RECAP: We checked out La Esquina’s new outpost in Williamsburg. We had a chance to try a couple of cocktails and 4 desserts there, the flourless chocolate cake w/ espresso and cinnamon ice cream being our favorite. The staff was amicable and eager to please, leaving us with a Friends & Family feedback form to fill out after our experience. Pichet Ong will be consulting on desserts.
Thanks to TONY for this…
Nolita’s Mexican hot spot brings its tacos and tortas to Williamsburg withCafé de la Esquina at Wythe Diner on August 8. Like the Manhattan original, this outpost is divided into distinct areas, including a takeout taqueria in front, an outdoor garden and a classic diner with brown booths. Retire to the candlelit backroom, featuring dark wood tables and mirrors painted with Mexican-style murals, for chef Akhtar Nawab’s menu of more refined plates, like chile de árbol–braised-brisket taquitos with pickled cabbage and gaujillo chili. You’ll also find the outfit’s signature dishes, including fish tacos, chicken tortilla soup, and grilled corn with lime mayo, chili and cotija cheese. Drinkers can choose from a selection of 100 sipping tequilas and mezcals, such as Don Julio 1800 Coleccion, Del Maguey Pechuga and Casa Noble Crystal. 225 Wythe Ave between North 3rd St and Metropolitan Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (esquinabk.com)MORE INFO AND VIDEO FROM THE FEAST
This place lies in an exploding culinary neighborhood, Williamsburg. White everywhere is the first thing you will notice when you step inside. Yes, even the plants and its branches are painted white. We loved the fact that even the plates were mostly white, for this provided for an awesome backdrop for contrast in our food pictures. Just when we had almost lost hope in hidden gems for sushi, 1or8 reinstilled our faith. This place has been on our bookmarks for quite some time now, but we ended up here randomly, thanks to a late night suggestion from a friend. Boy, do we love kismet like that. Continue reading →
Creative minds converge for this event with food being the principle medium. Presented at Rouge58 Gallery in Williamsburg, artists will document 7 days of their personal eating experience, from zero to x “meals” a day, culminating in exclusive works using whichever media they prefer–photo, paint, jewelry, fashion, film, music, etc. The idea is that from food, we derive pleasure, satisfaction, energy and inspiration (or vice versa) and these elements, whether cognizant of them or not, ignite our creative
fires. With “Something I Ate”, we intend to share various artists’ true perception of food & sustenance in everyday life. Continue reading →
