A new restaurant, Colonie, opened up in Brooklyn Heights and has quickly become our favorite date night spot. The food is AMAZING – the sticky date cake with salted creme fraiche ice cream is one of the best thing I’ve ever eaten. I didn’t even know I liked dates! But not only that, the design of the whole place is gorgeous. When we were there the other night I noticed this light fixture made from glass carafes attached to a wooden ceiling, pictured above and below. I love the way it looks. Such a clever idea!
