One of my favorite places to visit is New York City. Last weekend we got a chance to visit our friends, Ken & Elyse. They have taken us on many foodie adventures. They first introduced us to many places in New York City that have become our favorites, places like Death & Company and Hearth to name a couple. This trip they introduced us to a new favorite place for cocktails, Dutch Kills.
We spent a day walking down the streets in their Brooklyn neighborhood, to some of their favorite spots. We started out with a hearty breakfast from Buttermilk Channel. The pancakes at Buttermilk ~ swoon-able!
and good friends to share it with! (We’re firm believers in the inspirational power of cold beer and sweet potato fries here at LoveFeast ~ you can read that story, here ~ Where It All Started…)
We ended the day in the artfully hobbled together funky restaurant, Vinegar Hill House. This is where I made the faux paux of whipping out my super big lens and snapping a flashy pic of the kitchen from my vantage point of the bar stool, where we enjoyed expertly made pre-dinner cocktails. The flash went off in a poof startling myself and causing the chef and practically everyone else in the kitchen to nearly whip their heads off their necks in my direction. I had proven, Elyse joked, that you really can’t take a blogger anywhere. So, I put away my camera and enjoyed.
We kept giggling over it in during our garden meal at the back of the restaurant.
The last picture I dared to take from the outside the restaurant as we were leaving ~ it’s a charming place to go even with a camera-wielding-tourist-blogger and especially with good friends ~ if you’re in the neighborhood.
