Guide David's tour of South Brooklyn was an amazing way to spend an afternoon learning and tasting the rich cultural history of the area. I felt like we were getting real insider knowledge about the best and most authentic restaurants, cafes, and markets. At every stop he shared wonderful anecdotes about the shops founders, how certain recipes came to be, and how food has changed and been changed by development. Each dish we tried was a perfect sampling of the diversity of flavors in the neighborhood and so delicious. I will be stopping back at each of the restaurants for more soon!
