Off the Wagon

More than 95% of my meals are eaten at home, and more than 95% of my food is sourced from local farmers.  But when I do “fall off the wagon,” I like to do it right. 

My latest culinary binge took place at Rosarito Fish Shack in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NYC.  I had octopus wrapped in bacon on a brioche roll topped with cole slaw.  It was so worth it.

Charred Beet and Lentil Salad

The fact that we almost never eat out makes us unusual among New Yorkers.  Last week, however, we were on a “staycation,” which meant that I didn’t cook every day.  On Friday, we took the East River Ferry over to the Greenpoint, Williamsburg, and Dumbo neighborhoods of Brooklyn — practically a foreign country to a committed Manhattanite like me.  While in Williamsburg, we stopped for lunch at a Mediterranean restaurant called Zizi Limona, which we’d read about in the “Cheap Eats” issue of New York Magazine.  $11 bought us this beautiful and delicious platter of charred beet and lentil salad with tahini and date honey sauce.  It was so sublime that it may actually get me to go to Brooklyn more than once a year.
