Kraftwork with Kennett mushrooms and ricotta dumplings

I’ve been hearing about the beer selection at Kraftwork for months, so when it was time to see my friend David off to his new job in Chicago, I suggested we try it out. Crowded for a Tuesday night and loud, we decided to sit outside so we could catch up a bit. The beer menu is certainly above-average, focusing more on artisinal and microbrews … Continue reading Kraftwork with Kennett mushrooms and ricotta dumplings

HUGE southern brunch at Honey’s Sit-and-Eat

I tend towards the spicy-Mexican-eggs-style brunch, but on this particular morning, scoring a seat at the bar at Honey’s with minimal wait, I thought I’d try something different.

If you happen to ever frequent Bushwick (Brooklyn) you have to stop by Roberta’s. A former garage with a great outdoor space, Roberta’s bakes their own bread and pizzas in a wood fired stove, grows their produce on the roof, and uses old shipping containers to create extra “rooms.” And the pizza is pretty damn good, too.

Veggicurious jumped on the Twitter bird

That’s right folks, I’ve finally decided to get on the twitter train. I admit that I tend not to jump at the new technology, and love my peaceful moments without all the bells and buzzers and vibrates, but some things (a sudden delicious dish, a last-minute event, the most delicious cheese I’ve ever tasted, yet) are best expressed in tweets. If you’d like to follow … Continue reading Veggicurious jumped on the Twitter bird
