we ate well in new york. this is the dumbo general store, a laid back cafe with an amazing classico sandwich: grilled panini with melted mozzarella and salami. our first morning in brooklyn, we went out to breakfast to celebrate my friend's birthday at le gamin, a french bistro in prospect heights. i had a quiche loraine with the flakiest buttery crust, a bowl of cafe au lait and a salad. others had a croque monsieur, an asparagus omlette and a continental breakfast with croissants, jam, bread and butter.
one night we went to an outdoor concert, part of the celebrate brooklyn series in prospect park. we brought cheese and baguettes and other yummy treats to eat together. you can see us crowded on our little blanket eating well.
brooklyn was for visiting friends; we were so lucky to have people to stay with.
