Chefs Scott Schroeder (American Sardine Bar) and Pat O'Malley (ex Balthazar Bakery in NYC) keep it "creative" yet simple at their "friendly" American brasserie on a Queen Village corner, where "special" baked goods and cafe-style breakfasts/lunches segue into "delicious, unusual" sharing platters and small plates at dinner; a "local" crowd frequents the "laid-back" , brick-walled environs, with a "lovely" bar pouring draft wines and beers.
