Woodland in Brooklyn
Four of us went last night before the Nets game @ Barclay's.
Very nice space.
Tasty French onion soup but it was was barely hot.
Excellent entrees, Pork Shank, Lamb chops, Salmon & Mushroom dish.
Ditzy server forgot our side orders, took away our half finished drinks and disappeared after she brought the check.
Totally odd: They don't have any artificial sweeteners for coffee or iced tea!!
The owner of one of my favorite North Fork restaurants does not like straws so you can't get a straw in your drink. No Splenda or Sweet and Low?? Odd!
We went to Woodland for the first time on Friday night.
All we got were burgers. I ordered mine medium--it came out closer to well done. DGF order medium rare--it came out closer to raw. My burger seemed overworked... the texture was tough.
The product doesn't justify the prices, either. Draft beers were $7-9. The very mediocre burgers were $14, I think. It felt to me like the owner is simply trying to cash in on the proximity to the arena.
I doubt we'll be back.
