Sunday in Brooklyn

Mar 24 11:37am The Infatuation Feed
You can imagine the meetings that produced Sunday in Brooklyn. The team sitting around a table doing word maps about the kind of people they hoped would eat here. We can see them coming up with marketing archetypes like “Anton” and “Liza,” Williamsburg/Bushwick/Greenpoint people who wear big floppy hats inside, have part-time jobs as models for a cruelty-free leather clog company, and frequent warehouse parties that don’t start until 5am. I mean, these people named their restaurant Sunday in Brooklyn. But despite its name, and a space that feels like an amalgamation of every aspirational interior you’ve ever seen on Instagram, Sunday In Brooklyn actually isn’t as ridiculous as you might think. Sure, it feels like a place that people named Anton and Liza would hang out. But, judging by the crowd of people that also includes plenty of Courtneys and Kevins, Sunday in Brooklyn is a place pretty much anyone would want to hang out. It’s a great space, with exposed beams, a wood burning oven, and a big, nice bar. There’s lots of natural light during the day, white marble tabletops, and flowery china that looks like it came from a garage sale upstate. All of these things - plus a killer playlist and very friendly, unpretentious staff - make Sunday in Brooklyn an enjoyable place for brunch and dinner. Even if you’re here on a Wednesday. It’s the kind of place where people would go even if the food was hot garbage. Good news: it’s not. Sunday In Brooklyn does a great brunch, serving grain bowls and matcha lattes for those who just went to their hot yoga studio that’s morally opposed to powers, and patty melts and Bloody Marys for those who did too good of a job reenacting their college glory days last night. Dinner is more limited - your choices are a somewhat forgettable chicken or steak or some much weirder, much better stuff like pastrami-cured cod and sea trout in potato broth and hot buns stuffed with oyster cream. Sunday in Brooklyn is a better brunch spot than it is a dinner restaurant, but it doesn’t really matter. The reason that real people are at Sunday in Brooklyn is the vibes. (Which are only going to get better when the rooftop opens.) If you live in the neighborhood, this will probably make its way into your rotation, and if you don’t, it could be worthy of a trip - depending on your own priorities. We don’t...

Brad Lander Rips 'Outrageous & Dangerous' Proposal To Raise Speed Limit On Ocean Parkway

Mar 24 9:37am Gothamist
Felder is one of a coterie of southern Brooklyn politicians who have long chafed at road safety measures, and who have grown in volume in response to the traffic-calming road redesigns and driver regulations of Mayor de Blasio's Vision Zero initiative. In November 2014, the city reduced the default speed limit to 25 miles per hour as part of the campaign. In 2015, the Department of Transportation's Pedestrian Safety Action plan identified Ocean Parkway, which runs from Kensington to Brighton Beach, as a priority corridor, to be considered for redesigns, new signage, and changed signal timing. With 8 pedestrian deaths and 64 pedestrians seriously injured from 2009-2013, the road ranked as the fourth most dangerous for people on foot in Brooklyn. [ more › ]...
