Happy WIAW! I'm doing it a little different today. Instead of blogging a full day of food, I'm sharing a few different things I tried recently. So here we go…
On Saturday I decided to visit Red Hook, Brooklyn for a culinary adventure. There's a free ferry on the weekends from downtown so the boyfriend and I decided to take advantage and do a little exploring(and eating and drinking).
We got to Red Hook around 1:30 and we were starving so our first stop was Brooklyn Crab. It was adorable! There were a few floors with amazing views of the water and Manhattan, plus a few activities like mini golf and corn hole.
We knew we'd be stopping a few places so we decided to share something and then move on. We ordered the Wild Atlantic Cod with fries and coleslaw and a couple beers. So delicious! And I loved that it came on faux newspaper like fish and chips from England.
We split the truffled eggs and parm with potatoes and warm raisin-walnut bread. The bread was INCREDIBLE. I want to go back and eat a whole loaf. I also had a glass of prosecco because they were serving it from a tap, which I found bizarre. It was just okay – probably would have been fine in a mimosa, but I wouldn't drink it alone.
Our last stop for the day was for dessert – Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pie. I cannot say enough good things about this place! It was adorable and the pie was so yummy!
We split a swingle – a mini key lime pie dipped in chocolate, served on a stick. Delicious!
It ended up being the perfect day! Everything was fantastic and I had a great time getting to know Red Hook.
