Mile End Brooklyn Reviews
Mile End-delicatessen Jun 12, 2010
A new buddy of mine has been raving about poutine from his bike trips to Montreal for the past months now. So for his birthday, I thought it charmingly thoughtful that I should surprise him with an outing to Mile End, which culminated with the heart attack on a plate that is poutine.
Crisp fries swimming in gravy, amidst lumps of cheese curds, with the option of topped smoked brisket shavings for $11.00USD, brought pleased smiles, a hug, and texts later about the beef. Apparently poutine is not the art form that was served to him at Mile End, it's typically more of a "sub-diner" fare. I myself, never had the original but it certainly was fatty, savory goodness. The iced coffees, necessary in muggy summer New York, were fair trade.
The decor is chic-ified Montreal french delicatessen. Sure there are picnic tables and a counter but the look is quite insouciant modestly stylish, understated gleaming, with open doors and windows to gentrified Boerum Hill of Brooklyn.
You can order at the window with your dog in tow to continue your shopping round the neighborhood. Prices are usual for the area, over $10.
The bagels are straight up Montreal, sweeter than the NYC counterpart.
Part of the list NYC-Brooklyn
