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.”
Your coffee service is going to get way more interesting with curated cultural events in each shop, like music, poetry, fashion, food, film and art!

Loyal reader Xenia Rubinos submitted this video that is filmed in Greenpoint. It will wake you up so turn the sound down before you hit play. She described herself a “CubaRican” and made this “Puerto Rican Punk” video along with the filmmaker Francesco Lettieri and her drummer/coproducer Marco Buccelli (both sound eyetalian to me) as an ode to the “beautiful city we live in!”
