Henry St. in Brooklyn Heights
So has anyone tried The Busy Chef (prepared foods, in the old Food Maestro location) or Uncommon Grounds (coffee place near Cranberry's)? I walked by last night but both were closed.
Busy Chef was open yesterday (Monday) around 6. I picked up what they called pulled pork barbecue. It was awful, and it was $10 for just a plastic clamshell of barbecue, no sides. It wasn't actually pulled, but chopped with big chunks of fat, and oversauced with a fake smoke flavor. I should have known better, but I was shopping while hungry and the idea of 'cue was appealing.
A friend brought us some food from the Busy Chef.
- Macaroni and cheese was good, but nothing mind-blowing.
- Stuffed peppers were good, but nothing mind-blowing.
- Veggie lasagna was okay - a little gloppy but tasted okay.
- Fish sticks were cute (in the shape of little fish, which our 2yo liked) but not that good.
I don't live near there so I don't know how their prices are, but I'd certainly experiment a bit more if the prices aren't that bad.
