Hunky Dory is an all-day restaurant in Crown Heights with very friendly service and a menu we don’t really know how to classify. At dinner, you can get anything from cod “tots” and onion dip to pork schnitzel and a celery root sandwich - and all the things we’ve tried have been solid and interesting. But we especially like this place for brunch, when you can get a big breakfast sandwich with soft scrambled eggs and caramelized onions (add the optional sausage, too). You can either eat at the bar up front, or bring a couple friends and sit in the attractive back dining room that has a big skylight and bright blue walls.
