“On Evan’s very first brew day here, he got heatstroke.” -Craig Frymark Simply put, local upstart Barrier Brewing is killing it.

The bar staff is friendly and know their old time cocktails. And someone in the kitchen, Executive Chef Craig Rivard to be exact, knows his bar snacks. We melted into one [...]

By Leda Meredith Two delicious vegetables plus several kinds of herbal medicine from one plant: what’s not to love? The plant is burdock ( Arctium lappa and A. minus ). One of the two vegetables it produces is in season for only a few weeks, and that season is now. I often say “One person’s weeds are another person’s dinner,” [...]

By Jackie Goldstein I recently had the pleasure of joining Scott Bridi, the founder of Brooklyn Cured , as he cooked for a small group of friends at his cousin’s apartment.
