It was a long, dry summer for Joaquin Bacas Williamsburg joint, Brooklyn Star, but now that the PBR is flowing its 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 weve dubbed Buttermilk Brooklyn. For a twist, Baca will serve his with potato pancakes and maple butter. Preliminary menu, in all its Anson Millsgritty glory, below.
