On any given evening in this resurrected Bushwick diner, little glass oil lamps light a row of young couples forking up simply plated, reinvented comfort food like jicama-and-celery-root salads or meatloaf. Much less fussy than the other hardwood eateries north and south of Flushing, BLR traffics in neighbors looking for comforting classics, like hanger steak served in a satisfying puddle of jus or gravy and surrounded by a golden-brown pile of thin-cut fries. Sides are standouts, including the crispy, roasted Brussels sprouts and sautéed corn. Saturday and Sunday mornings, it’s all about nursing your hangover with a vegan scramble that has organic tofu, seasonable vegetables, tahini, and toast. Get here early enough when the white, metal chairs are still mostly empty, and you might catch the waitstaff applauding each bleary-eyed, uncombed party as it ambles in.
