The guys often credited with sparking the Carroll Gardens’ restaurant renaissance are being chased “through the streets with pitchforks,” according to Patois co-owner Alan Harding. The Times has a long profile on his team's 12-plus restaurants, and reports that some Brooklyn residents are officially fed up with all these places to eat. “If Brooklyn is a frontier, where a free-ranging chef can throw down his bag of knives, stake out a liquor license and fillet the roaming buffalo — or at least a little brisket — then the frontier is beginning to close. It’s not as much fun, and 10 times as stressful as it once was.”
