East Williamsburg / Bushwick, Brooklyn

A decade ago this was the middle of nowhere, today it's the center of the universe for a generation of young foodies. So we'll spend a day and visit a whole grain bread baking lab, an artisan chocolate maker, a new ramen shop and few great new restaurants while we're out there.

Upcoming Airdates

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.

Chinatown/ Wilson Tang Nom Wah Tea Parlor

Wilson Tang Nom Wah Tea Parlor is the oldest continuously operated Dim Sum restaurant in the country. Located on historic Doyer street the Tang Family has owned it since the 60's and now grandson Wilson has taken into the 21st century. We'll spend a day with him at Nom Wah and take a walk around the hood to see it from his eyes.

Bordeaux Part 1

In one of the most revered wine growing regions of the world the big name, ultra luxe first growths may dominate the high end market, but we thought we'd visit the other 97% of Bordeaux, the small family farmer growers during the historic near perfect 2015 harvest in September of that year. Of course we'll hit a bunch of restaurants, a cooperage to see oak barrels assembled, a bakery and a few markets while we're there in both these episodes.
