Little D Eatery
Little D Restaurant bills itself as a meze restaurant and that is just what it is. A smallish non- descript South Slope spot with a garden in rear serving small plates. I have eaten here for both lunch and dinner and always found the food very tasty and the staff friendly. I ate here for brunch this weekend and had a fantastic Turkish breakfast. My breaky included a hard-boiled egg, house made bread, Turkish cheese, olives, nice red tomatoes, cukes, and house made preserves. WOW! Very fresh ingredients cut up on one plate and delicious bread with rosemary as well as blueberry and orange preserves created the ultimate savory-sweet Mediteranian style meal. The cheese was feta-like though firmer. All this for $9. bucks. All the eggs dishes served are made with eggs from cage free hens. Both the eggs and pork are from NYS farms. Other dishes like Pork Butt Hash and scrambled eggs with biscuits sound extra hearty. Sweeter fare like Big apple pancakes with cinamon butter and NY maple syrup sound yummy too. The brunch menu includes a few dinner items like a small or large size Mac and cheese with cheddar, parmesan, gruyere and breadcrumbs as well as the arugula and butternut squash salad. Next meal there I am primed to try the caramel bread pudding with roasted pecans hopefully in the garden on a warm day.
