Try a New Summer Drink

In the mood for a sour beer? Spritzenhaus has got one on tap. If sours aren’t your thing, try one of the other 24 beers on tap at this expansive beer garden. If you can’t find an awesome new beer to love with that many options, well, we don’t know what to tell you. Try a cocktail instead?

If you’re a fan of canned cocktails, Duke’s Liquor Box has an intriguing new option to check out. The Long Drink is a Finnish tradition dating back to 1952; its refreshing citrus taste and liquor kick make it great for summertime parties.

Take Your Taste Buds on Vacation

If you live in Greenpoint, you’re probably very familiar with Polish food. If you haven’t tried it yet (or even if you have), check out Polka Dot Cafe or Krolewskie Jadlo for modern takes on traditional Polish and eastern European comfort foods. Polka Dot Cafe is a casual, counter-service spot while Krolewskie Jadlo is a sit-down restaurant appropriate for a first date.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day and also is the last day of Toast to Greenpoint so why not treat her to a mouthwatering meal for 25% off while supporting local businesses?

If you haven’t already, download the Cinch, and use code TOAST25 to get your discount at some classic Greenpoint spots.

Anella (222 Franklin St)

Anella’s warm, inviting interior opens onto a garden space to enjoy brunch outside (if it’s not raining). Brunch includes dishes such as an omelette with oyster and shiitake mushrooms, ricotta, and house potatoes, brioche French toast with mascarpone, and healthier options like a kale salad. Make it a boozy brunch with a Bellini that includes peach, elderflower, and prosecco.

Le Gamin (108 Franklin St)

Open since 1992, Le Gamin is where to take a mom who’d rather be in Paris. Try the escargot to really feel like you’re in France. If snails aren’t your thing, they also offer brunch fare like a mushroom and herb polenta cake with goat cheese crumbles. Finish the meal with a sweet crepe.

Brooklyn Label

Brooklyn Label is your go-to for a classic American brunch. Pancakes, benedicts, omelettes, and of course avocado toast can all be found here. It’s located in the landmark Astral building and has good vibes all around. Bring your mom here if she just wants some good pancakes and a mimosa!

If your mom has a sweet tooth, take her to Charlotte Patisserie. Enjoy French staples like a croque monsieur or a quiche – or just skip straight to dessert. Try the Duet, a white and chocolate mousse with hazelnut crunch, or a raspberry creme brulee, or their seasonal spring/summer Extravaganza, a mango-strawberry mousse topped with fresh candied strawberry.

Toast to Greenpoint is a celebration of the neighborhood produced by Cinch, which aims to connect local residents with neighborhood businesses to discover new experiences and exclusive offers.
