New Italian Restaurant in Columbia Waterfront Brooklyn.

Those of us who live or work in the Columbia Waterfront District of Brooklyn know this lovely little section of the borough to be quiet, mostly residential, with a few scattered restaurants here and there.  When a new spot opens, it’s pretty big news! Especially if that new spot is getting good reviews! Sebastiano’s at […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Welcome to the Neighborhood, Velvette Brew! by Sandra Manley

Long-awaited Velvette Brew opened last week and it was worth the wait. I stopped by and met Keirell, who told me they’re doing a soft open with coffee, tea, and pastries, and plan to expand the menu with light snacks soon. After trying dozens of brands, Velvette Brew went with organic Intelligentsia beans for all their […]

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 […]

New Organic Burger Cart on Court and Schermerhorn.

There was a small crowd formed at the corner of Court Street and Schermerhorn last week and we walked to the cross section to find out what the gathering was all about.  It was a line for a new food cart called JJ’s Holy Cow.  They serve up delicious-looking organic burgers and just opened the day […]

Dover Transforms into Sheila’s

For three years in the large space at 412 Court Street, Dover wowed diners and critics alike with it’s creative and exquisite cuisine. The owners, who also own Battersby at 255 Smith Street, created an upscale menu for the new place with an optional seven-course tasting menu.  We visited the restaurant a few years back […]

Toby’s Public House Opening on Columbia Street!

We have been waiting for this for what seems like years.  Wait,  it has been years!! It was back in 2014 when we discovered that this beloved neighborhood pizza restaurant, which opened a location on 6th Avenue a while ago and quickly became a favorite Park Slope spot, was opening a second location right next to our […]

We Can Help Relocate Littlefield!

With so many wonderful venues and neighborhood favorites closing their doors around us, such as the Lower East Side’s Cake Shop and BookCourt in Cobble Hill recently, it’s so lovely to see plans for expansion for our other favorites! We love Littlefield! It’s a performance and art space in Gowanus that’s always hosted a diverse variety of […]
