In the Mood for Brunch? Head to ‘Eat’ for a One-Day Pop-Up (06/01)

IN_THE_MOOD_FOR_BRUNCH_EAT_GREENPOINTRecently it was announced that Eat (124 Meserole Avenue) would no longer be functioning as a full time restaurant but instead will be shifting its focus onto the idea of ‘a handmade lifestyle through cultivation’.  Owner Jordan Colon has decided that the space, made internationally famous for its monthly silent meals, will now be mostly dedicated to pottery: selling ceramics and hosting workshops.

There will still be a Silent Meal on the first Sunday of each month (see fb for details), but if the silent treatment isn’t up your street there will be one last chance to experience a full-volume mealtime at Eat during a collaborative brunch event hosted by social dining collective ‘In the Mood For‘.

Brooklyn Raspa’O: Colombian Shaved Ice Near McCarren Park

There is nothing more refreshing on a hot and muggy day than fresh shaved ice. A group of local artists opened Brooklyn Raspa’O, a Colombian shaved ice stand at McCarren Deli & Grill (57 Nassau Ave) open Thursdays-Sundays in the afternoon. Their homemade syrups are 100% organic with lots of interesting toppings to chose from.

Since Brooklyn Raspa’O is around the block from Greenpointers HQ, I have been there multiple times. On my first visit I tried the strawberry mint and the lemon ginger honey, but I didn’t get fancy with toppings.

On my second visit, I ordered the Espresso from Ky, who said she would make it the way she liked it. Being an espresso purists, I would never have ordered it with sweet red beans and mochi, which are gooey rice cakes, drizzled with condensed milk. That sounds crazy, but it was out of this world! The toppings served the same purpose as sweet marshmallows in kid’s cereal; even after the last one you keep searching for that sweet flavor and satisfying texture beneath the shaved ice, which is not sickeningly syrupy sweet.

I can’t wait to go back for the Passion Fruit Chili!

Have you tried Brooklyn Raspa’O yet? What do you think?

Last Minute V-Day Pop-Up – Flowers & Jewelry on Dobbin St Until 8pm Tonight (2/14)

Ensure your yearly BJ; don’t go home empty-handed on Valentine’s Day. A great pop-up near Greenpointers’ studio is happening now. The shared studio of Fay Andrada Jewelry and Nicolette Camille Floral Design (50-52 Dobbins St) will kill two birds with one stone. Fay’s jewelry is delicate, modern, and uniquely shaped. It made my sausage fingers actually look dainty. And Camille’s bouquets are almost too gorgeous to take home for my evil cat to tear to shreds.
