Sweet Catch BK launched its official brunch menu this Spring season. Coined as the soul of brunch. Sweet Catch invites guests to experience the joy of traditional “soul-food” meals full of warmth, passion and beloved nostalgia. The critically-acclaimed fast-casual, seafood focused, restaurant is steeped in Co-owner, Ka-wana Jefferson’s cultural Southern heritage. Located within the heart of Prospect Lefferts Garden neighborhood of Brooklyn, Sweet Catch welcomes diners to venture into a sweet southern experience.
The seasoned NYC restaurateur, Jefferson, who also co-owns and operates Sweet BK Bar and Lost Borough Ice Cream continues to grow her hospitality empire.

The menu offered fresh seasonal seafood, brunch bites, soul food entrees and seasonal cocktails. The decor, a coastal meets chic design, 1,100 square foot venue. The captivating, ocean inspired haven can seat up to 50 seated guests in the main dining and they also have a backyard patio.
As if the concept was not enticing enough, the menu delivers a packed flavor with a punch. The cuisine is inspired by the Gullah Geechee people. The descendants of enslaved Africans who settled in the coastal American South, which is where Jefferson is from. This style of food is best described as a fusion between West and Central African cooking and lowcountry ingredients. Lowcountry ingredients such as black eye peas and grits were the foods best available to the people at the time. The people living off the coast inspired a fusion of seafood and southern classics like macaroni and cheese.
Sweet Catch captures the homage of tradition through the likes of their Chesapeake Crab Dip served with plantains ($21), Biscuits and Gravy ($22) or their SweetCatch signature boil ($55). In addition to, an ingenious spin on fried lobster & shrimp on a cornbread waffle with maple syrup, parsley, and roast garlic butter ($36). The brunch menu boasts a service that is notably divine in both presentation and taste factors. There is a full bar, carafes for groups to enjoy and non-alcholic options like sorrel fruit punch.
