This past weekend was all about good food in Brooklyn. It was mostly spontaneous: Matt and I had no intention of eating three meals out. But our Friday-Saturday-Sunday plans took us to different neighborhoods with restaurants that had long been on our list. The first, Union Pizza Works in Bushwick. Has anyone been? We had plans to see this awesome show in Brooklyn, so decided to grab a bite nearby. The pizza was delicious, the ambiance even better. They even have this cool neon sign. We still had two more places to go…
For Saturday brunch, I wanted Huevos Rancheros, so we tried Jolie Cantina in Cobble Hill, a mix of French and Mexican fare. I love the decor here (full of rich, bright colors) and the old school music (we heard lots of Marvin Gaye). The food was good, too, and the service quick and low-key.
Last meal out of the weekend: Hometown Bar-B-Que in Red Hook. I convinced Matt to make an IKEA run with me, and afterwards, we got dinner, beers, and listened to the folk and bluegrass stylings of the Sometime Boys, the restaurant’s house band for the night. The food was good and the vibe was super chill—just what we both needed to round out our Saturday night.
Lots of dining out meant Sunday was spent cooking at home. I made potato leek soup from scratch. Will share the recipe soon!
Did you do anything outside of your routine over the weekend?
