If I go again there will be nothing new, I think.
Is that not even more true of L’Ambrosiise? And part of the reason that you can remember it’s dishes so well (as they never change)?
For what it’s worth I can remember almost every dish we ate at BF in May (and the frozen soufflé was the most memorable dish I had all year, I think, pushed by L’Ambroisie’s wild strawberry dessert). And I can still remember a number of the dishes from our previous visit four years ago.
I’m not sure any of this goes to the original point, in any event, that Brooklyn Fare seems somewhat underrated (whether against other “SP style” restaurants or otherwise). Orik’s point about BF’s inability/unwillingness to cosset regulars/VIPs may be relevant?
