Choice Market 02-22-2014

Location: 318 Lafayette Ave. BK
Time: 10:30am
People: RB and myself

Feelings: For years, this Clinton Hill neighborhood institution has attracted everyone from Pratt students to hipsters, strollers to dog lovers. The indoor communal table is almost always taken, but on a nice, sunny day, spacious outdoor benches become the perfect place for breakfast. With organic, responsible sourced ingredient, food is excellent here. The service is on the slow side, so prepare to wait if you order something from the kitchen.

Omelet ($7.99, served with roasted potatoes and mesclun salad) with spinach and goat cheese is perfectly fluffy and flavorful. The portion is large, and the food really fills up the entire container.

RB's "Eggs on chiabatta" ($3.15) with turkey bacon (+$1.45) is a fresher and tastier alternative to a standard deli breakfast sandwich.

There are various morning pastries here as well as burgers, salmon, BBQ wings, paninis, and salads. They also carry my favorite Brooklyn Roasting Co. coffee, which is a major plus. Make sure to try their famous BLT with rosemary aioli, which was featured on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" (by Ted Allen!) on the Food Network.
