This lively cookbook celebrates Brooklyn’s
happening bar culture—from the mixologists who craft classic and
original cocktails to the talented chefs who create delicious dishes
made with fresh-from-the-market ingredients to accompany the drinks.
Brooklyn Bar Bites
covers the offerings of the current crop of popular neighborhood bars,
cocktail lounges, and restaurants. A variety of classic and inventive
cocktails from Brooklyn’s best bartenders—from a Classic Old Fashioned
to a Kimchi Bloody Mary—are showcased. The accompanying dishes range
from simple bar snacks, sandwiches, and crostini to small plates.
Recipes include Grilled Scallop Ceviche, Ricotta Crostini, and
Southern-Style Crispy Pimento Cheese.
This entertaining cookbook is also
filled with anecdotes about the eateries and their locales. Among the
bars featured are the Long Island Bar, a once-gritty riverfront joint
that is now an elegant cocktail lounge; Clover Club, with its old-world
speakeasy vibe; and Williamsburg’s chic Maison Premiere, known for its
oyster bar happy hour and absinthe cocktail menu.
With stunning food and
location photography, Brooklyn Bar Bites is the perfect companion for food lovers and a must for home mixologists.
