A Little Din Din - SAUL at the Brooklyn Museum
Sometimes I make friends with some of the coolest people in the world. I think this may actually be one of my greatest talents and it’s something I get asked about a whole helluva lot. One of my favorite cool ass friends is Jazmine Hughes (no relation, but God I wish there was), a writer for New York Magazine and pretty much every other dope online publication. Every now and again Jazmine gets to review restaurants in the city and this night she invited me along to try SAUL.
I can admit that I am in the 99th percentile for terrible Brooklynites, as I’ve not yet gone to the Brooklyn Museum and also had no idea it was so close to Barclay’s and the Target at which I regularly shop. The whole place is super swanky and modern and I am committing here and now to visit that museum at least once by the end of the year.
Look at that happy lady! She tried the Duo of Creekstone Beef (and a cocktail that I also tried). She ordered it medium, which I am too much of a wuss to do yet (gimme a burnt ass piece of red meat if I’m having it). She’s the cutest and we both agreed that it was incredibly tasty.
I got the Crystal Valley Chicken which was (in the words of my mom) slap-yo-mama good. I didn’t know chicken could be quite that moist. Like, I’ve had some dank poultry in my time, but this was just killer. I’m not big into olives so I skipped that section.
If you’re looking for a good date-night location and are willing to drop a bit of cash (nothing too crazy) for your boo, I think heading to the museum and then to Saul’s afterwards is a good plan. Don’t let all of the shiny glass and fancy wait-staff intimidate you, this place is warm and you totally belong.
