For everyone who loves food and loves Brooklyn, mark your calendars for a foodstravaganza called Dine in Brooklyn, affectionately known as Restaurant Week to many: 21-31 March!

Three restaurants in my ‘hood, DUMBO, are featured:

  • Water Street Restaurant (with a deliciously Southernish-geared menu)
  • The River Cafe (which I cannot afford without mortgaging a kidney)
  • Bubby’s Brooklyn (bring your fleet of 9 children and your patience!)

Lots of other great fare in other great neighborhoods will be featured, and thank god there is no train service planned for the F line. Woot woot! I’m sure I’ll be kicking myself for that statement in the very near future. I feel the tourists and residents of other boroughs who “miss trees” will be flooding DUMBO soon. I’ll not be able to walk on my own sidewalk in a matter of days. Alas, that’s the price you pay for living in a fabulous neighborhood on the waterfront. Happy weekend, everyone!! xoxo

Trees featured in this photo formerly resided in Empire Fulton Ferry State Park in DUMBO, Brooklyn. They were “removed” (read: cut down) to make room for Jane’s Carousel, “a gift to the park.” Thanks for the “gift,” Jane, I preferred the weeping willows.
