There are so many exciting restaurants in Brooklyn these days, it’s hard to know which ones to try first. We’ll make it easy for you by putting Le Comptoir as a must for brunch. And the Creme Brulee French Toast has a lot to do with it. This ingenious creation — great for a hangover — is albeit a curious looking concoction (so consider yourself warned), but a delicious one at that. It arrives to the table in an oblong soufflé dish, looking like nothing more than a doughy mass of bread and sugar. But dip below the crust and you’ll discover a super creamy, caramelized custard beneath topped with a fresh berry compote. You might have to waddle your way out of the trendy eatery, but this decadent brulee will have been well worth it. Trust us.
