It’s surprising, in this golden age of grazing, that it took someone this long to come up with a restaurant name like Little Dishes. The name and the place are the brainchild of Mira Friedlaender and her chef-husband, Colin Wright. When the South Slope couple envisaged their small-plates restaurant, they took Turkey’s meze-centric fish houses as their conceptual guide. But don’t go looking for hummus and cacik: Wright’s menu is pure American eclectic, as you might expect from anyone who did time at the original Shopsin’s. The idea, cramped table space permitting, is to tuck into several “little dishes” like salt-cod fritters, slow-roasted pork butt and beans, even a wedge of iceberg lettuce with buttermilk and cheddar cheese dressing with bacon, before working up to a toothsome braised lamb shank or a whole grilled fish of the day.Brunch
