Don't you just love it when you've been thinking about something and it suddenly appears. Well, we have been meaning to visit this restaurant for many moons and for whatever reason the food demons have prevented us. Well, we arrive at the prospect park bandshell promptly at 8 and died right at the entrance to the bandshell when we witnessed the line to enter our proverbial backyard. Who are all of these people and how dare they not miss the non-stop advertising of the Janelle Monae concert to Celebrate Brooklyn?
We were so famished that we ventured back to Prospect Park West to seek nourishment. We use the term "nourishment" lightly as the only thing in sight is a good-old NY hot dog stand. We ordered a hot dog with mustard and a peach Snapple iced tea. It gave us just enough sustenance to cook up a plan. With hot dog on the breath we did what any hot-blooded attractive women would do. We found the first single guy in line walked over put our hands around his waist and said, "there you are honey". Gotta love NY. Next thing you know we are in and off to the beverage line to thank the Good Samaritan our "long lost beau" with a cocktail. Two Budweiser Lime-a-Rita's, a glass of Pinot Grigio and let the festivities begin.
Oh my, what do we spy? The food Gods are here to redeem us. The Farm on Adderley is offering a delightful snack for parkgoers and with a pretty price to boot. Janelle Monae is thumping out a tune, the crowd is vibrant and we are about to have another intimate food experience. We almost forget about the concert but it will be a lovely backdrop to our meal. We ordered the guerrilla fries and codcake sandwich. We might have been really hungry or the guerilla fries were that good because our plates were empty and we found ourselves back online ordering yet another order. Delish is all that is left to say. The codcake was seasoned just right on a soft potato bun with siracha mayo. The guerilla fries were seasoned with chili salt and was accompanied with life-destroying chilli-mayo. That is the only way to describe it. And if that wa not enough at the end of the concert we scored free sandwiches. Tonight was a very good night.
