This week, the "little side street that could" has added a new restaurant to its mix. This little lunch counter offers a small menu of soups, sammiches, and a couple of pastas and main plates.
I wasn't particularly hungry this afternoon and ordered a feneska (sp?) soup, a nice vegetable based soup with mushroom, spinach, and little pieces of grain (looked like a small hominy). $2.50 for a 16-oz. container with a small hunk of bread.
The special of the day was Spanish tortilla over salad for $4.50 - sandwiches and entrees range from $4.75-$6.
Cute little place, seem to have some breakfasty type things (muffins, bagels, morning coffee).
Also to be found on Hoyt St. between Atlantic and State:
Brawta - above average Jamaican food
Fast and Fresh deli - very tasty Mexican food - yummy tacos and good specials on weekends
Kili - decent "apres-ski"-type lounge w/ fireplace, though it has gone downhill since opening.
Victory Cafe - above average coffee (for the 'hood) and sometimes really yummy empanadas... also, strangely addictive "panini press" bagels - gummy and warm and oh so buttery...
