2 great brooklyn restaurants

minimalistic bar

 

hanging with the bff, we have the strangest way of making decisions. “Oh, I’ve never been to this restaurant, but the name is cool, let’s go.” And, that’s how we ended up at COOKLYN. Good thing the food and service was amazing. We normally frequent the same ol neighborhood restaurant, but I’m so happy we ventured out, especially since this was kind of a late birthday dinner for bae.

great wine, great food, and even better service… you must try this place. I don’t know if it matters to you, but I’m a weirdo, and I loved that the entire staff was good looking. I’ll be back to try the lobster mac and cheese, and the duck duck cous!

I heard brooklyn crab is the place to go for amazing crabs. And that was the plan when I decided to head to Red Hook, but after a long day, cracking crabs open was not going to happen. Instead mussels, fried shrimp, and crab rolls were ordered. And not ONE regret was given.

I really thought OLD BAY seasoning on fries or anything that wasn’t seafood was a philly thing. So you can imagine my hypeness when I saw  that item on the menu. in my world OLD BAY seasoning is the best thing discovered. so, thank you BC for taking me back to a place I love!

A summer isn’t considered “summer,” until you’ve had crab legs. So BC I’ll definitely be back, sometime in July.

look at bae... out there shining!
