Can't deny it any longer. A French restaurant is coming to the Flabenue, at 701 Flatbush to be precise, previously a bodega. Confirmation is in the liquor application that's made CB9's monthly General Board Meeting for tomorrow-Tuesday on the agenda below. Chef's name is Boris Ginet. He says of his new comfort-food joint specializing in poulette:
“[We hope to] reimagine the rotisserie experience, infusing this French traditional roasting style with the familiarity of the Brazilian staple churrascaria and the American ideations of comfort food. Various all-natural meats will be roasted in different culinary techniques, served with signature sauces and local, seasonal vegetables to create a cosmopolitan feel with minimalist, flavorful dishes.”
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.
