New York Food and Drink

  1. Breakfast in Brooklyn
    I always love to try different breakfast spots and different kinds of breakfast dishes. I read about "Bakeri" on Foursquare and saw it was in our neighbourhood. So we walked from Long Island City over to Greenpoint in Brooklyn, an up-and-coming neighbourhood with lots of house renovations going on as well as many nice-looking restaurants on our way. And "Bakeri" kept its promise from Foursquare. I loved the interior, very warm and welcoming with a large table in the middle, a counter where you can buy either buy your bread and pastries to go or to stay, and a table to sit at and watch the ladies in the bakery going about their daily work. We chose to sit and watch the goings-on in the bakery and had our coffee, smoothie, and egg dishes while we did. Delicious, fresh, friendly, and warm! Yeah!! Loved it!

  2. Brunch in Brooklyn
    And no visit to the US is complete with a proper brunch. So on our last day, we read about "Anella", again located in the Greenpoint area of Brooklyn. We liked the look and feel and the items on the menu sounded delicious, so we reserved a table. The restaurant is divided into two long rooms and is furnished with warm wood and a large bar which leads me to believe it is not only a good spot for brunch. Our table was right at the window and we felt looked after by the team very well. They offer a great choice of dishes from the classic American breakfast, to vegetarian options and more uncommon breakfast items. Food was delicious, service very friendly and fast combined with a warm, comfy atmosphere!!

  3. Drinks in Long Island City
    The Fifth Hammer Brewing company is one of a few breweries that have recently opened up in Long Island City. Located in an old warehouse it is open 7 days a week and we went late on Monday afternoon. Cool, warehouse-type atmosphere, an entertaining guy behind the bar, lots of space, a great bar to sit at, and yes, a great variety of beers! They offer what they call NYC-style IPA's, rye amber ale's, their own beer in cans to go, and much more. If you are in the area, it's a must-visit in my opinion!!
