The best brunch in Park Slope.
Get in line early, even when there's a jackhammer penetrating cement outside the door, there is a thirty-minute wait- even for the bar counter.
Stone Park puts me in mental turmoil each time I consider the menu between my fingers- Blue Fish Cakes or Biscuits and Gravy?
I then negotiate with Vadim. We choose two and share. Right down to the celery root slaw with capers and the braised greens with the Biscuits, each flavor is appropriate, well matched and absolutely divine. The brunch cocktails are also excellent. The Bloody Mary boasts a colorful garnish and robust flavor, the Bellini is refreshing and light- not too sweet.
The dinner selections are also excellent at Stone Park, although I tend to prefer their brunch. Desserts- a good late night option, but not as an end note to what I feel is already well-balanced experience.
The outdoor seating is now open! As well they are featuring a $30 Prix-Fixe tasting menu at this time.
