For many years, Elizabeth has told me about Iron Chef House in Brooklyn Heights, how it's her favorite Asian restaurant - perhaps her favorite restaurant overall - in the area. So not long after we'd moved to Brooklyn she asked me to go out on a date with her to Iron Chef House. I don't know anyone else in the city, so it's not like I could come up with a good excuse for being busy. I had to go.
We showed up about 7:30 on a Friday night and the place was packed. There was a table for two available; if we'd been a larger party we would have had to wait.
The table was small, but my first impression of the place was positive. The servers were friendly and despite being busy they approached our table after only a short time.
I wrote about Chang's Garden in March, I mentioned my little two-year-old buddy Lucy and how she likes to hold a menu in front of her face when I try to take her picture, just like Elizabeth does. See what I mean?
