Tilda All Day
930 Fulton St., 718-622-4300, Clinton Hill, Brooklyn
Tilda All Day is a spotless, modern diner offering free WiFi, a frequently changing menu and a serious coffee program employing Parlor beans roasted in Brooklyn. At breakfast look for charred peaches with lardo toast, and at lunch a great crispy chicken sandwich in a potato bun slathered with hot sauce and buttermilk-tarragon spread. Lovely egg dishes are available all day. Then there are the striking baked goods, as good a reason as any to get on a train to Clinton Hill. They include buttery shortbread and creative extravagances like smoked paprika gougères and maple pound cake enriched with foie gras, sweet potato and pecans. Partners Samantha Safer and Daniel Nusbaum and chef Claire Welle (ex-Per Se) have successfully produced an unrushed environment where locals curl up on banquettes with their laptops.
