Even though I live in a region where alcohol reigns over religion, I’ve never really been into drinking. I’m definitely not into drinking just to drink (and in this region, that’s putting it kindly, because let’s face it, the culture I’m surrounded by has one purpose when they open a bottle, and one purpose only – to get DRUNK!), a favorite past time of “Otherners,” but I will say that I do appreciate good wine.
It’s not just that wonderfully eclectic, artsy, fashion-forward land across the bridge; it’s a state of mind. A Brooklyn state of mind…and my mind, as always, is on food!
Two things you should know about me: I love to travel and I love food! I could talk about food for days. So fortunately, on a recent trip to New York City we stayed with a good friend and chef who toured us around some of the best restaurants, bars, coffee shops and bakeries in the city.
