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 […]

New Wine Bar and Restaurant in Carroll Gardens.

A new wine bar and restaurant just opened at 244 Smith Street called Big Tiny.  You may be able to guess that it’s named after the size of dishes it offers. On the menu, which you can view photos of in our gallery below, they have a section for “big bites” and “tiny bites”.  They […]

Cafe Booqoo coming to Smith Street.

Right across the street from the Smith and 9th Street subway stop is a corner storefront that used to house Kimchi Grill.  This little kimchi-centric restaurant was really yummy but unfortunately they closed shop a short while ago. Whenever we pass by a vacant space we wonder what will be the next business that opens […]

Bastille Day Celebration in Cobble Hill!

Today is Bastille Day and , though some celebrate this holiday throughout the entire week, the big Smith Street Festival Bastille celebration will take place on Sunday. You can expect delicious food from local restaurants and vendors since the neighborhood favorite French cafe Bartabac hosts this fest. We also look forward to the live music and […]

New Italian Restaurant Coming to Columbia Street.

The Columbia Street restaurant row is gaining yet another delicious-looking spot. Toby’s Public House just opened up in the spring and with a new season comes a new opening.  We can expect Popina, a neighborhood Italian restaurant, to open up this summer.  The awning is already up at the old Pok Pok spot at 127 […]

Spotlight on Grand Army Bar.

Grand Army Bar is a relatively new addition to Boerum Hill, located at 336 State Street. We tried it the other day and have only amazing things to report back. After sitting down we checked out their extensive award-winning cocktail list and settled on a “Super Cool Party People”, which consists of  pineapple rum, navy-strength […]

Dine In Brooklyn is Here!

We are right smack in the middle of a week and a half long Dine In Brooklyn, which started March 20th and will end on the 30th.  For those of you who don’t know, it’s simple.  Eat at a restaurant on the list (find your many options here!) and pay only $28 for a three […]

Velvette Brew Coming to Smith Street.

Formerly two spaces in one, a juice bar and Shelsky’s of Brooklyn, which moved up to Court Street near Atlantic, 251 Smith Street has had brown paper in the windows for a short while. We are now seeing signage! A small piece of paper has been put up in the window that announces a place […]

Via Roma Pizza Bar Open on Court.

The space at 445 Court Street in Carroll Gardens is looking a lot sleeker than it has in years but it’s still serving up the same type of food…pizza!  Formerly Vinny’s Pizzeria, the current tenants at this storefront have done a nice job of revamping the outside and inside of the new Via Roma Pizza Bar. […]

New Cafe Opening in Carroll Gardens this Spring.

While browsing records at the new Almost Ready Record shop at 135 Huntington in Carroll Gardens we noticed that right next door is a cozy little space with a couple of signs in the window announcing the opening of a new cafe.  There was no one working at the moment to ask more about the storefront […]
