Excellent dinner for four last night at Argo on Coney Island Avenue between Ave P and Quentin.
Argo is a BYOB Georgian restaurant located in the Midwood/Gravesend area of Brooklyn (depending on which local map you believe). Outstanding value, excellent service and a very attractive room.
Highlights included pickled veggies, baked eggplant "rollitini" with a creamy cheese, a bread with fried egg in the middle - more on that later, chicken livers, pork/beef dumplings and homemade sausage.
The bread was the most interesting item of the night. Chewy bread with a nice crust, oblong shape with hole in the middle containing the fried egg. The yolk is broken, butter is added and it's mixed. The bread is broken and dipped in the mixture and eaten - absolutely delicious.
Dinner after a 30% tip came to $31 a person - outstanding value.
We arrived at 7pm and left just before 9:30pm. The place was completely packed all evening.
