If you haven’t been to vibrant Graham Avenue on the border of Williamsburg and Greenpoint yet, I present to you the perfect reason to explore this part of town. Named after a communal trout fishing lodge that her grandfather founded in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Emily Casey’s Bourbon Springs somehow captures the familiarity of a little restaurant in the south, but with the all the culinary chops necessary to survive New York’s competitive restaurant scene. The Cajun-inspired menu is sure to satisfy and the bar happens to make some of the best craft cocktails in the city. The interior is pleasant and charming; small enough to feel welcoming yet with table spacing optimized for conversation. Bourbon Springs also enjoys a quaint backyard complete with picnic tables surrounded by planters overflowing with herbs, tomatoes, and blueberries. On Sunday evenings, they offer seasonal all-you-can-eat seafood boils, currently featuring crab and shrimp.
In celebration of Fat Tuesday, The Habitat is hosting a beer tasting with Bayou Teche brewery from Louisiana. The brewery crafts beers specifically to complement Cajun/Creole dishes – so it will go perfectly with my favorite dish – a generously portioned Chicken and Andouille Gumbo served with a side of warm cornbread. Plus they will be serving a Stout paired with special house made ice cream!
A flight of four following beers ($14) will be served with complimentary food pairings:
