Broken, indeed 10/8/2011

Some condescending (but apparently necessary) advice for Broken English... Host: Greet diners when they enter the restaurant, not when there's a break in the conversation you're having with someone at the bar. Server: Offer your guests some beverages. Diners often like to drink cocktails/wine/beer when they eat out...and you'll be making more money for yourself and the restaurant. Everyone wins. Kitchen: Do not use rubber bands to make meatballs...panna cotta is not simply something shaped like panna cotta...trim inedible leaves from the artichoke hearts if you want your diners not to be surprised by a mouthful of something they have to pull back out of their mouths...do not make gnocchi out of the same substance you made the meatballs from...and don't let the pork belly get so leathery that you can make shoes from it. Owner: You can get about the same amount of food for about the same price at, say, Frankie's...but Frankie's is really good. In fact, you have a lot of neighborhood competitors who are in your price range and are serving significantly better food. Something to think about. more

Delicious food and wonderful service 8/25/2010

I'm so glad this place is within walking distance to my house. We went to dinner on a Friday, sat outside on the sidewalk (large spacious sidewalk) and had wine, appetizer of heirloom tomatoes and mozzarella, and we each had a pasta dish for main course. It was delicious! Probably the best pasta I've had in Brooklyn. The pasta was clearly homemade and it tasted divine! Our waiter was attentive throughout the night and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend this place. I think I've found my new neighborhood favorite. more

This will bring me back to Brooklyn 8/14/2010

I stumbled upon Broken English a few weeks ago, heading back to Manhattan from an Ikea trip. With so many restaurants to choose from on Smith Street, I only accidentally found this place, and so glad that I did. The ambiance is like nothing I've seen in Manahattan. We discovered after speaking to one of the owners who came over to out table to great us, that it was actually a converted garage, which is most likely what inspired the oversized feel to the place...high ceilings, exposed brick, flattering lighting, huge double-paned windows, etc. There is also a very funky feel to the place with mismatched tables and chairs . The service, food, and ambiance all get an A+. The artichoke appetizer is something you won't want to pass up. more
