Blue Connoisseur: Bushwick - Brooklyn

Written by
Lauren Grisanti

Bushwick

I lived in the neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn on and off for three years. Housing improvements have transformed the neighborhood, attracting many young artists and creative types. This place is filled with corner 24 hour bodegas, amazing hispanic food and graffiti covered buildings. It seems there isn’t a long checklist for opening a bar in Bushwick, active nightlife has several sprouting up every month. Another reason why this neighborhood is a bubble for 20 somethings.

Bushwick is straight off the L train if traveling from Manhattan, and I’ll be focused mainly on places in and around the Morgan and Jefferson stop.

Faro

436 Jefferson St, Brooklyn, NY 11237

(718) 381-8201

Faro is a stand out, mainly because it’s one of the only Michelin awarded destinations in Brooklyn. The restaurant supply of pasta changes seasonally, every time I go the menu looks completely different. What I like most is the exposed kitchen, ability to see chefs preparing your meal and smelling every dish that’s prepared.  Try the Peekytoe Crab as an appetizer, the aioli it comes with is outstanding.

 

Pitanga

207 Starr Street, Brooklyn, NY 11237

(718) 456-1048

This is a good place for a healthy breakfast, and a strong cup of Kitten Coffee.  The menu is vegetarian and there’s a serious selection of Acai bowls along with homemade Brazilian cheese bread. Produce distributors have to cater to restaurants such as this who want to offer patrons organic and non-GMO menu options. You’ll find a great crowd of Saturday morning post yoga go-ers and freelancers typing away.

 

Archie’s Bar & Pizza

128 Central Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11221

(347) 915-2244

https://www.archiesbrooklyn.com/

This is a true local hang out.  The food (pizza, salad, pasta) isn’t what makes it great, it’s the friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere.  Archie’s was once a place for my friend's kid's 4th birthday party, appropriately Ninja Turtle themed. Check out the ever evolving collection of illustrated paper plates behind the bar gifted by customers.

 

Syndicated

40 Bogart Street, Brooklyn, NY 11206

718-386-3399

http://syndicatedbk.com/

Sitting right next to a Boar's Head meat distributor factory, you’ll find the Syndicated - designed just like an old school theatre.  Go here for a movie where they serve you dinner and fancy popcorn at your seat. No high tech ordering software or anything, simply a piece of paper the waitress picks up before and during the screening. The pulled pork sliders are great, they also have a good selection of local beers on tap like KCBC and Brooklyn Brewery.
