Palo Santo 10-20-2013

Location: 652 Union St. BK
Time: 2pm
People: RB, CK and myself

Feelings: Palo Santo, an eclectic Latin spot on the ground floor of a brownstone in Park Slope is low-key, simple and excellent. Occupying a former church on Union Street is a narrow, casual space filled with beautiful designs and found objects. Good music kicks in as the sunlight floods the back room, occupied by many birthday parties and bridal showers. This is an ideal place for a small wedding or any parties you can imagine. The front area is perfect for a romantic date in a cozy, intimate setting without trying too hard.

Sandwiched between somewhere between Park Slope and Gowanus, Palo Santo caters from local families to young hipsters. Good ingredients without any gimmicks are appreciated by any neighborhoods, gentrified or not.

For brunch, $17 prix fixe is available, which includes: one brunch item and two drinks, coffee or tea and mimosa, sangria or juice. There is also three course dinner prix fixe at $29. "Farmer's Egg Sandwich" ($10 with yucca) is large in portion and satisfying without piling on unnecessary flavors.

RB's pork hash and eggs is tender and flavorful. RB is quite a harsh critic of a good runny egg, and this one gets the thumbs up.

The service is also excellent, and I would recommend Palo Santo for any group celebrations or casual brunch.
