Dean Street – Should be on every street
755 Dean Street (@Underhill Ave), Brooklyn, NY 11238
A or C train to Clinton-Washington Ave station
This newest establishment on Dean St and Underhill Ave, had big bright windows which attracted us from outside. As we entered and took in the decor, we were immediately intrigued. We grabbed a seat at the bar and got busy sampling the menu. The host and waiters were all upbeat and help to bring a nice energy to the overall experience. Stopping in for a quick drink can easily turn into a pleasant evening. You may even find yourself engrossed in interesting conversation with a stranger. The menu is unique and seems to have a touch of southern flare. We tried a variety of appetizers including the calamari, cheese grits and the collards and beans. All were very good! Stop in Dean St for happy hour (Monday – Friday 4pm – 8pm), lunch, and weekend brunch 11 – 5pm. Dean St also offers live music Wednesday nights.
We stopped into the Café (enter it on the Underhill Avenue side Monday – Friday 7am – 3pm) one weekday afternoon this summer. We had one of the specials – the omelet with gruyere, tomatillo salsa verde, which comes with potato or salad. This omelet was sensational!!! I ordered a side of bacon. It was a good portion too. We also had their crabcake appetizer, which was better than we thought it would be, and a Caesar salad, which comes with anchovies and anchovies in the dressing. We opted out on that. The service was wonderful, and the food was obviously prepared with care.
Lunch served Mon – Fri 12pm -2pm

Higher-end ($61 – $100pp) We found it to be worth every penny. This is what we paid for their fried calamari appetizer, about 2 drinks each, and two seafood main courses.
