Putting Green, An Awesome New Mini Golf Course For Good In Brooklyn

mini golfMonths back, I came across a Time Out NY article about a new mini golf course coming to the Williamsburg (Brooklyn) waterfront this summer.

We visit Williamsburg pretty often, so I kept an eye out for more info as to when the new mini golf course would open. Not only would mini golf be fun for the kids, the course also would be doing some good in a couple of ways. Continue reading Putting Green, An Awesome New Mini Golf Course For Good In Brooklyn

New Brooklyn Pizza Shop From Lucali’s Mark Iacono Opening Next Week

Pizza Brooklyn’s pizza shop Lucali ranks at the top of the best pizzerias in America on just about every list each year.

Food Review: The Burger & Wings From Teddy’s Bar & Grill- Brooklyn, NY

Teddy's Bar & GrillI’d place burgers at this point as my second favorite food, just behind pizza.

Over the years, I’ve tried burgers at some of the top places in New York City. I’ve also sought out burgers from some of the oldest and most classic bars and restaurants in the area.

One of my favorite burgers in the country is served at Peter Luger Steakhouse open since 1887. Another excellent burger can be had at Keen’s Steakhouse which opened in 1885. While I love Old Town Bar (open since 1892), we weren’t big fans of their cheeseburger. Continue reading Food Review: The Burger & Wings From Teddy’s Bar & Grill- Brooklyn, NY

Is NYC’s Di Fara Pizza Destination Worthy?

Di Fara PizzaDi Fara Pizza, located in the Midwood area of Brooklyn, NY is considered to be one of the best pizzerias in the country.

The pizzeria is in a bizarre location considering that it’s located is a predominately Jewish area with just about all kosher shops. Regardless, people frequently make the trek to Avenue J to try a slice.

Years back, it made headlines for charging $5 per slice which is definitely pricey for pizza but not overly ridiculous these days. Continue reading Is NYC’s Di Fara Pizza Destination Worthy?

Brooklyn PizzaPaulie Gee’s opened in Greenpoint, Brooklyn back in 2010. Long lines soon followed, with many wanting to try some of his great Brooklyn pizza.
