It's been a little while since we broke the news that a new restaurant from Greg Yerman, the owner of Burrito Bar, would be coming to the corner of Park and Flatbush Avenues, and Patch got its hands on a few more details about what we can expect.
First, and most importantly, Its no longer called M. Helen, which was Yerman's grandmother's name. It's now called Carlton Park, which (no offense to his grandma) is a much better choice, in my opinion. It's a classy, pleasant-sounding name, and the fact that it's also the names of two of the streets it abuts makes it a no-brainer.
Second, it looks like they're going full-steam ahead with the farm-to-table, fresh, seasonal approach. Some examples: salt-roasted red-and-yellow beet salad with toasted hazel nuts and burrata to start, and Long Island duck breast with port wine reduction, caramelized Brussels sprouts and sautéed spaetzle as a main. Entrees will average $15-22. Breakfast will also be served (with some grab and go items to pick up on your way to the subway), and a juice bar is in the works.
