The BBQ place and Mac & Cheese spot on the corner of St. Marks and Flatbush open soon - possibly today. Last night I happened to walk by, sniffed around because it looked kind of open, and was invited in to enjoy a "friends and Family Night", which was more of a "Locals' Night".
The brisket was outstanding - fatty, moist, and delicious. The only downside was the (temporary) lack of a liquor license.
No Mac & Cheese samples, but I've eaten several times at the outpost in the Barclay Center and it's no joke. These two places, "The Comfort Food Corner", should be a welcome addition to the 'hood.
