Post-Bar Exam Celebration – Brooklyn Girl Eatery
August 11, 2012 Leave a comment
After three months studying for the bar exam, and existing primarily on coffee shop sandwiches, I am back…Kathleen and I have several posts to share with you. Enjoy!
The evening after the bar exam, Kathleen took me to the new Brooklyn Girl Eatery in Mission Hills. Brooklyn Girl has only been open a couple of months, but is already doing a booming business. There are several communal eating tables for which you do not need reservations, plus a bar area, and a dining room.
Our first court was clams casino. The clams were prepared wonderfully, and the broth was delicious. We did however get a small amount of grit.
For our main course we shared the Roasted Duck for Two in a Ginger and Honey glaze. Even with a roasted preparation the fat was rendered pretty nicely. The glaze was delicious.
Perhaps the most successful dish (and I never say this) was dessert. Kathleen had the Key Lime Pie in a Jar, and I had the Brooklyn Bomb Shell Brownie with Salted Caramel and Creme.
