So sad to hear of Mike's passing. He was a fairly young man, no? 55 or so? Does anyone know how he died?

When I was in grad school doing some research on the neighborhood, he sat with me for a long time and gave me the scoop on Flatbush Avenue and its history. Told me his place started as a fish market across the street, but then the customers started asking him to cook the fish for him, so he had to open a place with a kitchen.

Condolences to his wife and the rest of his family.


Mike was a gem and his dedication as a restaurant professional goes unmatched. He catered many public and private events for neighborhood folks but will also be remembered for his outstanding community support particularly to the Lefferts Manor Association, and the Annual House and Garden Tour.

Sincere condolences to Phyllis, his lovely wife, as well as the entire family.

He will be sorely missed.


As new residents in the neighborhood, we only recently tried Mike's jerk chicken and it's some of the best chicken we've ever had in our lives. We're sorry we never got to meet Mike, because we heard such nice things about him.

Our condolences to his family and friends, and his colleagues at the restaurant.

This is such sad news and as family gather to celebrate Mikes life we want to send our deepest sympathy to the entire Hylton family and let them know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. Love you guys.


Great guy. He will be missed


Wow. i'm sorry to hear about mike's passing. Me and my 6year old daughter have had the pleasure of eating dinner and talking with him on several occasions. he will be missed.


I am Mike's niece and it's nice to see so many people say nice things about him. For those of you who were wondering, he had lung cancer and it spread to his brain. He was 62. Thank you again.
