One of the reasons Five Leaves (18 Bedford Ave.) is so loved is that it always feels inviting no matter what the season. Spring and summer means packed tables of attractive sun worshippers lining the pavements outside, but in colder months there’s nothing better that holing up inside for an evening of great food and delicious cocktails. Last Friday was one of those such nights and we took great delight in ducking out of the chill night air into a cozy candle-lit corner to try some new seasonal additions to the dinner menu.

Puffer jackets at the ready…this week’s gonna be a chill one with temperatures rumored to be dropping down to the 30′s by midweek. Brrrrrr. Fortunately our favorite neighborhood Italian Adelina’s has added some excellent new dishes recently and they are exactly the kind of thing we want to be eating on a cold winter night, washed down with a nice glass of red from one of the many wine casks that line the walls of the restaurant.
It may be November already, but that’s absolutely no excuse to go into hibernation. There’s plenty of reasons to get out of the house at the weekend, including this excellent one from the folks at The Water Table who are serving weekend brunch and dinner onboard their 70 year old ex-navy boat ‘The Revolution’.
Captain Kelli Farwell and first mate Sue Walsh are behind the floating feast, which runs as a cruise from India Street Pier, and recently returned from the upper east side which served as a temporary location while the Greenpoint jetty was under repair. Continue reading →
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 →
