You may remember my previous post on Botanica, my favorite bar located in Red Hook, Brooklyn. They close their doors for the winter season, so I always look forward to being able to return in warmer temperatures to their beautiful floor to ceiling windows that open onto a cobblestone street and delicious cocktails. This year’s reopening was especially exciting because they introduced food to their menu. Owner Daniel Preston brought in Michelin starred chef Saul Boulton (of Saul and The Vanderbilt) to develop a Dominican inspired menu of small plates. We went on Sunday and had (pictured clockwise from the top left corner) the avocado, tostones served with a delicious chimichurri, camerones de maya, and pernil. Everything was great, but the tostones and pernil were really amazing – not to be missed. If you’re in Brooklyn, go check it out. It makes a perfect Sunday afternoon!
