Recommendations for Brooklyn NY?

April 18, 2013 - 10:59am -- run4bread

I am in Brooklyn for a week (Park Slope and the opposite side the P Park). What are the must try places for bread, bagels and pizza? Levain based preferred.

It was great to come downstairs and find miche from Bread Alone on the counter!

Looks like Amy's and Sullivan Street are only in Manhattan.

Second question: My sisters want to go to Zabars, my grandmother's deli. I see rcommendations for Katz's. How are they similar, different?

Brooklyn Bread

July 13, 2010 - 9:26am -- mawil1013



I'm new here, posting for first time.


There is a bread available in Brooklyn and on the lable is I beleive has 'Kings Road' or something like that. It is like a french bread, I think, long narrow, the crust is dark brown, crusty and tough, the inside is light and airy.


Anyone got a recipe for a bread like this? I'll be working the dough in a bread maker but cooking in oven at 550F on a pizza stone unless otherwise directed.

jewish corn bread

January 6, 2009 - 5:49pm -- oleteeth

I grew up in Brooklyn, NY and remember corn bread shaped like rye bread. Except , if I remember correctly it was slightly yellow but I don't remember it being a sour>

Also I am looking for a recipe to make rye bread as used in delis.

Any suggestions? I would really appreciate it since I've being searching for eons.
