All I can say is that I had a lemon posset.

The prime rib is sort of English.

The lamb ribs in yoghurt are not remotely English.

I remember quail on toast my nanny used to serve for meat tea.

Not.

The wood pigeon on toast recipe I habitually make is English.

Okay, game bird on a crouton, preferably slathered with guts. But it’s British a bit like terrapin stew is American.

Of course it's precious.  This is Brooklyn.

But I don't want to devalue this place.

 

You make a lemon posset and I'm fucking THERE.

I made lemon posset for dessert a week ago. It came out great. (Also, maybe one of the easiest desserts to make ever, other than scooping some ice cream out of a purchased container of ice cream).

The lamb ribs in yoghurt are not remotely English.

Maybe not technically, but they'd fit in anywhere along Brick Lane in London.

Regarding the douche contingent of Greenpoint, I expect it be growing exponentially over the next few years. The Southern section is for sure going down - the one-two punch of Matchless closing, and now Enid's across the street going belly-up, does not bode well.

That said, there are many variants of douchebaggery in our city. While both are obvious members of Family Douchae, The North Brooklyn Douche (subgenus of Brooklyn Douche) has many unique traits that distinguish it from genus Lower Manhattan Douche.

Might be the terroir.

I went through the north end of Greenpoint this morning, and those are some BIG buildings they’re putting up.
