While by any measure, Bark in Park Slope has had a wildly successful opening, a sad piece of news has gone unreported: Once open bright and early seven days a week, Bark now only serves breakfast on weekends, from 9am-1pm.
Why does this matter? Because Bark's breakfast menu is dominated by their incredible egg sandwiches, like the sausage, egg, and cheese above. Breakfast sandwiches don't get much better than this.
All about the nostalgia, Bark's kitchen starts each one with a McMuffin-style patty—except, made fresh from Feather Ridge Farm eggs, these fluffy discs taste of egg rather than rubber. On a butter-griddled Bay's English muffin, with indecently juicy, subtly spiced sausage, it's essentially a perfect sandwich. Do you need cheese with that ($5.50 with, $4.50 without). Not exactly, but it's hard to say no to the tangy drip of melted Grafton cheddar.
Our message to Bark: Bring back the breakfast! Sandwiches this good shouldn't be confined to the weekend menu. Plus, weekday mornings were such a pleasant, quiet time for eggs and coffee. The Park Slope Saturday morning crowd gets a little... well, Park Slope.
Kids at the high tables, I can deal with; toddlers gnawing on their first hot dogs, sure. But when you have to untangle strollers and puppies to get to the entrance, things have gone a bit far. Even for a place called Bark.
