The Almondine Bakery now has a second location in Park Slope!

The former pastry chef from Le Bernardin and Windows on the World Hervé Poussot has been serving up delectable treats at this French patisserie in Brooklyn for quite some time now.

Using ultra fresh ingredients, Almondine offers a host of fresh-baked French goods such as croissants, fruit tarts, muffins, macarons, baguettes, pastries and more. They serve delicious coffee using La Colombe beans from Philadelphia and a decadent hot chocolate made with Valrhona chocolate.

The Park Slope Almondine is housed in a small cozy space with a working fireplace, which seats about 25. Located right by the train station, it is really hard not to make a small detour to start your day just right!

Park Slope can truly boast about this neighborhood gem, which serves up simple, seasonally inspired, delicious food.

Al di La Trattoria is a charming little Italian restaurant where meals are artfully prepared in a rustic environment.

 

The story behind Al di La  is simple…

 

 “Anna Klinger and Emiliano Coppa

met while she was travelling through Italy

 they fell in love, moved to Brooklyn,

and opened a restaurant

 the rest, as they say, is history

 - al di la trattoria -

serving Venetian inspired food since 1998

 It is just as straightforward as that!”

 

At Al di La, they are not trying to re-invent the wheel or bring out super inventive, stellar dishes that blow your mind each night. They serve simple food, made from really great ingredients, that tastes marvelous!

 And in that very simplicity they manage to Al di La (to go beyond)!

 

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

 

Heritage Pork Belly Sandwich

 

 

Tagliatelle Al Ragu

 

Funghi E Polenta

Tagliatelle with Olive Oil

Chiles & Chocolate: Oaxacan Kitchen, Park Slope, NYC

 

I was intrigued by this little restaurant that was dedicated to my two favorite foods of all time – chilies and chocolate.

So of-course I had to trek over to Park Slope to check out this charming joint, that has carved out a niche of its own. This tiny restaurant can only seat about 16 people at a time. Its very informal and the server was very friendly. Read the rest of this entry
