Word on the Street: Pretentious menus

A new website is making a mockery of Brooklyn restaurants.



The site "Brooklyn Bar Menu Generator" randomly generates menu items such as "tormented anchovies" and "frightened fig pies."



The site suggests that some Brooklyn restaurants are trying too hard to be edgy.



News 12 hit the streets to see whether residents prefer edgy menus or simple ones.
