The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

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.

Something's Jus Fishy on Flatbush

The Q's "gone fishing" til mid-August, but reader Steven B. sent me some swell pics of "JUS FISHY," the new eatery at 555 Flatbush near Maple. Check out the menu below. Share your thoughts on the joint here!

Looks good, but what is with the all the new neighborhood obsession with healthy juices? Sounds tasty but seems like a weird trend.

Following hard upon the Guccification of the neighborhood.

Jus Fishy isn't a juice bar; it's a fish and chips shop (there should be an apostrophe after the s in Jus, short for Just). I had their fried whiting fish and chips platter last night and it was very good - the fish wasn't overly battered and was tender and not at all greasy and the chips were typical (meaning fine). A good selection of steamed choices as well (although no whiting sandwich, as a disappointed would-be customer pointed out), a clean, nicely-decorated space (although that ramp into the place is a hazard - I saw two people standing at the counter step back too far and stumble onto it) with friendly service. A win for the neighborhood!

The health juice thing is not new in the neighborhood. There were some other, older juice places when we moved here that have since closed. I always thought it was a Jamaican/Rastafarian thing because of their beliefs about eating natural, non-synthetic foods and limited or no meats.

babs-the sign says Jus' Fishy Restaurant and Health Juices.

However, the only "juices" they have are bottled - and anon 9:37 is right - juicing is very much an Ital thing (as is vegetarianism). Check out Scoops for juices, food, and even vegan ice cream. Not a new thing at all.

I splurged and ordered a bunch of shark burgers, salmon burgers, sides, and irish moss and peanut punches today for a gang of people. Everyone loved their food. Jus Fishy has won our business for sure!
