Tonight the Mister and I finally got around to giving Kestane Kebab a whirl. We were surprised by how busy they were for a Tuesday night. After we sampled their wares, however, we understood why: their food is absolutely, mind-bending delicious! Go. NOW.

Greenpoint Food Watch: A Menu & A Rumor

kestanethumbToday I walked to Kestane Kebab stomach a rumbling in the hope that they had opened. No such luck. However, they do have menus available to the curious and hungry. Naturally I grabbed one. As you will see (by clicking here) it is rather extensive (it even includes seafood) and has some of the most esoteric copy I have read in a long, long time. For example, item #28, a gyro:

Layers of marinated ground meat wrapped around the large vertical split and grilled in front of an ingenious herd of charcoal fire.

Who can argue with that? In all seriousness if any of you, dear readers, has the  scoop as to when this establishment will open please share. I am very eager to try it. “Ingenious herds of fire” and all!

In other news (well, of the rumor variety) some of you might have noticed that Paloma’s old space (60 Greenpoint Avenue) is at long last getting an overhaul. The the neighborhood buzz is an Italian restaurant is going to move into this space. Hmm…
