"Welcoming" "neighborhood vibes" and "terrific" "comfort food with a twist" make this "quaint" Carroll Gardens New American an "absolute fave", especially for brunch; since reservations aren't accepted, the peak-time waits can be "excruciating" – but "well worth it" to most.
Located at the south end of Court Street in Carroll Gardens (an area known for its great restaurants) Buttermilk Channel is a neighborhood favorite for upscale comfort food, served in an elegant, farmhouse-inspired dining room. The menu's main attraction is the expertly crisped buttermilk fried chicken with cheddar waffle fries and slaw on the side. But there's also foie gras and country ham terrine, duck meatloaf garnished with parsnip, ginger puree, and star anise sauce, slow-roasted pork spareribs and daily specials, ranging from Berkshire pork to Rhode Island lobster. The New American bistro continues the farm-to-table tradition of its name (the original Buttermilk Channel is a nearby waterway, once used to ferry dairy products from farms on Governors Island to Brooklyn) by sourcing organic steak, lamb, chicken and fresh produce from local farms, such as Jamison and Painted Hill. Deals like the three-course Monday prix fixe and free corkage on Tuesdays keep young professionals who live nearby, as well as city-dwellers from farther afield, coming back for more. Like most restaurants in the neighborhood, weeknights are your best bet for securing a table for small parties; on the weekend, be prepared to wait up to an hour.
