Brunch service at Colonie, Bruijkleen

Named in honor of the Dutch who first came to Bruijkleen (Brooklyn), Colonie is a pioneer for the new food frontier in the Brooklyn Heights food scene. Since their opening in 2011, Colonie has been dishing out fresh, local ingredients in simple yet exquisite ways. Not to mention the décor, which when done by Public and Double Crown vets, Tamer Hamawi, Emelie Kihlstrom and Elise Rosenberg, you know it’s nothing short of perfection–from the rustic wood planked ceilings and living wall all the way down to the multi-purpose menu placemats.

Le Comptoir, Williamsburg

By Mac Malikowski | May 8, 2013

Le Comptoir, Brooklyn

Le Comptoir is the well-priced, neighborhood French Bistro of your dreams.  The menu is concise and petit for a bistro, but not for lack of expertise however, because there isn’t a bad item on it. From the fluffed and decadent Gnocchi and Cheese, to the fresh mixed green and fennel salad (a major and flavorful portion for $7) to a classic beef burger and steak tartar, Le Comptoir provides traditional and affordable (I can’t stress this enough) French food with a few twists to keep you on your toes.

The American Museum of Natural History hosts a zealous banquet of a show, offering delicious tidbits about food agriculture, history, cooking, and how different cultures experience their foods and meals. The exhibition, “Our Global Kitchen”, takes the visitor on a journey through the past and future. You can explore what a typical dinner Livia Drusilla, wife of Emperor Augustus in ancient Rome, would have eaten, or visualize the future of urban farming which exists in a cylinder building with inclinations full of different crops. The showcase of cultural fares and food systems is too diverse to portray a particular message, but the educational experience about an event we partake in daily resonates deep.

Quick Bites of the Big Apple

Lunch Hour NYC exhibit

Treat yourself to a midday break with a quick walk around Lunch Hour NYC at the public library, going on now through February 2013. The free interactive exhibit will satiate foodies and history buffs alike, leaving visitors to gawk nostalgically at the price of a slice of pizza in 1980 (it was 60 cents, by the way) while reading up on the fascinating traditions of peanut butter and how salads became a diet food. Check out pictures from the exhibit, including a recipe from New York’s first vending machines. Read More
