Since making the leap living across Bedford Ave in Williamsburg, some new restaurants have been popping up. It’s probably because of me…obviously. The best looking one has been Isa on Wythe, the cousin of Peels and Freeman’s. Apparently they could use some time to perfect their dishes say some reviews, but in the meantime check out these photos of the place via The Selby, and a few others from Jose Moran Moya also take a second to check out their whack, but amazing site.
I’m a bit of a whore for some good bread.
As of right now it’s BYOB, which is a bit of a downer as they look as if they could make a mean drink, but in the meantime, hit up the store on your way.
Loving the menu, and I don’t even know what is says yet. This needs to be on Art of the Menu ASAP.
The restaurant looks like it’s been around for years.
Damn this looks interesting, no? Survey says the dishes are small and very original, but will they fill you up?

Has anyone ever had Grady’s Cold Brew coffee before? It’s a News Orleans style iced coffee made in Brooklyn, I believe in neighboring Greenpoint. I’ve only had “News Orleans style” coffee once at Blue Bottle Coffee and it was by far the strongest iced coffee I’d had ever had. Made me jittery all day. Almost too strong that it turned me off, maybe I’m just a bitch. Stumptown also jumped on the trend, and started selling iced coffee bottles in certain areas. I’m not sure how I would feel to drink an iced/chilled coffee which was brew a few days earlier (far fresher then anything from Dunkin Donuts), or out of a glass bottle (as beautifully designed it is). Grady’s is sold at Urban Rustic on McCarren in Williamsburg and The Brooklyn Kitchen.

Has anyone ever tried Kings County Distillery’s Moonshine? Wait..moonshine!? I keep coming across the distillery which makes some powerful corn whiskey, but still has tads of sweetness. I haven’t tried it (yet), but might have to be added to my ultimate bar cart. Plus, who doesn’t want to drink moonshine from a barely marked bottle. It’s perfect in so many ways. Being from Brooklyn it’s sold all over The borough and in parts of Manhattan, but nowhere outside state lines.
Great prints by Two Arms Inc. of the two greatest hoods in all of Brooklyn. Add these to the long (growing) list of prints to buy.
So has anyone taken the East River Ferry yet? It’s still free for about a week and then it’s four bucks. Sounds amazing compared to taking the G-train this summer. It makes a number of nice stops in Greenpoint, Dumbo, two stops in Manhattan and a short walk from my place in Williamsburg. I’m on a boat badge anyone?
First photo taken by Jesse Haff at the Greenpoint stop. No credit for this one.
Headed down towards the East River in Williamsburg with Mackenzie to check out the new Sunday location for the Brooklyn Flea. I expected a different scene from the typical Fort Greene crowd, but it was all the same great food (with the addition of a stand from Saltie), fashionable people, gorgeous furniture, and your fair share of cute puppies. I fell in love with a desk constructed by Fat Dog Fabrication, which I’d love to introduce to my laptop some day. Maybe after a few paychecks and some guts to shell out the cash.
This also made me think about my favorite furniture site which I visit too much, Sit & Read, which Mackenzie showed me. With a couple locations around New York, this store has only a few hand-picked pieces of furniture and vintage book which are often sold even before they photograph them for the site. Below and the photo above are a few of my favorite pieces from Sit & Read.
I’ll be sure to give you an update (that’s worthy of it’s own post) if ever I do buy the dream desk by Fat Dog Fab.
The couch that Mackenzie found on Sit & Read. She was very close to purchasing it before it sold.
One of my favorite piece, but the price tag is way out of my budget.
Love this piece, as it’s obviously from New England, listing a few nearby towns/areas to my mother’s house.
