A Peek Inside Trader Joe's
The Brooklyn Paper has posted a video tour of the new TJ's on Court and Atlantic — documenting proof of the the store's 18 cash registers. Plus, the store's captain, Greg Glei, and BP editor-in-chief Gersh Kuntzman discuss their favorite Trader Joe's products, such as white cheddar popcorn, mandarin orange chicken (a $5 meal in a freezer bag — just add rice and broccoli), cheese, chocolate, and coffee from around the world, and frozen blackened salmon. Any other product recommendations for those of us who are new to TJ's?
New Brunch Options in Cobble Hill & Carroll Gardens
A Brooklyn Life says the weekend brunch menu at Smith Street's new bourbon and barbecue joint, Char No. 4, is "chockfull of comfort foods — bacon cheddar grits, shrimp and grits, a BLT made from fried pork bely, a chopped pork sandwich." Plus, Abilene, the bar on Court and 3rd Place is gearing up to add a brunch menu — "And it's not an extension of their current chicken fingers and burger menu. Nope, this brunch will be courtesy of the folks behind the southern-leaning Jimmy's Diner in Williamsburg/Greenpoint... and [will] hopefully include Jimmy's 'famous' free donuts."
