Just in time for the holidays, our spotlight moves to NYC as Brooklyn-devotee and co-founder of personal style blog, Broadist, Caroline Shadood gives us a peek into her favorites in the burgeoning Brooklyn food scene…
Nosh: What are your three favorite restaurants at the moment?
Nosh: What is your favorite restaurant to go to before going out? Favorite bar?
Nosh: What is your all-time favorite dessert?
Cannolis. Really, really good ones.
Nosh: What is something that you love to do that is specific to the neighborhood you live in?
Eat tacos while burning bodega prayer candles and gardening on my fire escape.
Nosh: Please tell us about a memorable dining experience you had while on vacation.
The Black Bear Diner in Olympia, WA is a sight to behold (bear-themed greasy diner) and a burger to be imbibed (pretty sure it was the size of my head).
Nosh: What dish reminds you of your childhood?
Nosh: Could you please share a few tips for throwing an unforgettable dinner party.
Never half-ass the veggies and never half-ass the music. Amazing salad + comfort food is my winning combo. Also, be sure to have back-up beverages (of all kinds) and ice.

Midnight City by M83
