Kevin's of Red Hook

I've seen Kevin's mentioned in the Red Hook brunch thread - but to be honest i think it deserves a thread of it's own. This is really a great, great little place.

I went this morning with my GF b/c I had an itch for pancakes. I will certainly not be my last time. The size, decor, and overall "warmth" of this place immediately made me remember why I love this borough so much more than that other one across the east river. The menu, portions, quality, and price were all fantastic. I had the blackberry pancakes which were some of the best I've ever had - definitely better than anything in BoCoCa/Height/Slope. Big, fluffy yet dense, and just enough crispy texture on the outside. The side of bacon I ordered was cooked perfectly. Extra crisp but not remotely burnt. A large pot of Stumptown coffee is always a plus too. My GF had the Mediterranean salad which looked nice - humus, spinach, grilled pita, stuffed grape leaves.

Anyway - the bill came out to $21 before tip, which I thought was very reasonable given the quality of food. We took a glance at the dinner menu and decided we'd back by the end of the month.

I can't speak for dinner, but I would highly recommend checking this place out for brunch. Next time I'm either getting the Chesapeake Eggs (Eggs Benedict w/ Crabcake instead of ham) or the cornflake crusted challah french toast. Yum!
