Marlow & Sons is where your local Brooklyn hipsters come to congregate in the morning. Moustaches, impossible haircuts, ironic t-shirts, liberal use of French swears in front of toddlers, $300 handcrafted leather bags, and a very cool barista who can make you anything – it’s got everything! But hey, if your first instinct is to dismiss it as a pretentious joint in an overwhelmingly gentrified neighbourhood, defer judgement till you’ve actually tasted the food. The menu is simple comfort food, but done very well and made with locally sourced ingredients. Martha Stewart even took a trip down there to get the recipe for their brick chicken, and that’s something, right? It’s also Dave 1′s (of Chromeo) restaurant of choice. Who wouldn’t trust the taste of a sexy French professor who once wrote a dissertation titled Theorizing the Pleasure of Reading in Eighteenth Century France?
We got the rhubarb scones, biscuit with egg and bacon, and poached eggs with polenta, shaved asparagus, and fiddleheads. We thought about prolonging our stay to get the lunch menu or coming back for dinner for the oysters, but it will have to be for the next time we’re back in New York.

The quaintest little place. While I wasn’t entirely impressed by the coffee or the pastries, it was definitely an ‘experience’. We had the option of either sitting at their backyard patio or the inside, we chose an inside ‘booth’ with retro wallpapers. It felt as if we were on an old train.

Late lunch done well at Pies’n'Thighs. We had the Chicken & Waffles, Biscuit, Chicken & Grits, a doughnut and a deep fried apple pie. We couldn’t finish all our food and ended up packing two pieces of chicken and a waffle to go….and ended up having it for dinner with a baguette in our hostel. Vive la belle vie?
