Today is July 1st and it's 100 degrees (degrees). Most of us are going to want to have a beach day everyday ... or at least every weekend. But the reality is, many of us want to chillax in the neighborhood - with some great vibes!
Here are some of our favorite recommendations by our studio:
Meet Up For A Cup Of Coffee And A Quick Bite:
We adore our rustic neighbor Maman. With locations across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Toronto, Maman has great coffee and dishes with locally sourced ingredients that highlights a twist on classic french techniques. Come here a break to journal to meet with a friend in an amazing setting.
Dinner Date After 6 PM:
Di An Di is a brand new Vietnamese-American restaurant right across the street from our studio. This upbeat restaurant has a fresh culinary concept with a critical design focus. The food is absolutely amazing but the atmosphere of high-ceilings with a glassed-in kitchen, magnificent natural light and beautiful plant decor is going to blow your mind. The vibes are so attractive you're going to make this one of your favorite spots in the neighborhood.
The Best Desserts:
Just a few doors down from our studio, Ovenly - an award winning bakery that makes mouth watering peanut butter cookies, salted caramel brownies and pistachio agave cookies. Everything is made fresh daily so definitely believe us when we say they have the best treats in town.
In Need Of Apothecary and Wellness:
Antidote is hands down the best wellness shop in Brooklyn. It's a very intimate and intentional space with therapeutic tea, vegetarian/vegan lunch jars and face and body products. There's herbs, their aromas, and the synchronicity of these blends are known to have healing power. And the best thing is that the owner Elizabeth makes sure that everything is as organic and wild crafted as possible.
There's so much to experience in Greenpoint and we absolutely love our oasis of community. Continue to shop local and support independent brands! : )
