Neighborhood News: Shortcuts

The NY Times has a whole article in their Dining section about the tasty treats at the Brooklyn Flea: Nunu Chocolates, McClure’s Pickles, Kumquat Cupcakery, Salvatore Bklyn Ricotta and more!

Blue Marble Ice Cream, the organic ice cream parlor I have been dying to pop in on every time I walk to BAM, is opening a second location in conjunction with NY City Explorers (a creative childcare center) at 186 Under hill Avenue in the prospering Prospect Heights. (Brownstoner)

Brooklyn Brewery is hosting a Pigfest under the Brooklyn Bridge on May 31st.

Yet another new pizza joint has opened up, this one is Monty's Pizza at 90 Livingston between Boerum Place and Court (110 Livingston)

The Real Fort Greene has a rundown of the best brunch places in that area which if you are eating your way thru Fort Greene post the Brooklyn Flea, might come in handy. On a similar note, I finally tried brunch at Maggie Brown's on the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill border on Myrtle Ave on Sunday and man, was it tasty. The menu has a range of interesting combinations, unique to brunch and the biscuit with raspberry butter alone was worth the bike ride over.
