I have been a regular at Mrs. Kims for Saturday and Sunday brunch, and on almost every visit, I had to ask that the radio be lowered. I just got tired of asking last week and any pleasure in that last visit was destroyed by the din and the cackling of the waitress and bartender. There was only one couple there, besides myself, and their voices had to be raised in order for them to hear one another, thus creating more cacophony. And, the eggs Benedict, normally a delicious dish, was served virtually cold. Mrs. Kim, don't you care?

The same waitress has gotten my order wrong 3 times. It's crazy. Today I repeated my order twice whilst sitting at the bar and she walks over to the computer 3 steps away and puts in the wrong order--which I don't discover till I get home with my food. I don't understand how a server can be this incompetent.

I go to mrs Kim's because I love the food-- especially the bibimbop!-- but, well-- I have never written any sort of restaurant review in any medium, but this experience set me off. it's not the food's fault-- again-I totally loved the bibimbop! But I was treated by the staff as somewhere between an inconvenience & invisible. I have NEVER left such a low service tip in my life. Instead of seeing if their only guest needed anything -- which I did, but since my eye contact wasn't met--they were more interested in themselves & each other-- the bartender went ahead & made a couple of jack & cokes for the kitchen. ...seriously? I can't believe it'd be that much a challenge to keep tabs on a singular guest in the place. Wow. I luv mrs Kim but won't be back for quite some time.

If you promise not to go to Mrs. Kim's and make it crowded, I'll tell you it consistently has the best Eggs Benedict and Bloody Marys I ever had.

The River Barrel filled an important gap once Paloma burned down but there was nothing truly unique or special about it. Now that they've switched over from soups/salads/burgers to creatively and lovingly prepared Korean with enough fresh and fancy-pants accoutrements to sate my discerning and bourgeois palate--they have transcended (much like Paloma did and Paulie Gees already has). The burgers are still killer but the bulgogi and pork-bun have truly made the menu "special." The only reason why they don't have a higher review is because, well, they're not quite the creme de le creme of Northern Brooklyn dining. They provide, however, a fantastic meal in what used to be a culinary wasteland.
