So, I hit Morris Truck (same people) at least once a week (it's outside my office in midtown), and live in Manhattan. I heard about Glady's opening in Brooklyn, and had to try it. I wondered if it would be worth the trip across the Bridge, and discovered that it was DEFINITELY a place I would go even further for. The hummus and grilled bread - INSANE. At first I was skeptical about ordering hummus, but it was transformative. The Broc Obama was so good, my son ate it up (best way to get him to eat green veggies). It was "off menu" that night, but they made it for him (they have it on their brunch menu). The homemade pickles, the grilled cauliflower salad, and crispy potatoes might help convert me to a vegetarian...but then there is the Bubie, which gives new meaning to corned beef. If you are someone who hesitates to order chicken at a restaurant, Glady's will spoil you because you actually won't be able to order it anywhere else. It's off the charts good. I mean, really insane. I actually ordered a second to take home. It's that good. Their wine list is pretty interesting and extremely reasonable. It's like reverse sticker shock, and the waiter knew about every single wine, and which we'd like best after we placed our order. Don't drive there, though, because between the wine list and the cocktails, you want to be able to enjoy them. Mixology might be trendy right now, but with the cocktails at Glady's I hope the trend lasts. The Jersey Thunder was dangerously easy to drink. I'm not a big tequila drinker, but my friend said Charos kick was a nice take on a spicy margarita. All in all, I'll be add this to the list of places to frequent (and reasons to visit Brooklyn).

At what is by far the best looking restaurant on the strip we are finally freed from the tedium of cavernous steampunk and Victorian bric-a-brac. Glady's' polished aquamarine and chrome, walls of glass louvers, and blonde wood have brought New York restaurant design into realms only explored by the Scandinavians and the San Franciscans. I've been waiting for this town to get on the ball. But what drew me in was the menu, in particular a sandwich of grilled octopus, romaine, preserved lemon, and po boy sauce. Reading that, I knew I had only moments to shove that thing in my mouth or I would go into conniptions. Wine list very current (Zweigelt, Jura, everything the kids are drinking these days). Staff amicable and human, details that show fine training, no theatrical flourishes. Dessert: grilled fig leaf ice cream with olive oil. I had to slap myself out of my stupor, it was so delicious and inventive without resorting to gimmicks or shock-combos. Outstanding new addition not only to Crown Heights, but to NYC.
