My boyfriend and I just came home from having brunch at Alchemy and we really liked the food and the outdoor space was nice as well. I only give it 4 because I've only tried their brunch but we will definitely go back for dinner and report our findings ;-). I had the sweet guinness pancakes and it had a great selection of fruits - not just canalope and a few blueberries - it had blueberries, strawberries, grapes, apples and pears. The eggs tasted fresh and didn't need added salt or pepper. I usually have a complaint with my food, too greasy, too much butter, too sweet/salty... but not today I ate everything. My boyfriend had the tofu omelet and he also ate every bit on his plate. He's not a picky as me but none the less he give it 2 thumbs up.

They also have a good selection of beers.

As you walk in, there's a lovely bar on your left and several booths that are perfect for parties of up to four people. In the second half of the restaurant there are several long family-style dining tables.
Summers are the best when you can sit outside in the large garden (always at a premium in Park Slope).
There are daily specials until 6 PM with small burgers, mussels, etc -- all dirt cheap. Regular fare is seasonal with delicious burgers, an a-okay quarter chicken with gravy and fresh sole with a light lemony sauce and plenty of capers.
It's not the kind of restaurant you'd travel to, but if you're in the 'hood, it's a perfect place for a solid meal and great microbrews.

Around the block from where I live, I find myself at Alchemy more often than not. They have a great tasty brunch menu and a good lunch deal (free beer with your meal). The burgers are excellent and the mac and cheese is scrumptious! yum. They have a great back yard and during fine weather, it's just the place to be. The service is a little slow in the backyard but I've had no problems inside. I used to love their Guinness bread pudding but I think they've changed it a bit and now it's got some gooey caramel thing on it that puts it too over the top for me. But then again, I'm not a sweets-person. There kitchen is open later than most so I'm happy to come here before last call and get my grub on.
