New Menu Tasting at The Brooklyn Shuffle | An Experience
Before I start on the new menu at The Brooklyn Shuffle, a pat on my back for reaching 200 posts on LiG. :)
It has been quite a journey. Yes it has been!
The Brooklyn Shuffle last week launched its new menu. I have been there earlier at the beginning of the year, so when they invited me again for a tasting, I was more than happy to oblige.
The diner as usual is abuzz with activity almost throughout the day. Since V was also invited (yes, I didn’t have to ask, they invited him), we visited them on weekday during early evening.
V tasted the non-vegetarian, I tasted the new menu offering in vegetarian and kids stuck to fries and ketchup mess.
The new menu includes the introduction of salads and mains in both non-veg & veg options. They have also reduced their breads (sandwiches/ burgers) which were non-movers.
My only brief to the team was to serve smallest serving possible so that we could taste more and I left the choice of dishes to them.
The tasting started with 2 salads – Watermelon with Feta and Greek salad. The watermelon feta salad was slightly over sweet for my palate but overall good.
Greek salad was nice too. If you are looking for salads then both could be considered.
For the main course, V had Beef Steak done medium-rare, fried chicken with cheese fondue and roast chicken with mushroom pepper sauce.
V was quite happy with his selection.
In vegetarian, they served me Corn, Jalapeno crunchy potato steak with creamy pesto, char-grilled cottage cheese steak with red pimento sauce and mushroom ragout with brown rice.
For me the sauces both pimento & pesto were good but cottage cheese steak a total fail. It was rubbery & a misfit in an American diner.
The clear winner was mushroom ragout with brown rice. I highly recommend it.
We rounded off the meal with their ever-popular cheesecake & brownie with ice-cream. As expected they were both spoon-licking worthy.
Overall it was a pleasant evening. Vegetarian options are there but I would recommend this place more for non-veg options (as declared by hubby). You can stick to mushroom ragout, salads, sandwiches and burgers for veg.
Special thanks to Parth for being an attentive and gracious host. And thank you for inviting us.
