3 x 3 delicious eateries in Brooklyn

Things are being brewed, boiled, fried and baked in New York’s Brooklyn district. It’s a foodie’s paradise, no matter whether you’re looking for a coffee, a good glass of whiskey or a delicious dinner. Here are some tasty suggestions of new and slightly more established venues that will ensure you devour some quality calories during your trip.

Vinegar Hill

A neighborhood restaurant focusing on quality rather than quantity. Really delicious food is the order of the day. A haven located on a quiet, beautiful back street. Recently, the Michelin guide discovered this gem of a restaurant hidden behind a green door, and gave it a glowing recommendation. Woody Allen is now set to use the restaurant as a location in an upcoming movie. It’s probably a good idea to book a table before the movie is released.

Soul food på Ma-n-Pop

Bedford Stuyvesant used to have the reputation of being one of Brooklyn’s rowdier neighborhoods, but now the New York Times believes the area, with its old brownstowns, is “up and coming”. If you’re in the area, it's worth popping your head into Ma-n-Pop, and ennjoy its quirky, homely atmosphere. Here, it’s breakfast all day long. The menu is crammed with some of the most untrendy dishes such as mac ‘n’ cheese, chicken, sweet potato, pancakes and fried prawns, all, of course, served in huge portions. No alcohol is available, but a pint of homemade lemonade will go a long way to quencing your thirst.

Three places to drink

Brooklyn Brewery

In the past, there were breweries on every street corner. But in the 1970s, they lost out to the large national conglomerates. The locally-produced beer were considered to be less refined. But now local brews have become popular again, and one of the microbreweries at the vanguard of this wave of popularity is Brooklyn Brewery. You can take a tour of the brewery or just enjoy a tasting session, but expect big crowds.Various types of tour are offered 365 days a year. For reasons of hygiene and safety, sandals or open shoes are off the menu.

Whisky på Kings Country Distillery

The raw materials used to produce the distillery’s whiskey come exclusively from the state of New York. Every Saturday from 2 pm onwards, curious visitors can enjoy a tour of distillery and sample some of the product.

The distillery offers drop-in tours, but recommends that you book in advance, especially if you’re coming in a party of more than ten. Open from Tuesday to Sunday.

Barrows Intense Ginger

This liqueur has only three ingredients - sugar, water and ginger. The truth is, founder Josh Morton didn’t plan to turn his passion for alcohol, usually a limoncello he made for the residents of the apartments in Barrow Street, Manhattan, into a business. His friends loved it and, abracadabra, he had an investor. He has now moved production to a premises in Sunset Park that can cope with the demand. Today, his liqueur is being sold in a variety of liquor shops and restaurants across Brooklyn, as well as in several other states.For details of where you can get your hands on a bottle, visit the website.

Four & Twenty Blackbirds

Emily and Melissa Elsen were taught to bake by mother, grandmother and aunts at home in the rural state of South Dakota. When they finally ended up in the same town, they started baking pies using lavender, blueberries, rhubarb, mint and all the ingredients they could get their hands on in the local area. They opened their first coffee shop in 2010, but currently have several branches in Brooklyn and Long Island, and their pies are also being sold at a number of selected restaurants and cafes. They have been named artisan company of the year and have published a cookbook, which has been translated into both Swedish and French.

Liddabit Sweets

Confectioners Liz Gutman and Jen King wanted to cross candy and crafts, and so Lidabit Sweets was born. They had no investors and couldn’t afford the most expensive chocolate, so this placed more emphasis on the fillings. This resulted in sweet and delicious products such as The King Bar, inspired by Elvis Presley's favorite - a banana and peanut butter sandwich. Today, business is brisk and they sell their products in several locations in New York.
