Fort Greene

Evelina

IMG_7637.jpg

Overview:

The team behind Emporio and Aurora have created the centrally located Fort Greene locale, Evelina. The bustling space is designed with deep blue banquettes, rustic wood, a sprawling bar and mosaic tiles. The Mediterranean-Italian menu focuses on seasonal ingredients in pastas and shareable plates, with a number of items prepared on a wood-fired grill. The pasta is notably tasty, like squid ink malloreddus with crab meat, sea urchin & chili or the strangozzi carbonara with porcini mushrooms & shaved Perigord trufflles. The restaurant is particularly great for a casual weeknight dinner or weekend brunch.

Dekalb Market Hall


Overview

New York's newest food hall has arrived, this time in downtown Brooklyn. The ambitious project houses 40 vendors with a massive variety in cuisine types. You will find famous NYC staples like Katz's & The Arepa Lady as well as many newcomers. Whether you are craving poke, paella or pierogies, your needs will be satisfied here. I would opt for the more adventurous items and try Korean steamed buns from Bunsmith , grilled Pakistani meats at BK Jani, or Vietnamese plates from Bunker. The hall is also equipped with a show kitchen, cocktail bar & daily live programming.

Lady's


Overview 

Apparently Fort Greene is the next hip neighborhood and Lady's is the newest example of that fact. The atmosphere is sophisticated with elegant dark wood accents and an open kitchen that spans the space. The food is accessible Italian cuisine including Neapolitan pizza and house-made pastas. Share refined small plates with a large focus on vegetables. If you're looking for a fun Sunday activity, grab one of their bacon, egg and cheese pizzas and then take in a show at BAM across the street. I'm amazing at planning dates, I know.
