RealTours: A Day in Ditmas Park

Ditmas Park is an adorable neighborhood with gorgeous Victorian houses, although some may call them mansions, and two strips of bars, shops and restaurants.  Courtelyou Road used to be the main drag for trendy bars and dining but lately some new and delicious spots have popped up on Church Avenue.  Years ago an RC agent, […]

Spotlight on Za-Ya Ramen on Court Street.

Often times on Court and Smith Streets we wonder if a restaurant that we see is new or if we just failed to notice it until now.  So when we passed by  Za-Ya Ramen noodle restaurant at far south side of Court Street (545 Court) we definitely thought to ourselves “Is this new?”.  The outside […]

Spotlight on Beasts and Bottles.

The restaurant Beasts and Bottles Rotisserie at 151 Atlantic Avenue has been open for about a year and a half now and we wanted to write-up a little piece on it because it’s both a tasty and unique spot on Atlantic that some of you may not have discovered yet.  Located right on the border […]

RealTours: A Day in South Slope

Park Slope is a sprawling neighborhood and years ago people began calling the south end of the area, which could also have been considered Greenwood Heights, South Slope.  It a bit quieter than the north end and a bit more affordable.  It is just as gorgeous, though, with brownstones and tree-lined streets. Here is our […]

3 Outdoor Brooklyn Bars for Labor Day Drinks.

As the long weekend approaches and the summer comes to an end a lot of us are having the same thought.  “I need a drink!”. Well, there aren’t many weekends left to take advantage of sitting on a bar’s patio or garden area and having a few drinks while the sun goes down.  Here are […]

Spotlight on Espresso Me on Atlantic Avenue.

There are so many restaurants and cafes in Cobble Hill that sometimes you pass a place and think it’s brand new before you realize it’s been around for many months.  We are rarely near 88 Atlantic Ave, which is between Henry and Hicks, but saw the big neon sign calling to us “Espresso Me” the […]

A Coffee Shop Changes Hands on Henry Street.

The tiny space at 331 Henry Street right near the corner of Atlantic Avenue has been a coffee shop for many years, first as Henry’s Express and more recently Key and Cup. It has changed owners again and we snapped the photo above with the new exterior of Lillo Coffee Shop and a sign in […]

New Coffee Shop in Windsor Terrace.

The quiet and mostly residential section of Brooklyn’s Windsor Terrace doesn’t have a lot of commercial space.  When a new spot opens up in the area, residents take notice.  The coffee shop at 144 E 4th Street, Windsor Coffee, is already a neighborhood favorite. It gets great yelp reviews and usually has a good amount […]

Boutique Restaurant & Catering in Carroll Gardens.

A new cozy 8 seat restaurant and catering shop opened at the beginning of the summer at 187 Sackett Street between Henry and Hicks. We passed by recently, peeked in and took a sample menu (photo below).  Both the interior, which we couldn’t take a proper photo of because it was dark, and the menu […]
