Some entertaining write-ups of some new (and not so new) neighborhood spots popped up on the Google Alert today. First, Sam Sifton with a “dining brief” on Rocky Sullivan’s lobster nights w/ the Red Hook Lobster Pound.
…Rocky Sullivan’s bar, now two years out of its original lower Lexington Avenue home, is coming into its Brooklyn own.
While we’re in the gastronomic universe, Time Out New York profiles the new to the nabe Fort Defiance. Kudos continue to come in for the bar’s signature cocktails. Plus:
The frontier pricing—most drinks are under $10 and the food maxes out in the high teens—helps justify the trek for the rest of us.
Still haven’t made it over to Fort Defiance, but I can attest for the tasty pizza and good vibes at Rocky’s (a favorite spot for post-event wind-downs for DTE staff and volunteers). Our GM, Liz, had a lobster date planned a while back, but was rained out. Hopefully when she gets back from Africa (lucky!) she’ll get us a review.
