Honeygrow comes to Brooklyn.

With locations all over the Northeast, Honeygrow has decided to expand further by opening a location at 194 Joralemon in Downtown Brooklyn. The company originated in Philadelphia with a focus on fresh, wholesome, simple food. After looking at the menu, we can see that this place will probably be pretty successful in this spot, which […]

Spotlight on Nunez Bar in Cobble Hill.

We were walking by this Tapas Bar the other day and thought it may be new to the area.  Smith street has so many spots coming and going that it sometimes hard to keep up.  Well, it’s been at 247 Smith Street for about a year now, replacing People’s Republic of Brooklyn.  The menu looks […]

New Bar on Court Street.

We passed a bar at 517 Court Street that we’d never seen (or never noticed) before called The Watershed.  It’s quite large so we assumed we’d have noticed it before.  As you can see in the photo it’s the storefront of a new building and has nice big windows spanning the whole space. You can […]

Coffee Roasters Coming to Carroll Gardens.

You can’t miss this giant signage on the corner of Carroll when walking down Court Street.  It announces that East One (E1), coffee roaster and restaurant, is coming soon.  After doing a little research we found out that the original E1 is in London and that the New York opening is one of Zagat’s most anticipated […]

Brooklyn’s Best Pies for the Holidays.

Broccolino NYC Opening in Smith Street.

Formerly Hunter’s, and right next door to Stinky Brooklyn, is 213 Smith Street with a huge sign in the window announcing that Broccolino NYC will soon be opening in this spot.  This Italian restaurant isn’t new to the Brooklyn scene.  They have a second location near the Barclays Center on Dean Street, though food is […]

Updates on Pastificio Flora coming to Park Slope.

We have no shortage of Italian food in and around our area but this new Italian Restaurant, Flora, coming to 8th Ave in Park Slope looks very promising.  We learned a few things from the blog Here’s Park Slope and the restaurants social about what to expect, which is fresh homemade pasta and high quality authentic […]

Venezuelan Arepas coming to Carroll Gardens.

Wow! Another interesting addition to the Smith Street restaurant row.  Feels like only months ago we’d see a new restaurant opening in the neighborhood and it was either Thai cuisine or Italian cuisine adding to the many similar eateries around them.  White Maize, which has a big “Coming Soon” sign outside it’s freshly painted exterior. […]

Danish Restaurant opens on Smith Street.

We blogged earlier this week about a Welsh Restaurant opening up on Smith Street.  We had never had Welsh food and thought that was a nice little addition to the Cobble Hill neighborhood.  Well, we came across Bornholm only blocks away on Smith Street. This Danish restaurant also looks delicious and I must say we’ve […]
