Brooklyn Star

Teeny, wainscotted space that dishes upmarket Southern classics or classics reinterpreted. Tables on the perimeter of the room surround a communal table in the middle. Seating is not optimal, though some of the food is worth the cramped arrangement. We ordered the recommended cornbread which is served made to order in a cast iron skillet, hot out of the oven for $4. My dish of country fried steak with mashed potatoes, served with warm slaw for $15 was outstanding. Crispy coating on the steak with creamy gravy and lovely warm slaw was created a little food envy . A side of creamed corn served with smoked trout for $4 was the perfect sweet/salty contrast. My friend's barbequed catfish was slightly underseasoned though served with a side of creamed corn and deep fried cukes redeemed the dish. There was only one dessert which was the deep fried apple fritters pictured above with vanilla ice-cream and sugared pecans for $6 which was to die for. Deep fried meaty apples paired with creamy ice-cream and crunchy sweet sugared pecans was delectable.
