Mekelburg’s Photo
Snug in a low-slung basement space on an otherwise residential Clinton Hill street, Mekelburg’s functions as a neighborhood catchall. It’s a gourmet grocer upfront, where everything from Mazzola Bakery lard bread to organic artisan miso to ice cream from Santa Barbara’s McConell’s is stocked. Step inside unwittingly, and there’s a chance you’ll be duped into thinking that’s all that’s going on. Which is understandable, given how easy it is to get distracted by the charcuterie case that immediately greets you. Head into the back, though, and you’ll find a beer bar with food worth wandering in for and plenty of great suds on the lengthy, locals-heavy list. (There’s also a small backyard with picnic tables.) The unexpectedly top-notch baked potatoes have been a normcore hit, but there are also worthy sandwiches like a solid, appropriately greasy porchetta; throwback meatloaf; a hearty, if not standout, Italian combo; and a delicious báhn mì riff made with Peking duck and duck rillettes. There are snacks like Sichuan peanuts, which pack the right dose of ma la flavor, and brunch is offered daily, with dishes like a Mek-Muffin and chocolate babka French toast.
