Warm a fuzzy, even on a warm day, Evelyn's is the place to be this Thursday. Not only do they boast a Tiger Beer-Shot combo for $7 but their carefully mixed cocktails are mouthwatering and undeniably delicious. Sometimes the DJ is spinning honky tonk vinyl and you get the slight feeling you're back in the prohibition era. Covered in bricks, with a charming bathroom, Evelyn's is the perfect spot to grab a drink after work and relish in beautiful decor and delicious cocktails. Evelyn's is located between 10th and 11th on C.
The pork taco at Calexico is reason enough to get your booty over there for this Taco Tuesday. Though their burritos, guacamole, and happy hour draft beer special are also relevant factors, this taco is something you will never want to stop eating. So make sure you order enough to satisfy your Taco Tuesday needs. Go forth and Happy Taco Tuesday!
Mission Cantina is perfect for Taco Tuesday, because I really don't love anything here except their tacos. Order up about 4 for yourself, as they are a bit small. I suggest the fish and the blackened chicken tacos, and always load them up with guac. Mission Cantina was started by the same guy famous for Mission Chinese, Danny Bowien, and the menu takes tacos up a notch from your classic truck or stand. Mission Cantina is a hip, neon and psychedelic spot to catch a gourmet taco bite in the lower east side. A tad bougshie for a taco spot, but it still hits the spot. Happy TT!
Want to feel like your drinking in a medieval castle and also sit outside with a craft beer in hand? If yes, then the Ninth Ward is your spot tonight. Beware of interns and of being accused of being an intern, but once you get past that, the outside patio (which closes at 11pm) is a fun and relaxing place to kick back after a long long week. Enjoy the beers, drinks, secluded booths or fountain in the back!
Its Taco Tuesday, and this time were headed over to the dangerously addictive Ottos tacos on 2nd Avenue. I recommend trying them all, but get guac to really fill out the experience. Once you have tried them all, or for those who don't experience food FOMO, focus in and don't bother with anything else other than the shrimp. Just trust me . . . ENJOY
When someone says we're going to eat out in Brooklyn, I used to say ". . . Why. . . ?" and give a stank face.
Ladies and gentlemen, I promise you that if you are afraid of Brooklyn, you must shake this fear, because some of the best and most creative eating establishments exist on that other side of the pond. Take SUZUME for example. I went here the other night for a late night dinner in the middle of the thunder and lighting apocalypse that was taking place. Turns out I ended up ordering the entire menu. First, I went for the Aloha Taco Program because who doesn't want to be a part of that club. This provides you with a sample platter of their tacos.
Next, (and prepare yourself), I went with a spicy salmon roll. So now there is sushi and tacos in one room. (Something I get very excited about). After the oober fresh and beautiful presented sushi roll, I moved on to noodles. (I KNOW!! SO MUCH GOING ON). And I was absolutely blown away by not just the flavor and taste, but the simplicity and fresh ingredients floating about in my glorious ramen bowl. Lastly I must discuss the beverages. I had an infused tequila which my sensitive little taste buds first lashed out at, but after a few sips, it was a warming and delicious addition to the meal. Oozing with coolness, providing a cheap yet totally classy option for dinner, and only seating a mere 15 patrons at one time on the corner of Metropolitan and Lorimer, Suzume has stolen my culinary heart.
Thirsty Thursday will be taking place this week at Crown Victoria, self nick-named Crown Vic. Head over the Williamsburg and feast your eyes on a very epic yet totally not over-hyped beer garden in Williamsburg. They have pitchers of delicious beers on tap, and they also have a photo booth. What's not to love. Also don't worry abut drunchies because their food menu is to die for (I recommend the brusselsprouts). So grab some friends and head to the huge back lot behind the restaurant for some beers and twinkling patio lights. Drink up!
Are you as excited as I am that it's already Tuesday again?!? Taco Tuesday has taken a turn for the rugged as we head to the 2nd Street and Ave A famous Taco Truck. Though it is often a late night hit, I recommend trying out this cheap and delicious taco jam this Tuesday. Suggested menu choices: Steak, Chicken, or Carnitas, with salsa verde and extra cilantro if you're a cilantro addict like me. Served with turnip slices and a spritz of delicious lime, these tacos never disappoint, and they also never dent the wallet. Happy TT!
If you're looking for a nice new good ol fashioned bakery and sandwich spot, I have found it for you. You're welcome. Just beneath Canal, Sharkey's Cafe is the place to find that perfectly crafted sandwich you have been gunnin' for. A little birdy turned me on to the spot, so I tried it for lunch just the other day, and got the Francis Sandwich (pictured above). I have 0 regrets about this decision. So I recommend you get yourself to Sharkey's for a delicious hearty and oh so fresh snack sometime this week . . .
This Thirsty Thursday, cool down underground at Fedora. The drinks are true works of art, cocktails starting at $14. Check out the menu and take your time because each and every one has something different to offer. The MMM...It Does Go Well With Chicken is actually really really delicious, just saying the name with full confidence is the first step, then the rest is easy. I also suggest the Songbird and Cousins & Barbecue. See you there lovas . . .
