Anna Chlumsky's NYC Faves
Fort Greene gal Anna Chlumsky, who is starring in the off-Broadway show “Love, Loss and What I Wore,” shared with us some of her NYC Faves.
Brooklyn Public House (247 DeKalb Ave., Fort Greene, 347-227-8976): “Awesome pub on DeKalb with a surprisingly delicious Bloody Mary brunch.”
Decibel (240 E. Ninth St., 212-979-2733): “Make believe you’re in Tokyo, chow down on shrimp chips and drink yourself into a sake-infused stupor.”
Le Grainne Cafe (183 Ninth Ave., 646-486-3000): “Lovely place to just while away the hours. If you find yourself without good conversation, there are literary journals on the walls.”Lucien (14 First Ave., 212-260-6481): “I feel like myself when I sit down here. Close quarters, spot-on food and generous drink.”
One Girl Cookies (68 Dean St., Cobble Hill, 212-675-4996): “The daintiest, most crave-able little treats. You can taste the love.”Rehoboth Spa Lounge (55 W. 14th St., 212-462-4957): “My favorite place for an impromptu chair massage. These guys just melt the tension away.” Sapporo (152 W. 49th St., 212-869-8972): “The closest thing to a Japanese truck-stop ramen house I have found in New York. Cheap, steamy and
satisfying. The real deal.”
Shobha (various Manhattan locations) “They’ve been
taming my Slavic brow for years. They’ve become like family and always have a kicking soundtrack. Yay for thread.
Spicy & Tasty (39-07 Prince St., Flushing, 718-359-1601): “I swear the Sichuan peppercorn has addictive properties, and this is the best place, hands down, to get your fix.”Sweet Melissa (various Brooklyn locations): “Our wedding cupcakes were made here. Our friends and family still talk about those cakes. Charming, special and quality in everything they do.”
