Are You Ready For Restaurant Week?

Hold on to your hats! Restaurant Week is upon us. NYC Restaurant Week (NYCRW) occurs semiannually in celebration of fine dining and all things delicious. Participating restaurants offer scrumptious three-course prix-fixe menus for lunch ($25) and dinner ($38). My favorite part of NYCRW is that it’s so much longer than a week. The festivities run from January 18th…

Soigne: Contemporary, Seasonal Eats

My quest for food often brings me to the 5th and 7th Avenues in Park Slope; however, this “South Slope” 6th Avenue gem caught my attention with its thoughtfully cooked food. I’ve had the pleasure of dining at Soigne twice now and I plan to visit many more times. Before we get into the food, I’d like…

Delroy’s: More Than Your Neighborhood Bar

Delroy’s Cafe and Wine Bar is certainly more than just your neighborhood bar, but it will be my new neighborhood bar. I have walked past this street many times and this past weekend my roommates and I finally went to see what they were offering. About two blocks from the Prospect Park stop (BQ), Delroy’s resides on Fenimore Street…

Blessings: Fresh Herb. Fresh Food.

Blessings is a breath of fresh air on in the Prospect Park South neighborhood I call home. Flatbush Avenue is teeming with the tantalizing aroma of roti shops, West Indian bakeries, and Asian style take-out spots. As delicious as these bold cuisines are, sometimes you just want a simple plate of good food. When that craving calls,…

Flatbush Farm: Local Farm to Table

Conveniently off the busy Flatbush Avenue, it is a wonder that Flatbush Farm and Bar(n) isn’t swarmed at all hours. This two-part restaurant and bar combo hosts a multitude of delicious farm-to-table options. I had the pleasure of tasting some of their brunch options with my mom and uncle and we were not disappointed. After a round…

Scottadito: Italian Gem in Park Slope

If you are familiar with Park Slope, you know that this area is somewhat saturated with brunch spots, young families, and beautiful brownstones. A short walk from Grand Army Plaza on Union St. is where you can find the Slope’s champion in Italian grubbery, Scottadito. My friends and I are always on the hunt for the most delicious, most affordable,…

Traif: Dine on Some Swine

At the mouth of the Williamsburg Bridge, you can find Traif sitting pretty awaiting your arrival. The neighborhood of Williamsburg is exploding with dive bars, new age restaurants, tattoos, and camera-toting hipsters. Traif is smack dab in the middle of a booming Hasidic Jewish community. Ironically enough, the Hebrew word treif is the Yiddish word for food that does not…

Bark: Old Dog, New Tricks

Summertime in Brooklyn boasts plenty of sunshine, bottomless brunches, long walks, and rooftop parties. When you are looking for something a bit more casual, make your way over to Bark in Park Slope. Their tagline is ‘Just Good Food’, and you can expect exactly that. The restaurant has a host of local farmers that provide…

Marietta: Home Sweet Home

My intention is to serve as a guide for all types of culinary journeys in Brooklyn, not only those touched by the South. However for my first post, it only seemed appropriate to take you all to a culinary gem in Clinton Hill my mother and I found during her last trip from Georgia. My mom is…
