12th St. Bar & Grill

Laid back Park Slope eatery serving American fare.

What We Had

*None of the food pictures turned out – a storm was rolling in and cut the available light.

I had the hanger steak w frites and seasonal veg, with a blue cheese moray sauce. The steak itself was good, if just a touch dry & underseasoned without the (very tasty) sauce. Hit the spot though.

The seasonal veg was a dish of garlicky spinach that had a great taste but was too oily.

The fries were decent, but I was in no real danger of devouring the plate.

My DH had the espresso rubbed strip steak with truffle mac & roasted button mushrooms.

His steak was great – juicy, flavorful, everything you would want.

The mac was basically bechamel sauce with truffle oil… we couldn’t taste the cheese much at all.

The mushrooms were great. I’m a sucker for sautéed mushrooms, and these did not disappoint. It is times like this when I am glad he doesn’t like them.

I also had the limoncello cocktail w prosecco and did not like it, but I’m very picky.

Décor

Nice – nice large paintings on the wall, soft lighting, and good natural light.

Service

Not bad.

Overall Impressions

A nice little neighborhood joint if you are craving a steak.

Rating

3.5 out of 5 for being a decent steak option. I have to take points off for my steak’s seasoning & the missing cheese, but overall – if it’s a choice between a chain like Outback and this place, this place makes a decent local business option.
