Ah, brunch. That age-old institution of midday eating that leads to an afternoon and evening of napping, and then more eating. If you love this fictional, all-day meal as much as I do, then get excited, because Bed-stuy is getting another brunch crawl, courtesy of the Bridge Street Development Corporation as part of the Bed-Stuy Alive! festival. The crawl will move along Lewis Avenue, stopping off at some of the greasiest, rib-sticking ma n’ pop shops this side of the bridge. Start stretching your stomachs for Sunday, October 11.
From 12pm-5pm, your $5 “Feast BedStuy” passport gets you access to the neighborhood’s hottest foodie destinations along Lewis Avenue. You can either join the group crawl or visit participating restaurants in your own order, but either way you’ve got to register online.
Here’s a rundown of what you can expect: wine and cheese from Therapy Wine Bar (364 Lewis Avenue), chicken and waffles at Brooklyn Beso (370 Lewis Avenue), all-day breakfast specials at Ma N’ Pop (349 Lewis Avenue), taco combinations under $5 from Oaxaca (478 Halsey Street), a quarter-chicken meal for $6 at The Jerk Shop (Lewis & Macdonough), and $15 chicken wings & punch at Peaches (393 Lewis Avenue).
Yum. It might look like it adds up, but if you split those meals with two friends, everyone can eat like a king and get pretty daytime loaded for about $30 apiece. That way, you also save money for the other things that count in life—hey, like our wine books!
