1 star and barely one star. OMG. Really cool interiror, nice bar at the back, good music, nicely lit, attentive service and....the reason we are all here....an amazingly creative, interesting menu. So what went wrong? Not being hungry but wanting to check out the place we ordered fawn-tons, pond wings, and marrow, slugs and polenta, and the lamb breast. (can you tell we like interesting?) Well, the fawn-tons came first and they were fried to a crisp and way too brown. My guess is they fried it so much to make sure the venison stuffing was cooked thru. And was there jarlsberg in with the venison? Who knew. It could have been any meat it was so flavorless. Thank goodness both our selections of wine were pretty decent. Next came the marrow, slugs and polenta. Delivered to our table were 2 dried-up looking (and it turns out dried tasting) over cooked small patties. Was there marrow in there? Was there escargot in there? Again Who knew? It was another part of what was turning out to be a totally bland totally mysterious meal. Pond Wings hhhhmmmmm. Now this was not mysterious at all but it was just sooooo spicy (can you guess where I am going with this) (and I grew up in the caribbean so I know HOT) that it was impossible to tell it was rabbit or to discern any other flavor....oh hold on a sec....was there any other flavor. Who knew? We certainly didn't. So what about the Lamb Breast? Well, I guess we should have been clued in as the first word in the description was "fatty". Well gee whiz. No mystery here at all. Guess what? What we got were lumps of fat, literally, with a bare sliver of meat clinging to the underside. Again, I grew up in a household where my mother revered fat and where fat was cooked so the outside carmelized beautifully and the inside was cooked thru and succulently delicious. These lumps of lamb fat were seared on the outside and just barely cooked on the inside. Ugh! Not good at all, even for a fat lover. Sad to say just how disappointing this meal was. The menu tantalizes with it’s creativity but as a prior reviewer states the execution leaves everything to be desired. And who are the diners giving 4 and 5 star reviews. Do you know anything about food at all or are you all your classic out-of-town yuppies with uneducated palates. Sorry this is such a damning review but what a shame, it was just soooo disappointing and my partner and I had such tummy aches the day after.

First off, I don't know if it's their "thing" or if they just haven't taken down the old awning, but it's underneath the old Indian restaurant entrance. I'm not from BK, but I was curious enough and wanted a place to go outside of Long Island, I found DoD on google. I'll say it's not for everyone, but if you're not a high maintenance person and like out of the box food, go here. We started with Nippon nachos and the squid. Nachos on dumplings, I mean - awesome? The squid was cooked perfect, the sauce was spicy and delicious, plated beautifully I might add. Next we split the chicken and waffles and the steak. Steak was a beautiful and tender mid rare and served with a pickled fruit/veg I couldn't place, but I loved. Chicken was crispy and delicious, and I have to say everything was reasonably priced - even drinks. I know it seems stupid to have a snickers ice cream bar on a dessert menu, but it really just encompasses the classy meets trashy feel... And yeah yeah you can go get one for 1.50 at the bodega, but they only charge a whopping 3.00... Not the end of the world. I truly enjoyed my visit, restaurant is definitely quirky, and don't take anyone offended by profanity - the playlist is a decent amount of good OG rap. Above all - the chefs have talent and have constructed an interesting, intriguing menu that WORKS. Enjoy.

Quirky, fun and interesting! I loved the fish and chips! The atmosphere is colorful and laid back and the staff is super friendly!

What was I thinking, falling for gimmicks. Foie gras in a donut. What about a good donut, OR a delicious nibble of foie. Not both just for showboating. The only memorable thing worth ordering again on the menu was the fish and chips and I think I've had better at Coney Island. "Elevated" wacky food combinations in Bed Stuy, get it? Reasonably priced but overall, skip it. Or go for drinks. The food here was just trying to hard.

Everything on this menu is amazing, and just quirky enough to keep you interested. How often do you get Fish and Chips, and your fish is over battered? Not a chance here. The fried red snapper garnished with garlic and served on a bed of fries may be the answer to all my hunger woes. If you ever questioned why one would eat Foie Gras, please get this donut and stop embarassing yourself. A mixture of savory foie, and sweet jelly/compote filling, combined within a donut delicious enough to stand on its own works as a tasty appetizer or dessert. All this amazing food is only made better by a fun laid back staff who are happy to detail every dish, talk about music art, or just about anything you want, or leave you alone if you wanna get lost in the amazing food music and the disco ball. bring a friend, bring family, go solo, just dont forget to do it.

Only been there once right when they opened and i was terrific. Cool interesting dishes that were deliscous. I saw mention on brownstoner that it was pricy. It's not the prices are totally reasonable. We spoke to an owner and he was very friendly. He seemed really interested in cultivating a relationship with other neighboring businesses (Scratch, Dough) which I really like. A nice addition to the area.
