Red Hook, Brooklyn

Located in one of the most isolated and remote corners of the city, surrounded by water, to get there you either drive or take a bus and as we all remember it was mostly underwater after Hurricane Sandy and many of us thought it would never make a come back. Wrong. It's hotter than ever with the best BBQ spot in NYC, a local winery, great bakeshop and an artisan small batch Vermouth maker featured in this episode.

Dinnertable / Ggs

Two local East Village spots just a few blocks apart that speak to the quality vs., price debate going on these days. At both restaurants the food is lovely, the portions generous and the prices are really reasonable.
