The Farm at Adderly
Located on a burgeoning strech of Cortelyou Road in Flatbush a block from the other popular restaurant Picket Fence, this farmhouse spot is bangin'. Lavender walls and new burnished brown tin ceilings add to the relaxed Brooklyn vibe. An outdoor garden awaits a warmer day. Brunch is a family affair with couples and kids from the nabe and beyond. Expect to wait and for good reason. The food is super and pretty reasonably priced. Lot's of egg dishes like chicken apple sausage, eggs any style home fries and a salad for $8. Smoked bluefish cakes with a fried sunnyside egg, salad and spicy tomato mayo for $9. I had the farm burger with cheddar on an English muffin with fries, and a small salad of Boston lettuce, plum tomatoes and Kearney cukes which was $12. This was one juicy burger and really went well with the English muffin, I usually remove the bun even a good brioche one. The fries were semi skin on and fried to a golden browned perfection and well salted. The little salad had really red plum tomatoes and although I had never heard of Kearney cukes they were crunchy good. I have eaten here for dinner too and the food always rocks. The desserts observed at the next table at brunch looked pretty yummy especially the apple crisp with vanilla ice-cream and the butterscotch pudding with chopped graham crackers on top. The bathroom is another shabby chic affair with a weathered dresser to boot.
