Gradys cold brew

Posted on by Sophies

“There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.” Mark Twain, a Biography

Freshly back from a cheeky trip to Williamsburg (all in the name of research), the stand out food theme seems to be same ingredient served in 3 different ways.  Paul Winch-Furness I am not, so apologies for the terrible photos, but if you are headed that way, here were my highlights….

MAISON PREMIERE kicked off with a Brooklyn institution for Martha’s Vineyard oysters & epic cocktails

REYNARD  trout with grilled radish & herb salad plus stand out dish, parsnip salad – pureed, roasted & fried.

ROBERTA’S full of surprises, who know broccoli, kale & kohlrabi with anchovy would be a trip highlight? Broccoli prepared 3 ways, naturally!  Perfect pizza too.

HOTEL DELMANO wonderful sparkling reisling & snow crab legs

LOCANDA VINI & OLII far too many Sage Jermaine’s, saved by pasta 3 ways.  Great eclectic crowd.

FIVE LEAVES bruleed grapefruit, house picked ginger & fresh mint – a fruit transformed, genius!

RYE effortlessly makes old school glamour feel fresh & current.  Loved this place.

IDES heavenly views, inside & out.

Three ways in the mental kaleidoscope, who knows what will come out…
