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.

OUR Botanic Garden Entrance Opens Again But Food Now Sucks
But the Q has a bone to pick. What's up with the new "Yellow Magnolia" bullshit? I've been eating at that wonderful Garden cafe, and LOVING it, since 1989 when I got a job for $19,400 a year working at The Brooklyn Museum. Then some crappy zeitgeist caterer comes in and totally messes it up. The chili sucks. No more burgers. No Chunky Chicken Salad. The Hot Dog is too skinny. The salads are...weird.
Anyone else bummin'?
