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 […]

384 Court Gets a Facelift and Coffeeshop.

The front of 384 Court Street has changed dramatically.  Below you can see what it used to look like with the attached lighter colored storefront and above you can see the changes they have made.  Not only have they painted and taken down the awnings but they have added and replaced the large windows surrounding the […]

Real Tours: Kensington by Jane Herro

Kensington…even the name is charming! Located in the center of Brooklyn just south of Prospect Park, this diverse neighborhood is home to gorgeous prewar buildings and Victorian homes along it’s tree-lined streets. Ocean Parkway, which was finished in 1880, starts in Kensington and runs all the way down to Coney Island. The Parkway offers 5 […]

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 […]

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 […]

An In-Depth Year in Review of Brooklyn.

We can all agree it’s been an insane year for the country and we are all so glad to see that 2016 is behind us.  Reading about America’s year-in-review has been just plain depressing.  But what was 2016 like specifically in Brooklyn?  We came across a piece in the Brooklyn Paper that highlights the major […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cobble Hill’s New Welsh-Inspired Restaurant.

As New Yorkers we feel we’ve tried every type of food imaginable.  From Ethiopian to French Canadian.  But have you ever tried Welsh cuisine?  A new bar and restaurant just opened up on Smith Street called Sunken Hundred. Some of the dishes on the menu sounds like flavor combinations that will definitely be new to […]
