The old Kaosan site is being taken over by a new dairy restaurant called Amor of London. They seem to be redoing the place, and the posted sign says Restaurant, Pastries, Desserts. No mention of when it's due to open, but I guess that it obviously won't be until after Pesach.
I also peaked into the Circa-ny on Ave. J. It's really attractively decorated, and the menu looks fresh and interesting. Does anyone know if the menu in the upstairs restaurant is different than the downstairs cafeteria style place?
Also, has anyone checked out the Madison Cafe on Nostrand Ave.? I've heard it mentioned, but haven't seen the place or heard if it's any good. Any comments or critiques, as well as leads to any other new Brooklyn restaurants would be appreciated.
