It was a long, dry summer for Joaquin Baca’s Williamsburg joint, Brooklyn Star, but now that the PBR is flowing it’s no longer necessary to wash down those fried pig tails with Kool-Aid. More good news: Brunch launches officially on the 17th, but a trial run could happen as early as this weekend. There will be doughnuts. There will be red-eye gravy. There will even be — yes! — fried chicken, as befits the precinct we’ve dubbed Buttermilk Brooklyn. For a twist, Baca will serve his with potato pancakes and maple butter. Preliminary menu, in all its Anson Mills–gritty glory, below.
