At an intersection bounded by an ancient bodega and a huge laundromat, Deacon Blue is a neighborhood joint with a menu as eclectic as its creators: Real-estate broker Santos Williams and one-time marketing exec Marcia Byam work the front of the house, while chef Damon Ogletree mans the kitchen. Red linen curtains filter sunlight onto dark hardwood floors and the restaurant’s ten tables; scarlet leather couches and matching walls encourage lounging. Dinner is a global array of comfort foods, with familiar Italian and Japanese dishes like pasta primavera and teriyaki-brushed salmon. But the Caribbean and Southern specialties, nods to the predominant cuisines of Prospect Heights, most satisfy. Hefty, spicy fried chicken is matched with sweet potato fries; a jerk chicken burger is marinated in sweet, hot spices and doused with mango salsa; and a fat pair of fresh salmon cakes is served with buttery homemade grits. The kitchen also brews its own ginger beer, along with a sweet, house-made tropical sparkling punch squeezed from a secret recipe.

Weekly Specials

Every Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. during Seniors Night Out, diners 60 and over can enjoy a three-course prix-fixe menu for $12. Fridays, educators get a little extra TLC—that’s Teacher’s Lounge Connection, with 10% off menu items (networking and classroom gossip, gratis). And every third Wednesday of the month at 9 p.m., creative types can step up to an open mic, at Indigo Blue.
