Sundays normally bring brunch to mind for any New Yorker. Sunday in Brooklyn (348 Wythe Ave.) is much more than that. Open daily for brunch, lunch and dinner this tri-level restaurant is like a fashion house of food. At “Sunday” there is creative use of fresh ingredients—even the scraps are utilized in new dishes, drinks and marketplace items. The restaurant opened for dinner in November, rolled out brunch shortly after and opened the marketplace in December. So yes, something good did happen in 2016. The marketplace features a takeout menu and pantry items to make any home chef take their game up a notch. Chef Jaime Young is passionate about sustainability at Sunday: “The marketplace gives us the opportunity to utilize everything that we’re buying…it kind goes with our whole ethos of trying to utilize as much as we can in this restaurant.”

When you want to feel a little magical but totally bad ass, you need to turn to Beast or God. This Greenpoint-based creator, Robert Pappadeas, is inspired by the mystical. His pieces have a dark quality but they’re also not afraid of a little humor like the quirky but spooky little ghost pins.

Flying Squirrel (87 Oak Street) got its start more then a decade ago by filling a void. Its owner, Kate Schmitz, was schlepping in and out of Manhattan with things for her friend’s 1-year-old twins. At the same time, they were concerned about what would happen when the kids grew out of all that little kid stuff. They worried that those “two huge plastic ExerSaucers on the curb were going to take up a lot of space in a landfill.” And thus—the idea for Flying Squirrel was born, complete with cool logo design by illustrator Carl Dunn. Now that in Brooklyn you rarely need to go to Manhattan for anything, Flying Squirrel offers an expertly curated selection of new and used children’s clothing, toys and books for families that have made their home in the neighborhood.

Hannah Dilworth may own Williamsburg shop Concrete + Water, but her heart belongs to Greenpoint, where she lives with her fiancé and their dog Henry.
Hannah’s shop is a beautiful, stylish sight to behold, with gorgeous, well-curated items, from the perfect summer bikini to the most current pair of sunnies.
A recent panel at the shop, sponsored by Made Real Vodka and moderated by its founder Nicole Williams, featured a fun and lively group of female North Brooklyn entrepreneurs. As would-be entrepreneurs sipped a spicy honey-vodka cocktail, they listened to Hannah, Victorian Deych, Kilee Hughes and Lenore Champagne Beirne discussing the confidence required to be your own boss in a hostile economic climate. Afterwards, we chatted with Hannah about the event, her shop, collaborating with her partner, and how she turned her passion into a lifestyle.
