On the way home tonight I realized... the last 3 places that opened in Brooklyn Heights... cafe del Mar on Henry & Atlantic, Thai 101 at 101 Montague (near Hicks) and Cafe el Cubanito on Henry and Cranberry... all 3 have gotten very solid reviews here on Chowhound.
No, they're not very Hound-esque. But either is this neighborhood.
And no, they're not get RAVE reviews, but I can't remmeber reading anything bad.
And no, they haven't received a ton of coverage...
but still, considering the endless dreck that opens up in the Heights (15 places I can think of in the last 5 years and rarely is one is a keeper) I think Brooklyn Heights might be turning a corner.
Dare I say it... we... might.. actually... be.. getting... decent... restaurants!
