Just because Baron's Cafe is located in the heart of Greenpoint (and attracts a largely Polish clientele) doesn't mean you can expect to be courted by a tray of kielbasa. At most, you can quaff a cup of mildly flavored, scarlet borscht, or scarf down a late-night blintz. That's about the extent of the Eastern European culinary influences. The bulk of this diner's menu is roadside fare interspersed with a few ambitious items: a confidently fried whole trout that disintegrates on contact, crispy schnitzel as big as your head, and a bold beef tartare that doesn't seem completely out of place when you consider the elegant red brick and dark-stained wood interior. True to the spirit of the neighborhood, the strength is in the starches: rich, chunky mashed potatoes and a tangy, strangely addictive rough-cut cabbage slaw.
