For the last 2 months I have been walking by Salud Bkyln (Brooklyn ) store front waiting for them to open their doors to the public. Their awning said ” Tapas Restaurant Bar” I love Tapas. I Love Restaurants and I love bars. SHOCKER! A fat guy that likes food that you can eat with your hand. I am pretty sure that we all LOVE Finger food. Small portions of different plates lets your sample the most out of a menu with out committing to a main dish how can you go wrong? .( PLEASE DON’T START WITH THE COMMITMENT ISSUES. I HEAR IT ALL THE FUCKING TIME. ) As soon as I heard that they were open I jumped at the chance to eat some of their food.
I got my fat ass there by 9 pm the same day. The place wasn’t packed but it wasn’t empty. In my opinion the perfect amount of people. Enough that the staff isn’t on top of you but not so busy that they are no where to be found.
The meal started out with a extra dirty martini and a cheese plate. Well we all know that I am a cheese whore and LOVE ME SOME CHEESEEEEEEEE. Remember Kids cheese is crack! Everything was going well till I heard the words that ALWAYS KILL ME. ” Soft opening” My smart ass went on the first Day YAY. I have been to more soft opening then I care to remember. Most of them have ended up with Fat Guy having Rocket butt. Do you know what rocket butt is?? THINK ABOUT IT!! It was already too late to back down my orders have already been placed. I did the only thing that I could do in a situation like this…. Ordered and other martini! ( thankfully no rocket butt and I had a good meal)
Next came out the Ceviche and some other crap. (it wasn’t crap I just don’t remember the name) Guy, gals and who ever else is reading this the Ceviche was on point. Good clean and fresh. All the flavors were balanced and nothing was over powering.
These are the craps. I would have them again. But I cant remember the name of the dish to save my life.
The main Course was a lovely New York Strip cooked and matched with its side perfectly. Yes I ate all of this shit by myself. There is a reason why the blog is called fat guy from Brooklyn.
The churros were the only that was not on the same level as everything else that they served. To be fair I had 2 bowls of rice to riches earlier in the day. I was pretty much full of sugar and rice to riches is the BEST. I will have to try them again.
Overall. I like Salud BKLYN the food is good clean and fresh. What more do you want from a restaurant? The owner was a sweetheart. Spoke to everyone that was there that night. He couldn’t sit down but promised to have a drink with me next time. Jose, don’t mess with a fat guys booze! I will hunt you down and Make you drink with me! Plus I would love to interview you more formally.
BTW there is a beautiful waitress there by the name of Genesis . ( SEGAAA) That promised to follow me on IG but never did…. GO shame her my minions! Order 66 on HER!!! Joking….. But yea why did you not add me? Is it cause im fat???
