Vinegar Hill House – Little Brooklyn Gem

The discovery of a hidden gem,
or when turning left is absolutely right!
That’s how I found Vinegar Hill House,

Just kidding, my date took me here after gazing at the stars the night before.
Nonetheless, I was amazed by everything.
Not seeing the guy anymore – this place every once in a while …

From the delicious granola parfait, over our freshly squeezed OJ
(-I didn’t know that was short for Orange Juice at the time) till the summers breeze cooling down the patio.

Very local people, very Brooklyn vibe and very nice food.

Come early for dinner or later on Saturdays and Sundays for Brunch…

It’s the perfect spot!

Roberta’s – Here to stay!

Want to eat Pizza? Roberta’s.

Want to eat Pizza and have a great time? Roberta’s.

Want to have a great experience without the Pizza? Roberta’s.

In the last case, go for the Coppa, Oxtail Ragout, seasonal salad and a sticky bun.

Hang out in the garden while you wait for a table, have a glass of wine, watch the cool crowd, be part of what people call a hype.
Don’t worry about that, they’re wrong.
A hype will fade out after a while, Roberta’s is here to stay!

Olmsted – Celebrating our love for the neighborhood!

Sharing knowledge and experiences … my favorite drug to survive in this city!

If you get recommendations from a friend with a background in culinary art, it is setting high expectations for Olmsted.
Mr. P. was back in town so I decided to take him on a trip to Prospect Heights for dinner in Olmsted.

While sipping on my cocktail with Yuzu, Vermouth, Gin and Sherry, I started to observe the energy floating in this convivial neighborhood restaurant. Knowledgeable servers explaining the colorful dishes to the guests, an eccentric but very nice bartender stirring cocktails, the passion in the kitchen was more than enough to make sure all plates were looking amazing.

This was a vision that had came to life and everybody in the restaurant was being a part of it – even the planters on the wall.

The Austrian Gruner Veltliner turned out not to be the only thing we had in our glass that night. Madeira and a sparkling wine made us forget about the time.
The garden was the perfect setting for the infamous S’MORES to finish an amazing experience.

Professionals run this place.
Every single detail matters.
