where to drink this weekend
Achilles Heel, 180 West St, Greenpoint.
it’s no surprise that i’m a bit neighborhood-obsessed. and, well, borough-dedicated. if you don’t know of Achilles Heel, it’s from the man who brought us roberta’s, marlow & sons, among other emblematic brooklyn mainstays. this bar, tucked away on charming west st. of NoGreePo, was meant to embody the feeling of sailor’s leaving the shipyard after a long day at sea. although i doubt that they demanded the craftsmanship put into the exquisitely-curated cocktail menu, you’ll be charmed. trust me.
where to eat this weekend
Roberta’s Pizza Takeover at ISA, 348 Wythe Ave, Williamsburg.
AH well speaking of roberta’s! their impeccably delicious pies are migrating west for the rest of march for a non-hostile pizza takeover at williamsburg mainstay ISA. get a pizza and literally anything else on the menu, because everything at ISA is fantastic.
