Quick Gravy report

Had a quick dinner at this new place at Smith and Pacific in Boerum Hill.

Mostly simple stuff with a slight Southern twist, I had a Reuben and my fiancee had a burger. The potato salad that accompanied my Reuben was vinegar based and was actually pretty good. (Big hunks of bacon in it.) The reuben had very thick slices of corned beef, and the sauerkraut was cooked w/beer in it. It was actually pretty tasty, though they might switch to another beer for the kraut. (It had a slightly off aftertaste.)

The burger, which I didn't try, seemed good - it was likened to the burgers served at the Bohemian Hall in Astoria, but fresher. I happen to like those burgers, so I may give 'em a try.

Two sandwiches, a Coke, and a slice of above average Bourbon Pecan Pie came to $22 w/o tax, tip.

Good neighborhood place, but I doubt a destination. Some interesting things end up on the menu, too. A beef on weck sandwich (is Harding from Buffalo?), a Turkish watermelon, feta, and mint salad (I'm intrigued), and bratwurst. I think the most expensive menu item was steak served with "English bone marrow gravy", whatever that is (sounds tasty).

I'll go back when I'm hankering for a quick bite to eat. Oh - the service was fine, the music decent (I did notice turntables, though), and they serve most of the menu until 2 am. Bonus!
