Perfect summertime brunch now offered at Charlotte Patisserie
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

Spring Cocktails and Great New Eats at Five Leaves

Mahi Mahi Sandwich with Truffle Fries

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.

Quinoa and Red Rice Porridge at Coco

In January, the space next door to Coco 66 reopened under Manhattan restaurateur Michael Callahan.  The new restaurant, Coco (68 Greenpoint Ave), wowed us with a fresh and delicious dinner menu that included dishes such as Bourbon-Butter Grilled Oysters, a whopping great Double-Thick Pork Chop, and inventively prepared seasonal veg. The selection of late night bar food (served until 2am) also caught our eye with amazing Pickled Egg Sandwiches and $5 Cheeseburgers.

Now, nicely timed with the arrival of spring, they’ve started serving weekend brunch (10am-4pm), with a cracking menu devised by Head Chef Joe Capozzi (formerly of The Fat Radish) and consulting chef Julie Farias. Continue reading
