I have an interview at Brooklyn College coming up. Does anyone have any suggestions about placing to go for a quick lunch? It doesn't look like there are too many options. Thanks!

    Are you driving? If so, The Farm on Adderley is a few minutes away, and they open for lunch (except Monday) at 11:30. If you're taking the train-you can take the Q to Cortelyou for the restaurant, eat, and take the train another 2 stops to H and walk (but I'm not sure what entrances are open at Brooklyn College anymore.)

      Thanks everyone and no, I will not be driving. Walking or public transportation is a must!

      Near the train station on Nostrand Ave (from Brooklyn College, make a left on Nostrand) was this great West Indian restaurant that made really great rotis stuffed with goat, potatoes and chickpeas. Not sure if it's there anymore.

        Di Fara pizzeria but not so quick. Adelman's on King's Highway. Let me think of some more; I used to spend loads of time around there during HS.

            Everything that comes to mind keeps being rather far down. I used to go to a Georgian place for ei, but it's also on King's Highway.
