Night & Day closes - "Biscuit" is coming...

Saw that Night & Day on 5th Ave. in Park Slope gave up the ghost recently (last night?). The windows are covered over and little signs say "Biscuit: BBQ, Live Music, and Margaritas" - coming in 13 days.

  1. I hope it's not a reincarnation of the previous spot on Flatbush. Quite possibly the worst bbq I've ever eaten in my life.

      Oh god I didn't even think of that possibility. But now that you mention it, what are the chances that another BBQ place called "Biscuit" would come along in this part of Brooklyn? Seems to me they must be related. Yikes.

    2. I heard that the chef from Biscuit, who also co-owns Sample, took over when the last chef at Night & Day was fired, so....

        Exactly. It was actually even in the NY Times. It's interesting because, as inept as Biscuit was, Sample seems to be touted by many on these boards and elsewhere. Hopefully, he'll emulate Sample and not the non-lamented Biscuit.

        On the other side of this, I am somewhat annoyed that Night and Day closed. I thought that the previous chef, from N.Orleans, had some potential there and the general concept of the place (readings, music...) was good as well. Even had a nice pedigree, with owners from Cornelia St Cafe and Lion's Head. Oh well.

      2. Chef Bobby Flay seemed to like Biscuit. He shot a Boy Meets Grill there and applauded their food.

          "Roker on the Road" did as well (I think it was one of only like 5 episodes that they continually rerun).

          They had passable sides, but the meat was miserable.

            I am so glad that I am not alone when I say that the food at Biscuit was horrific. Bordering on the inedible. Horrible. The fact that they even called it BBQ is laughable. I would not be surprised at all if this is the same joint. It goes to show you how much Al Roker knows about food. There is a reason the show is no longer. I am however glad to see Night and Day gone the way of the Dodo. Is this location cursed? Three restaurants in as many years?

            biscuit had a really excellent pr machine.

              Bobby flay is over rated and Biscuit SUCKED, no matter what he or Al Roker says.. These are people whose tv segment producers say to them,, hey lets do a segment in Brooklyn...and hey great says the host,, how quaint, BBQ in Brooklyn, and then they get there and of course are going to say, gee its great.

            2. And the biscuits inedible.

              1. the pies and cookies were top-shelf, but who knows if Maio Martinez is coming along to the new Biscuit... Also: the once a month whole pig roast never dissapointed.
