Since our first Love Bites in Greenpoint date proved such a smoking-hot success, we are thrilled to announce that we recently paired up a second gorgeous couple for a blind dinner date.
Last weekend Conor, 27 and Jo, 31 went for dinner at local fave Brooklyn Label (180 Franklin Street) and feasted upon treats such as calamari, risotto and pecan pie.
But whilst they went nuts over their dessert…did they go nuts about each other??!
From time to time, every couple of months, I get a severe craving for an outrageously good curry. Unfortunately I’m yet to find a really awesome local curry house but, this Thursday, for one night only, help is at hand! Or at Heel (schnarfle).
Achilles Heel will be welcoming Caroline Fidanza of Saltie to host a London-style curry night extraordinaire! The full, mouthwatering menu is below and the team at Achilles will be whipping up cocktails and a special punch to pair with all the dishes.
Curry in a hurry? Not on Thursday. This is one spicy feast you’ll most definitely want to linger over! Continue reading
As of 8am this morning, Littleneck Outpost is open at 128 Franklin St (at the corner of Milton St) in Greenpoint. It is a sandwich shop/cafe/specialty grocery spinoff of the restaurant Littleneck in Gowanus. Full review coming soon, but in the meantime, let us know what you think!
(sponsored)We can all agree that Greenpoint majorly delivers on the foodie front – with one exception – lunch. The biggest complaint I get (and I get ALOT of complaints) is that there aren’t a TON of lunch spots to chose from. We Greenpointers want choices! Well, guess who just rolled out not only a new lunch menu, but also dinner AND brunch service, that also includes wine? Charlotte Patisserie on Manhattan Ave. And don’t forget their incredible outdoor space and the infinite array of drool-worthy desserts! Continue reading

There are loads of awesome local brunch spots, but in a game of quick-fire word association I’d automatically pair ‘Greenpoint Brunch‘ with ‘Five Leaves‘. Unfortunately, as the heavily populated corner of Bedford and Lorimer demonstrates, so would the rest of the neighborhood which means you have to get there bright and early on weekends to avoid a wait for a table.

Glasserie (95 Commercial St) has been operating for less than a year and already it’s caused a significant stir amongst NYC foodies. When Sara Conklin opened the restaurant last summer it rapidly gained a glowing reputation for its modern Eastern Mediterranean food served in the beautiful setting of a former glass factory at the northernmost tip of Greenpoint.
You have two choices for this Saturday night: Go out for dinner OR go out for dinner and donate the profits to help kids play basketball. WHAT ARE YOU GONNA CHOOSE?
