..
Soon after PSbklyn opened, I wandered into this restaurant and bar on Union Street, with nothing but time on my hands and a hunger for good beer and decent food like Ptolemy had for refractive displacement.
I took a look around and I saw groups of customers -- families, friends, dates -- sitting in the principal dining area, and I noticed two remaining seats at the bar were open, so I headed on over before I was shut out. There were two bartenders on duty that night, and both were friendly and helpful without being pushy. I ordered an IPA, and asked for a menu. While I was considering whether to get a couple of appetizers, or what looked like a damn fine burger, I initially failed to notice that the stool next to me at the bar was now taken.
"What're YOU gonna have tonight?" an attractive Park Sloper quizzed me.
"You come here often?" I responded, with an irony-free look on my face that I'd been practicing for a couple of weeks.
"First time, but I like what I see here. What're you drinking?" she asked.
Before long, we decided to share some appetizers -- spring rolls, cocktail franks -- AND a burger. The food was simple, clean and good. While we ate, we talked and talked and talked. The manager came over to us and asked whether we liked the food and atmosphere, and then proceeded to tell us about the start-up and how good the opening weeks of business were. I liked the guy, and liked PSbklyn, and I was really beginning to like my new friend.
After we finished eating, my new friend and I stepped out onto Union Street and headed back up to my place. When we got to Seventh Avenue, we turned around to look at PSbklyn. I then looked at this beautiful woman standing next to me, and putting my arm around her waist, I recall saying, "Honey, we're going to be heading back to PSbklyn. Soon."
