Bklyn Larder 02-02-2014

Location: 228 Flatbush Ave BK
Time: 5pm
People: RB, CK and myself

Feelings: Bklyn Larder, located right next to the 2/3 train Bergen station, is a fantastic cheese and provisions shop that specializes in sustainable, high quality food like hand-crafted cheeses, meats and prepared food. Not quite gently priced, you will see $30/lb cheeses, $10 peanut butter and $7.50 wheat free flour mix. Yes, this is one of those Brooklyn neighborhood shops, but you can't beat the wide selection of everything gourmet. It is a one-stop gourmet heaven.

It is difficult to find a good whoopie pie in NYC. Most are dry and stale, overly sugary mess. Not the case at Bklyn Larder. I hate using the word moist, but heck with it, I'll use it for this. It is a moist piece of whoopie goodness ($3). It is airy yet rich, and frosting is not too sweet or sticky. Even if you hate whoopie pies you can not help but love this delicious treat.

The breakfast menu looks amazing like cheddar and bacon scones and cheddar and scallion frittata sandwich on a buttermilk biscuit. And one cannot help but notice that the people behind the counter are friendly and extremely professional, which is a huge selling point for specialty store like this one. However, if you want ice cream or gelato, Ample Hills is just around the corner.

We saw a guy in front of us buying loads of food and local beer for his Superbowl party here...now that's the kind of party I would really love to attend. But whether fancy beer and cheese or the canned stuff on crackers with a PBR, Percy Harvin was fantastic on Sunday. Proud to be a Gator!
