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.

New Cafe Opening in Carroll Gardens this Spring.

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 […]

Smith Street Soup Festival and Fundraiser this Saturday.
