When I looked up and saw this delightful apartment entrance on Driggs Avenue I swooned. I mean, who wouldn’t want to live in a place called “Novelty Court”?* In any case they don’t build ’em like this anymore.

*Well, probably not Frank Serpico for starters (see comments).

Presenting Latitude Zero

As I mentioned earlier I elected to while away “Super Bowl Sunday” not in front of a television screen but on the streets of north Brooklyn. This was an excellent decision as I not only spied delightful stuff like this, this, this and this:

Latitude Zero. My love of Latin American cuisine trumped my hatred of the B-word so I went inside to see what’s up.

I grabbed the last take-out menu they had on hand and struck up a conversation with the co-owner of this establishment (who was in the process of printing out more menus). She informed me they have been open for about a month now. After perusing their menu I voiced my pleasure at how many vegetarian items they had for the picking. The proprietress explained to me that although her partner in business (and life) was a meat eater she was not and their aim was to build a menu that would be appealing to everyone. With such diverse offerings as:

  • Vegan spicy black Bean and cilantro soup
  • Avocado and ginger vichyssoise (not vegan)
  • Hand cut fries with habanero mayonnaise
  • “Chonta Duro”: a vegan ceviche consisting of hearts of palm, mango, avocado and red onions
  • “Salmon Miso-Honey”: miso-honey glazed salmon with baby bock choy
  • Palak paneer
  • Fish tacos and meated fare like…
  • Hamburgers (I have been assured veggie burgers will be forthcoming), chorizo, and steak

I’d say they’re on the right track. This will be on my short list of new restaurants to check out with the Mister.

From the look of things I’d say this person’s fund raising effort was either successful enough to merit dispensing the signage or he simply gave up.

P.S.: On a related note when I walked by this encampment (on Berry Street) last night I shit you not they were watching an evening news feature about the economy. And chuckling quite heartily.
