Concept: Like the bales of hay dotting its back patio, Farm on Adderley's bathroom channels an Old Sturbridge Village guesthouse. There's a chart for cooking with herbs, old-timey tile floor, framed postcards of the Coney Island shore in a recessed shelf, and a crystal chandelier. The more minimalist Flatbush Farm offers dark isolation chambers with futuristically backlit silver ceiling trim.
Privacy: With three separate rooms at Flatbush Farm, there's little worry that someone else is waiting for you to finish. The restrooms in both restaurants have curtained windows.
Amenities: Slim pickings at Flatbush Farm just a hook for your hat. At Farm on Adderley, you get the hat hook, a bureau stocked with backup TP, and the choice of a wicker basket or aluminum can to toss your used paper towels into.
Flaws: The reek of liquid soap: mint at Flatbush Farm, verbena at Farm on Adderley.
Strategy: If you want more light at Flatbush Farm, you might have to bring the candle from your table. At Farm on Adderley, bring a copy of Anne of Green Gables so you can read it in its natural setting.
