Red Hook Eats in The News

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.

Good News for People Who Like Lobster News

Looks like the folks at the Red Hook Lobster Pound have hooked up with Rocky Sullivan’s to offer lobster to the people.  Friday nights through the end of the year, per the tip from Eater.

A Triumphant Return

So we’ve sort of fallen off the map here while the website got a shiny new update.

After you check it out, read this nice little write-up on Fort Defiance, which I didn’t even know had moved into the neighborhood.
And to make up for lost time- apparently no one can get enough of the lobster rolls from the Red Hook Lobster Pound.

We’ll be back before three more weeks pass- promise!
