Flatbush Farm - good tuna belly and lamb

Hi Folks,

I ate at Flatbush Farm the other night and had an excellent and spicy tuna belly. And the lamb shoulder is terrific - comes with bubble and squeak. Anyone else had dinner there? The bar has been open for a while, but the restaurant next door just started. Also, one Riberia del Duero is very tasty.

  1. I agree Flatbush Farm has amazing food.I was there last week with a group of friends and we all thought it was by far one of the best meals we've had in a long time.
    I had the pork goulash,complete with homemade noodles and Heirloom Tomato salad.
    The space is really nice too,I will surely go back.

    1. Wait, where is this place? More info, please!!

        Its in the old Bistro St. Marks space - St Marks Ave between 6th Ave and Flatbush. Havent tried it yet.

          1. I really wanted to like this place. It is close by, has a good vibe. But, unfortunately, it comes across as amateur hour. But at top notch prices. I also had the goulash, which was good -- but at eighteen dollars a plate, a fairly modest or overpriced portion, depending on how you look at it. My friend had the risotto, which we had to send back because water was standing in the dish. For the same price, I can go to al di la and get some of the best risotto in NYC (and probably should have).

            1. Despite inconsistent reviews, we found Flatbush Farm to be a real gem. I can understand how someone could walk away having had a less-than-stellar experience, but this place is one that I would give a second chance. The food is above average, the decor is interesting, and they've got the right idea about service, if not the perfect staff. I imagine it can be very difficult to staff a restaurant with great people right away, so I always let service imperfections slide during the first six months or so. The general vibe here is a good one. It's definitely worth checking out!

                what did you eat there, eatout?

                Is this restaurant under common ownership with any of the other neighborhood places, do you know?

                  The Chef, Eric Lind, is formerly from Bayard's. I've had his food there many times and it is also simple and elegant with attention to preserving the fresh flavors of his produce. I can't wait to check out Flatbush Farm.
