Best Soup in Brooklyn?
Chowhound redgirl highly recommends the Italian wedding soup from Naidre's in Park Slope (384 Seventh Avenue, between 11th and 12th Streets). Anyone else have a nomination for the best bowl of soup in the borough?
Brooklyn's Beer Renaissance
The New York Times reports on Brooklyn's wave of successful breweries: "Sixpoint’s growth in the borough has been the most rapid. Its sales have doubled every year since it started in 2004 with a dozen customers. (It even contracts out some brewing to Greenpoint.) Some 300 bars and restaurants in New York now pour beers from the Sixpoint lineup: Sweet Action, Brownstone Ale, Righteous Rye."

Three Brooklyn bars — Floyd (131 Atlantic Avenue), Tea Lounge (837 Union Street), and Abilene (442 Court Street) — made the list.
