Autumn has crept in and I can’t help but feel a little sad that day trips to the Rockaways have gone away, cafes have stowed away their outdoor seating and battened down the window hatches (except for Five Leaves because… well I don’t really know why). The only way to fight this sadness is to replace these feelings with happy moments, happy feelings and most importantly, happy hours.
By embarking on a food-focused Greenpoint happy hour crawl I discovered my preferred method to get a little taste and a lot of feel out of a few places in one night. Here are some of my favorite omnivorous dishes in the hood during the typically alcohol-focused creation known as ‘happy hour.’
A fish counter with a penchant for service, this white-tiled silvery-scaled spot on Nassau Avenue offers oysters for $2, beer and cider for $5, wine and cava for $6, and a catch of the day menu a la carte. And it makes me want to remind you that one dollar oyster promotions are completely unsustainable. Places that are still offering this deal regularly are likely getting oysters from ecocidal farms; we could all do our part by not expecting and seeking dollar oysters.

Order the Myrtle-scented pork ribs. Yes, this post is about Le Fanfare’s (1103 Manhattan Ave) irresistible $10 pasta special, but you won’t be dissatisfied if you veer onto the main menu and indulge in the ribs. Served over a bed of organic polenta and topped with fresh greens, this entrée slides off the bone and — I swear — doesn’t get stuck in your teeth. Were the bones pre-lubed, or is it some other culinary magic? Greenpoint may never know.
But anyway — back to the pasta. Le Fanfare, the charming Italian gem between Clay and Dupont on Manhattan Avenue, has recently launched irresistible pasta specials. Every Monday through Wednesday, LeFanfare serves three off-menu pasta specials for $10 a dish. Continue reading →

Lately, one of the hottest tickets in Greenpoint is to the series of dinners being hosted by The Wild Honey Pie. The monthly event, which began last year, starts with a three-course dinner before a small set by an up-and-coming artist. The dinner party has been held at several locations around the neighborhood including Archestratus Books + Food on Huron Street. Needing to find a bigger space that can accommodate more guests and equipment, they’ve moved over to Le Fanfare (1103 Manhattan Ave). That’s where this month’s dinner will be held on the 24th with the local band Future Generations.
