I’ve lost count of the number of visits to New York. But, Brooklyn seems to be another world. Why don’t I make it here more often? If I were to compare it to Los Angeles distance wise, it would be like going from Downtown to Silverlake. It’s really nothing, a quick train and you really are in a new place. Thanks to one of our very own Poketo crew, Joe, a former New Yorker, we got some tips to the sweet spots in Williamsburg. The #1 being Fette Sau. The best bbq, hands down. We ordered a couple of pounds of pulled pork, brisket, and pork ribs… one of the best bbq I’ve ever had, period.
Then it was off to Mast Brothers Chocolate Tasting Room and Factory. The tour, we were too late to attend, but, the tasting room was the amuse-bouche to our next visit. Can’t wait.
We picked up a few chocolates… Vanilla Smoke, Stumptown Coffee x Mast Brothers, and an Almond Marine Sea Salt. Ended it with a couple night caps of Smoky Velvets at the Roebling Tea Room. A place like this, Angie could get her tea and fries and I got a nice cocktail. Perfect.
