Vinegar Hill House (Dumbo, Brooklyn)

The Vinegar Hill House, is a gem buried in the secret cobble stone streets of Vinegar Hill near Dumbo, Brooklyn.

It is a place you could spend an entire Sunday afternoon sipping on a french press coffee or a "Swan Song" cocktail (applejack, brandy, orange & grenadine), nibbling on toast with orange marmalade and butter, and enjoying their sunny patio or cozy dining room.

Something about the old country cottage's, mismatched antique silverware, screen doors, folk art pottery and big farm house tables make me crave simple, beautiful, unpretentious food.

Luckily there is nothing short of local, seasonal, perfect brunching to be had here.   Feast upon the Motosierra aka  "The Chainsaw"  (a light sourdough pancake filled with Chorizo and jalapeno topped with a pineapple mango salsa), or the Ful Medames (poached egg, cucumber, olives and lemon), or possibly The Angela's Sourdough Pancakes (with fresh ricotta and pecan bourbon sauce).

Yes it could be all these things that make me want to go back to Vinegar hill, the maple bacon, the yummy cocktails, the roasted octopus on the dinner menu.....or it could be just the adventure of getting there.
