Now here's a place that's very close to me, yet I don't stop in all that often. Sputnik is a little bar and performance space on Taaffe which has apparently, unbeknownst to me, started serving food.
SPUTNIK is well known in brownstone brooklyn for being a bar/performance space, having hosted such acts as KRS ONE, Earl greyhound, DJ Premier and many, many other notable musicians and artists as well a plethora of local talent.
What may be of news though, is that for over a year now, SPUTNIK has been operating as a "burger joint" restaurant as well, with a focus on specialty meats. I'm confident, and our many local regulars can attest, that SPUTNIK very possibly has the best burgers in Brooklyn. Choose your burger (the Sputnik, The memphis, the Tijuana etc.) and choose the type of patty (elk, ostrich, bison, beef, turkey or veggie). add a side of fresh cut fries, onion rings or a side salad. We've also recently added pita wraps: The Veggie California, the Falafel pita wrap, the spicy turkey, etc.
Yes, we are still a bar and have summer drinks on our menu. the sangria has quickly become a house favorite.
I understand there are many, many dining options in Brownstone Brooklyn and I think SPUTNIK offers something a bit different and well...just original.
Anyone had a chance to stop by lately? How's the food? "Best burgers in Brooklyn" is quite a claim, but it sounds like it's worth a try.
