Bonnie's

Finally got to Bonnie's on Saturday night. It was 11:30 and my husband, son and I were desperate for food after waiting for an hour in downtown Brooklyn for Triple A to help us put the spare on our car (long stupid story, half the jack was missing). Where to eat at such a time???? Of course. Not only is Bonnie's open till one a.m. on Saturday's, it was half-empty and totally friendly. We ordered chicken wings hot, which nearly defeated my 15-year-old but were crisp, greaseless and yummy. I had a special draft beer, some dark Belgian type which actually I found too sweet and faintly disgusting so switched to straight Brooklyn lager. The hamburgers were fantastic, v. rare exactly as ordered. however if I had known I would have asked for the mayo on the french fries on the side instead of dribbled over them and would have left out the lettuce and tomato because they were cold and brought down the overall burger temperature (not v. hot anyway because of being so rare). of course we had run out of steam before getting halfway through but found them still relatively scrummy warmed up the next day for lunch. All in all the sort of experience that makes one incredibly happy and grateful to live in New York.
