this weekend was a very brooklyn-y and christmas-y weekend (as if those are words). we started it early on thursday by going out and getting my favorite pizza in nyc at motorino (their crust will change your life). during sandy they stayed open by filling the restaurant with candles and serving pizza from their wood-burning oven, so it was nice to go and support them back. that theme continued into saturday morning when we went to red hook after a morning run across the brooklyn bridge. my favorite restaurant in the neighborhood, fort defiance, was back open, truly a feat after having lost their entire kitchen. their breakfast continues to knock my socks off, and being low on supplies they served me sugar for my coffee in a shot glass. how can you just not love it there? after all that deliciousness we set out to accomplish our one goal for the weekend - getting brian his first nyc christmas tree. complete with the one ornament he owns. he's quite proud of his tree and his apartment smells like perfection (of course). all we have to do is get me my tree from my local deli, in true new york style. sunday finished out the weekend with a homemade frittata, which i'll post here sometime this week.
it was another wonderful and delicious weekend, made better by the fact that christmas season is in full swing here in nyc - i couldn't be happier.
