This place deserves its own thread, although it's also part of the discussion about how eating in Bushwick has changed. I reviewed it this week. I think it's just over that borderline where you tell people you should go there just to go Faro; as contrasted with Northeast Kingdom, which was an essential place to know about if you were ever in the neighborhood. I've been trying to locate Fritzl's in those terms. I definitely do tell people to make a journey to Fritzl's, but that's because I'm talking to people who are interested in restaurants and the new forms they could take in New Y
Sneakeater posted a topic in New YorkThis Nigerian restaurant on Central Avenue in Bushwick is great. Now I'm not going to go all Robert Sietsema on you and pretend to be an expert on whatever kind of cheap ethnic food I stumble upon. I've had Nigerian food a few times, and this seemed to me to be light years better. In fact, this may well be the best African restaurant food I've ever had. The flavors are very deep; the spice is subtle but there; the flavor combinations just work. And as embarrassing as it is for someone who's loved Amos Tutuola's books for something like 40 years, this was the first time I've ever dru
Sneakeater posted a topic in New YorkMaite opened maybe last year. It's another example of a pedigreed chef returning to her ethnic roots -- here, Colombian -- but tricking them up with exemplary Euro-style kitchen technique. Here, she also fuses the base cuisine -- mainly, in this case, with Italian (the chef worked at Il Buco), with some Basque accents (the chef has family in Euskadi). I would not call this a destination. But if you're in Morgantown (nobody calls it that anymore), it's very well worth a visit. Very very well. One thing that's odd is that the food is kind of spicy. I did not experience that in actua
Fritzl's Lunch BoxI think wilfrid really nailed fritzl's lunch box. really, really well done sandwiches aren't worth getting too excited about or a long train ride, but they do make good eating. I do think the dumplings show they can do a lot more. the burger and the chicken sandwich are great, and the pasta dish is good too. the burrito special I had on my first visit is probably the best mexican food I've had in NY but it wasn't available two days later. good news for people who like sandwiches indeed.
Brooklyn Bread LabThis is a bakery owned by the still-under-construction Williamsburg Hotel. The chef is Adam Leonti, previously the chef de cuisine at Vetri and soon to be the chef at the upcoming Italian restaurant in the Williamsburg Hotel (which will probably open around April or May). The location is on Moore Street in Bushwick. When you get off the L and walk past Roberta's, keep walking another block. It's inside one of those garages, across the street from the Wonton factory. It's a two man operation. Just Leonti and his sous chef baking breads and snacks, using boutique flours that they mill t
