Ample Hills Coming to Park Slope.

We’ve been so looking forward to the opening of Nitehawk in the old Pavilion theater site at 15th Street in Park Slope, which is set to open this year, and now we have another opening to get psyched about. We just heard that Ample Hills signed a lease at 192 Prospect Park West right next to […]

Brooklyn Hot Chocolate Tour.

We love making up our own activities in order to explore Brooklyn by foot and there is no better way during the chilly winter months than grabbing some friends and touring the best spots in Brooklyn for hot chocolate. Now, there are definitely amazing places all over the borough but we had to stick to […]

Hope and Anchor Closing Shop.

We were browsing Facebook yesterday and saw this message (also below) posted the day before from one of our favorite Red Hook establishments, Hope and Anchor. We remember many a night grabbing a bite, having a drink or singing our hearts out at Karaoke here and are so sad to see that they’ll be closing […]

Shopping Pies for the Holidays.

The holidays are approaching and by the end of this week many of us will be finished shopping. Many holiday markets have come and gone and now we will only have to think about what tasty morsels we’ll be serving for holiday parties or family dinners next week. Ordering hams or turkeys from places like Whole […]

Seasonally Focused Camperdown Elm in South Slope.

We love trying new restaurants and, though it took us a little while to make it over to Camperdown Elm on 7th Avenue and 15th Street, we finally tried them out for dinner on Friday night and enjoyed every bite (and sip!). They have been open since late June and have already become a neighborhood […]

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 […]

Market. Kitchen. Table. is a new space that opened at 521 Court Street and it not only looks delicious but the concept seems perfect for this neighborhood! They use locally sourced ingredients to prepare healthy meals that can be delivered right to your door or picked up. They deliver to Brooklyn and Manhattan and deliver […]

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 […]
