  1. We visited NYC last weekend for our annual trek and stopped by a new places, one being the Heatonist at Chelsea Market. As a fan of the Youtube series, Hot Ones, it was fun to try a couple of the lower hot sauces at the counter. Heatonist 75 Ninth Ave, Chelsea Market - Lower Level, New York, NY 10011 (718) 599-0838
  2. For my sins, I get to spend the weekend in Williamsburg with a 10, 8, 6 and 4 year old. While Busch Gardens is likely to feature prominently in our agenda, I was wondering if folks has any tips for family friendly, but good eateries in the Williamsburg area. TIA
  3. Lipstick lesbians sipping cocktails next to Narragansett-drinking Lumbersexuals. Dim lighting, dark wood, low slung couches, big glass windows overlooking the street, and a scent that I would describe as Dune Spice. Cocktails come with a kick and a friendly vibe. I suspect that late night could get a little Williamsburgy, but early in the evening an enjoyable place to meet up with friends before heading out to dinner. Dram 177 South 4th St. Brooklyn NY 11211
  4. Looking at the pictures in this review, I have *really* good feelings about Lilia, and will make a special effort to get over there when I'm in Manhattan. The grilled sardines on crostini look *amazing*. "At Lilia in Brooklyn, Missy Robbins is Cooking Pasta Again" by Pete Wells on nytimes.com
  5. "Bunk Sandwiches Opens in Brooklyn, Bringing Another Slice of Portland Food Culture to NYC" by Michael Russell on oregonlive.com Opened on 11/17/15 at 740 Driggs Ave.
  6. So far, we have a Bakeries, Cupcakes, and Doughnuts thread, but no love for remaining types of goodies. So, here is one, because I thought others could share their finds, given the wide girth of options available in New York City. This past weekend's find was OddFellows Ice Cream, originating in Williamsburg, with an outpost (tiny) in East Village. I determinedly visited here after seeing Chef Johnny Iuzzini's tweets with photos about this place. I like that it uses local dairy to make its ice cream, as well as that it donates $0.05 per purchase to a food bank. The Village outpost is kind of a fun teeny place, with its uniform throwbacks and wholesome flavors, offering typical and unusual flavors, along with shakes, sundaes, splits, and such. When little man and I visited yesterday, his order of mint chocolate and my thai ice both hit the spot. I like how the ice creams weren't super sweet, and it was nice his wasn't so minty like some can be. The unusual flavor yesterday was Ants on a log, where the customer before us proclaimed, "there is such a succinct celery taste to it!"
  7. Rye ticks off all the boxes for the current state of New American cuisine - Bacon, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, pork belly, short ribs, pickle platter. But they do it well. Duck rillettes served in a glass jar with a thick layer of fat revealed a moist star ainse scented layer of duck served with grilled bread. Delicious. Grilled pork belly with braised red cabbage served over grits. Also delicious. Cassoulet for two was a larger platter of sausage, lamb shank, duck confit, and beans, probably could have fed three and was equally delicious. Even the token vegetarian option of ricotta ravioli with butternut squash and a mushroom broth was super rich...and delicious. A nice cheese plate and a lackluster banana split sundae rounded us out. Rye is the kind of neighborhood restaurant that any neighborhood would love to have. Rye 247 S. 1st Street Brooklyn
  8. Some publications list Fette Sau as having the best barbeque in NYC, and based on my one experience I don't have any reason to argue that claim. Walking in, the bar to the left hosts a most impressive display of whiskey - the website claims they have the best list of American whiskey in New York City. We just ordered some pitchers to drink in line, which were almost gone by the time we got to the front 20-30 minutes later. Tip- don't go on a rainy night because the long line will leave you out in the elements, uncovered by the roof. Most of the outdoor seating area is covered, but the walkways are not. There's plenty of large picnic tables inside as well, community seating being the way to go. The meats are ordered by the pound and are cut and served up for you right there at the counter. Take your tray (or trays) back to a table and dig in. I noticed on the menu that they list the farms that some of the animals are from as well as a few other food sources. Sticking to the classics, we had brisket and pulled pork, but everything in the window looked phenomenol. Off of memory, the other meats offered when we went were pork belly, sausages, baby back ribs, and pork short ribs. Of the sides, we stuck with burnt end baked beans (what it sounds like) and potato salad while plenty of rolls were provided with everything. The meat was succulent, juicy and smokey while still keeping the great meat flavor. (Side brag - my friend/roommate sincerely said he thought my brisket was better, but that's not to take away from their process) The baked beans were awesome, loved how the burnt ends worked in there, and the potato salad gave us a nice body as well. We gorged on everything, the only words spoken were about how good the food was, and we could have eaten much, much more - that should speak for itself. Executive summary: If you're craving BBQ in New York City, go to Fette Sau - you won't be disappointed. They could stand with the majority of legit BBQ places throughout the rest of the country in places actually known for their BBQ.
  9. The Elm has been open a few months, and the reviews have been mostly ecstatic. Brilliant, modern French food, at incomparable prices. Liebrandt, NYC's enfant terrible, certainly knows his way around a kitchen. He owns Michelin and NY Times' stars, and was the chef at Corton for 5 years and prior to that was at Gilt, also earning accolades. I liked my first visit, where I was sharing and passing plates with 3 other diners. But I really like my second visit, with just my wife; I got to eat more of the things I really wanted to. Go - ASAP - who knows how long he'll be in the kitchen here?
  10. I lived near Rye and its companion Bar Below Rye for two years before making it inside. Mistake! Bar Below Rye has all of the makings of a Local. The bartender makes a terrific Manhattan and the drunken grilled cheese (with caramelized onion jam and short ribs) is great drinking food. Confession: I had 1.5 drunken grilled cheese sandwiches during a recent visit. I don't do brussels sprouts but my friend gave BBR's Best Ever status.
  11. One of my favorite elements of living in Williamsburg is Pies-n-Thighs. My typical order is a chicken biscuit (fried chicken cutlet served on a biscuit dripping with honey butter and hot sauce) with mac & cheese (more hot sauce). Of the signature pies, so far my favorite is banana cream. A neighborhood gem and killer of cholesterol test results.
  12. Independent, super hip spot serving all things Stumptown and little else. This is one of the more buzzed-about independent coffee temples in ultra-hip Williamsburg. Nice hipster barista dudes. While hands down way better than chains and serving excellent stumptown coffees, not as engaging as some other spots with less choice of beans, no pour over option, and no real foods or baked goods. And, a vibe making no apologies for any of that. But, if you want to have a doppio and be very chic doing it when across the river, this is the spot for you.
