The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Solid Sushi Comin' To the 'Bush
See that word "Deli" to the left of popular swillery Midwood Flats? That's about to become an outpost of popular sushi joint Silver Rice, a place that earned raves up above Eastern Parkway. So what do we know besides the killer reviews on the Yelp?
Heading over to their site the Q found just the description he was looking for. I find the verbiage charming to say the least. I suspect this will be a very welcome addition to the restaurant choices 'round here.
"We are Hideki and Sonny, long-time friends and the proud owners of Silver Rice. Both from Nagoya, Japan, we were brought together, of course, by food (free pizza at a hostel in Chelsea, to be exact). Combining our individual knowledge of the food industry, we started throwing around ideas to bring Japanese food culture to New York City. Ten years after we met, we opened the doors to our first restaurant: Silver Rice. We are thrilled by the positive responses of our customers and are excited to continue building our business partnership through additional ventures in the food industry."
thx Mindy for the tip!
