A Spoonful of Sofrito: The Hottest Restaurants in Brooklyn Right now!
A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life!
One of my New Year's resolutions for 2016 will be to explore Brooklyn culinary culture! Undeniably one of NYC's food meccas, I've ignored the incredible eateries of this foreign land for too long! Living in the Bronx (Boogie down forever), I've always considered Brooklyn too far away to go and eat! But, after reading numerous reviews of the amazing new places popping up throughout the BK, I realize I need to let go of my Brookyn-phobia and make the journey out there. I can't keep missing out!
The article below, from NYEaters.com, is a good place for us Brooklyn Foodie Newbies to begin our food treks through the BK! Read it, go taste it for yourself, and always: Buen provecho!
Does Brooklyn have its own unique culinary identity apart from Manhattan? Are all the young, ambitious chefs and restaurateurs opening in Brooklyn these days? And are any Brooklyn restaurants worth the train/cab/boat/helicopter ride from the Upper East Side? These are all questions that can be debated, endlessly. But one thing's for certain: There are a lot of terrific new restaurants in Brooklyn right now. Here they are, in map form.
