park slope top ten

I'm glad since the list seems to be expanding to see Beast on here, i love that place!

Sadly, i'm won't return to Applewood after an extraordinarily upsetting interaction with the host that a friend and I had last spring when we tried to go to brunch there. One of the owners responded appropriately to a letter I wrote, but it just wasn't enough to shake the utter humiliation that we experienced.

Convivium Osteria = delish!

Song I love, and the food is so good, consistently, but it's so loud in there (is it me?) that i usually wait to eat there in the summer when the back patio is open.

I've never been to Al Di La and many many people have it on their list - I'm now extremely curious...

My new favorite thing @the Park Slope Food Coop

thanks for posting - i love when these threads get started! and for the heads up about this yogurt!

recent favorites for me have been the Beurremont butter, which is fantastic (and cheap!) and the Migliorelli Pear Cider - which i know is not new but it's in season and it's amazingly refreshing and delicious.

i too share your grief over the sale of the Cloonshee Farm - meaning no more chickens. It was heartbreaking enough when the eggs stopped being available (though the natural acres & butternut farms eggs are a decent runner-up). But i have been hooked on cloonshee chicken, and just bought my last breasts the other night. sigh.

There are others that are good but i can't remember the brands, will try to remember to find out and post here.

this is a way old post that i'm just reading today, but thought i'd respond. The packages are of lacto-fermented veggies, which is a way of traditionally almost "pickling" some veggies with lactic acid (vs. vinegar). It increases the nutrition of the veggies and provides your body with really important enzymes. Generally, from what i've read, lacto-fermentation is done by separating raw (unpasturized) cow's milk into curds & whey, and using the whey to ferment the veggies. Saurkraut is a typical vegetable that is lacto-fermented. the great thing is that the veggies don't really go bad, it's like a continual fermenting process, so if you have them around for a little while, it's not like they're going to go bad.

you may also see other products which are lacto-fermented right next to those packages, like the raw saurkraut and the dilly beans from hawthorne farms.

I recommend the daikon and ginger - yummy. the beets have cloves in them and those are great also!
