If you haven’t ventured down to the BQE end of Carroll Gardens to experience the amazing specialty food shop known as Court Street Grocers, you are seriously overdue for a visit. The friendly proprietors have stocked their shelves with an awe-inspiring collection of superlative regional food products from all over the country–from Steve’s Key Lime Pies to real honest-to-god grits from South Carolina to a brand of chips I once devoured in Santa Cruz and never thought I’d see again. But that’s not all: the shop also provides prepared foods and some of the best sandwiches–breakfast and otherwise–that I’ve ever had in NYC. Now, on Friday nights only, they are serving a real sit-down dinner for $35 a person and I would wager just about anything that it’s awesome. Reservations should be made in advance for either the 7 or 9pm seating. This week, Ciopinno is on the menu so sign up now. –K.H.
