Whether inside the storefront or at a catered event, Brookhaven Bistro's chefs packs bellies with popular food items remixed with a healthy twist. The five-item punch card gives customers the freedom to please their palates with a chewy punch card or a handful of handheld meals such as the chef-recommended blackened tilapia tacos, where fresh and slightly spicy tilapia, beans, jack cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes savor a hug from a delicate tortilla. Brookhaven Bistro's signature salmon quesadilla features a large tortilla grilled and filled with wild Alaskan salmon, jack cheese, and tomatoes. Herbivore-friendly meals include the veggie wrap, whose crunchy insides tap dance over tongues to deliver gifts of hummus and Goddess dressing to hard-working uvulas.
Order a hot cup of special-roast java, hand-roasted in small batches to ensure high quality (traditional brewed coffee starting at $1.65, lattes and mochas starting at $3, and signature coffees starting at $3.50), as you peruse the menu. Third-shifters and breakfastaholics can order a $4.50 daybreaker like the Catalan (a Spanish omelet with sliced potatoes and onions), while daytime diners who insist upon chronologically appropriate fare can have a Cubano panini (ham, pork, swiss, and Cuban sauce, $7.50). To keep a meal flavorful, light, and healthy, follow the happy-heart icons to a grilled treat like the Taaza Tango, a grilled Indian chicken kebab over a cold bed of mixed greens, spiced pecans, fruit, cucumber, and mango vinaigrette ($8.50, $5.50 for salad without kebab). Smoothies like the Caribbean Tango (mango, passion fruit, and bananas, starting at $3.95) cap off a meal and relieve sunburned mouths.
