RealTours: A Day in Brooklyn with Saira Toppin.

Saira Toppin, one of RC’s newest agents, lives right on the border of Crown Heights and Brownsville. She’s ventures out of her neighborhood more often than she stays in it so her picks are all over Brooklyn.

Coffee: I’m more of a tea girl, but the last place I had a coffee was from Beny’s Delice on Fulton Street in Clinton Hill and I highly recommend it.

Morning: If I have my choice I’ll definitely head to Dean Street in Prospect Heights. It’s the perfect after church brunch spot. My favorite is the fried chicken with mushroom gravy (no pork for me) with fried eggs, potatoes, and biscuits!

Daytime: My daytime activity is work! On the weekends, catch up on shows if I can or run errands. Boring, I know. On nice days, though, it’s great being so close to Prospect Park!

Dinner: Graziella’s on Vanderbilt in Clinton Hill is the best. I always get the chicken marsala with vodka penne.

After Dark: Bowling in Sunset Park at Melody Lanes would be my choice for a night time activity.

Hidden Gem: There’s a new restaurant that just opened up about a month or so ago on Rutland Road. It’s called Richness. They have a great lobster and shrimp Rasta pasta.
