In an interview this week on the keenly interesting site Epicurean Musician, Guster member and Cobble Hillbilly Ryan Miller enthusiastically endorses the culinary plethora we are so blessed to have in the nabe:
When we moved to Brooklyn, that instigated a lot of it. We were in the Lower East Side for a couple of years, but now we have a bigger kitchen and spend more time at home. I got way into cooking. I always talk about, especially in our neighborhood, how ridiculous it is. We have Sahadi’s , Trader Joe’s, those two insanely amazing butchers, a cheese shop [Stinky Bklyn], and we’re a five minute drive from Fairway. Union Market, they have everything in a pinch, too.
It’s so great – I can pick any food: Moroccan, Greek, etc. and I’m able to find any spices, capers, anything I need. Fairway is probably the single greatest thing about this neighborhood. They have everything, its on the water, you can get those lobster rolls. I’m a real New Yorker in how I cook, I don’t buy groceries for the week, I sort of buy things for dinner at 4pm. Being around here encourages cooking, you can run out and know you can find anything.
Thanks to Josh at Epicurean Musician for sharing the excellent interview!
