Night and Day report

Gigi | Jul 9, 2005 11:39 AM

Compared to the restaurant that was at this Fifth Ave. and President Street location previously (Bibi's), "Night and Day" would be the way to describe it! One of the newest upscale eateries along Park Slope's booming Fifth Ave., Night and Day is on par pricewise with nearby Tempo and Stone Park, serving what I would describe as Eclectic American cuisine, paired with a good wine selection. My husband and I ate there on a Friday night and in short, we loved it. We shared the Cinnamon Poached Pear Salad ($9)which was a nice starter and big enough for two. For our entrees, I had the Pan-roasted Organic Chicken Breast with Wild Greens ($15) which was succulent and tasty. I ordered a side of Wasabi Mashed Potatoes ($5), expecting the entree to be much smaller than it was. But to our delight, the portions were generous as well as beautifully presented. The potatoes could have done with a touch more wasabi for my taste, but were nonetheless melt-in-your-mouth delicious. My husband ordered the Peppercorn Crusted Tuna ($23) which was about twice the size of the cut at Brooklyn Fish Camp. For dessert, we shared the English Trifle ($7) with fresh berries which was also a terrific. We walked out spending nearly $100 -- which seems strangely standard along Fifth Ave. these days (gulp!), but we found the value/price ratio at Night and Day to be a bit better than some of the others. We look forward to the sky-lit performace space they are building out back which is due to open in the Fall.
