Karasu – Treasure hunting in the neighborhood!

The best thing about moving around in New York City, is the search for new local gems. And since I recently moved into Fort Greene, looks like I have a lot to discover! Alongside Dekalb Avenue, there are plenty of options but this one is from outer space!

Secretly located inside Walter’s, I felt like being on a treasure hunt!

The little kid was dancing around inside me, – thank God she’s over 21y – because those cocktails …!
Never knew a combo of Yuzu, grapefruit and Shochu would be so delicious!

Same goes for that Ribeye for 2, don’t think about it, just order it.
Besides, couples that share food together, stay together!

– Isn’t that something they say?

Atla – Good morning Mexico!

You cannot learn with an empty stomach!

My friend Mr. P and I decided to take a trip upstate to enjoy Fall, experience art and visit Hudson. And since the car rental company was located on Lafayette Avenue, we decided to start our tip here at Atla for breakfast.

I always love to learn about new cultures and their eating-habits.
This time around: Mexican cuisine. And being the little side project of gastronomic icon Cosme, Atla was setting the bar high!

It was one of my first ‘Mexican Breakfast-experiences’ but definitely not my last!
The huge windows on the street side, the planters on the wall and the perfectly designed bar made it seem this place was amazing for breakfast and lunch. It was airy, bright and created a great ‘Good morning Mexico’ feeling! Only the sun and the beach were missing!

Our server recommended the Huevos Rancheros.
Too spicy? Get the tropical fruit salad to balance out!
Great advice!
