I just had the loveliest lunch at Brooklyn, a new spot on St. Viateur between St. Laurent and Casgrain. While I’ve never been to actual Brooklyn, I’d imagine this place isn’t far off from what you’d find along the gentrified streets of Williamsburg. It’s small counter and even smaller seating area provides for an intimate place to people watch while you enjoy your lunch. While you’re waiting for your order, make sure to walk around the design studio in the back – Brooklyn offers a really nice mix of vintage furniture and colorful home goods, all of which are for sale.
The trio behind the counter were kind and accommodating, doling out extra bread and refills for whomever asked. I love places that have that “something special” feel, and feel lucky that this one is only two blocks from my house.
