Brü Craft & Wurst Has ‘Sneaky Fine-Dining Game Hidden Up Its Lederhosen’; Honey’s Sit ‘N Eat’s Grilled Ramps Are ‘Outrageously Delicious’

By

Adam Erace gives newly opened indoor beer garden Brü Craft & Wurst a whirl, and reports back that despite the frat-party stank on the place theres some sneaky fine-dining game hidden up its lederhosen. The hulking $48 mixed-meats-&-wursts platter sounds like a real wiener winner, and the house-cut fries are some of the best in town. But the meatballs rolled in flour before frying presented a pasty film that clung to their outsides like papier-mâché, and the fragrant spätzle had absorbed all their butter in transit, leaving them dry and cool.

With a bottle of Côtes du Rhône in tow, Phyllis Stein-Novack and hubby Edawrd check out the scene at Honeys Sit N Eats newly launched South Street location, where the matzo ball soups homemade broth twinkled with chicken fat, but was in need of a touch of salt. A platter of perfectly seasoned fried green tomatoes brought smiles all around; masterful grilled ramps with romesco sauce was outrageously delicious; but the brisket platter came up short with chewy albeit nicely seasoned brisket that did little to tempt [her] taste buds.
