What a busy weekend! Time to recap it all… Saturday, Jason and I ran some errands, did laundry, etc, but took a break to have lunch at Marlow & Sons in Brooklyn. I’ve been wanting to go here for a while, after hearing that they’re all about using locally grown ingredients. The restaurant has a casual vintage atmosphere (I love vintage), wooden tables, mismatched wooden stools and bench seating, chalkboard menus and a bakery in the front.
Jason and I started with glasses of wine. I had a glass of LINI Lambrusco, from Emilia Romagna. This was a chilled red wine, which I was intrigued by. It was light-medium bodied, a little dry and opened up a bit as it got to room temp – perfect for a summer afternoon. Jason and I split the market salad and then he had a bacon, egg and cheese on a homemade buttermilk biscuit, while I had the Cubano, a pressed ham and cheese sandwich with stone ground mustard – delicious. My sandwich came with a dijon-y potato salad that Jason and I loved!
Saturday night, we met our friends Anna and Lou at Pacifico, a fun Mexican restaurant in the Cobble Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn. Pacifico has a backyard/beachy atmosphere, music playing and an outdoor patio. It was too hot for the patio, so we stayed inside.
We ordered a pitcher of margaritas and had a light dinner of quesadillas and shrimp and avocado enchiladas. Everything was delicious and they served up really generous portions. I hope we get to go back here before we move!
