“On Evan’s very first brew day here, he got heatstroke.” -Craig Frymark Simply put, local upstart Barrier Brewing is killing it. The year-old, two-man operation has already made a name for itself by brewing an impressive variety of notably well-crafted beers on a tiny single-barrel brewing system, out of a small garage-like space in Oceanside, New York. Evan [...]

Editors Note: Long before it was culinary chic to retrofit a truck to sling awesome food, the Red Hook Ballfield Vendors started doing it out of necessity.

Christopher Nicholson’s day job is interesting enough. His daily commute takes him from his Greenpoint home to the Red Hook harborfront, where he’s a winemaker at the Red Hook Winery , shepherding Long Island and Finger Lakes grapes through the long and complex journey from vine to barrel to bottle. But his other work may be even [...]

by Jacque Lynn Schiller The Clover Club in Cobble Hill is, if anything, gorgeous: rich wood, tin ceilings, chandeliers… But don’t let the opulence intimidate. 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. These dinners are a somewhat regular occurrence – with so much time spent at work, hand-crafting his line of pates, sausages, and rillettes, Scott loves the chance [...]
