Still thinking about this brunch I had a few weeks back with friends at the cutest little nook called Vinegar Hill House in (you guessed it!) Vinegar Hill, a charming little neighborhood right next door to DUMBO in Brooklyn. With its cobblestone streets and preserved Federal-style brownstone buildings, it reminds me of my first apartment in Philadelphia when I first moved to the east coast. Remnants of an early 19th century America frozen in time. I always get so nostalgic feeling when I set foot on a cobblestone street surrounded by faded brick and shady trees. It's amazing to still see neighborhoods like this preserved amongst the newness of the city!
My friend and I Citi-biked from Bed Stuy to meet our other friend in DUMBO and from there we made our way by foot to the hidden neighborhood that is Vinegar Hill. I wondered the entire time why I never knew this little area existed!! The wait at the restaurant was a little bit long, but I sneaked peeks at what everyone was devouring, and I didn't mind at all! It all look very much worth the wait.
