Eating there I imagined myself somewhere off of Graham ave , somewhere where my reaction to the humble delightful food was closely spied upon. A place you find yourself dining in where all the locals point you to in a small mountain or fishing town. They all have their tales and their favorite memories usually made up of menu items so thoughtfully if not whimsically addressed. I think whimsical is one of those words that restaurants in NY strives to stifle. In my mind whimsical is well , not to mention what you think of it as a silly 90's word, but the way I see it as the older wiser brother of "pretentious." So using the word whimsical to describe this place would safely say they are guarding your imagination without stretching it too far off the plate in order to confuse your wallet. Maybe this is just a really tasteful way of neighborhood-camouflaging or this is the way really great chefs choose to cook at home and still impress their family and friends.
