Brooklyn – Greenpoint
124 Meserole Ave. (bet. Leonard and Ekford Sts.)
Brooklyn, NY 11222
Taking the concept of “eat local” to its logical conclusion, Eat Greenpoint is a small-scale, bare-bones café that adheres to an admirable philosophy of simply prepared, high-quality food. The décor fits the bill: raw wood, Mason jars and gorgeous ceramics (made by the owners) set the scene, while the kitchen puts out straightforward sandwiches, house-baked goods and many vegetarian options. Programs such as a local CSA and cooking classes add to the groovy community spirit.
