5th Ave in Park Slope is the O.G. of quality Brooklyn dining, with restaurants like al di là among the first to bring fine dining to the borough. Tonight, some of the best and brightest will be appearing at the annual Taste of 5th Avenue, taking place at the Grand Prospect Hall.

I should have been laughing at my friend’s Jaws jokes, but instead I climbed underneath the bar, hugging my wine and wishing for Xanax. Before I started sitting shiva for my laughter, however, I remembered that amid the steady stream of alt-right memes and clips of Trump telling Billy Bush exactly where he likes to grab women, the internet also provides escapes from the political melee swirling around us. Reductress is one of the best ports in the storm.
Wowie, would you get a load of this weather?! I don’t know whether to be happy or slightly alarmed that it’s late October and I had to run my AC for the past two nights, but I gotta admit that the sun feels good on my face this afternoon so I’m going with it! It’s sort […]
Walking into smallhome, a matchbox-sized storefront on Metropolitan near the Graham Avenue stop on the L train in Williamsburg, feels like spiriting through a portal to rural America.
