L’imprimerie
[email protected]
For the mornings when only a French baguette will do, there’s Bushwick staple L’imprimerie. The bakery is keeping up with bread and pastry orders, plus pantry items like sauerkraut, dried beans, coffee, granola, yogurt, and wine. L’imprimerie is giving free pizza assembly kits to essential workers (which means anyone keeping the city running—drivers, medics, restaurant workers, etc.), and you can buy them as well. And all those looking to master the art of sourdough should make a beeline for the bakery’s starter kits.
The Four Horsemen
295 Grand St., Williamsburg
We’re crazy for the Four Horsemen at the best of times, and now our craving for the niche biodynamic wines (available) and lemony bottarga pasta (sadly not) is in full overdrive. The restaurant is delivering a robust selection of natural wines and cocktails hand-batched by head bartender Orlando Franklin McCray. You’ll have to buy a snack to take advantage of cocktails or beer delivery, per the law; we strongly recommend the Spanish ham chips. Place your order through nextdoorspacebk.com.
The Brooklyn Kitchen
100 Frost St., Williamsburg
Cooking nightly dinner at home is a fairly radical concept to many New Yorkers, but blessedly the Brooklyn Kitchen (with two locations, Williamsburg and Sunset Park) has made realistic home cooking its mission. The Williamsburg property is a renovated warehouse with a stunning loft kitchen and ample space for ambitious gourmands to command their own stations. Classes are themed and truly, there is something for everyone whether you want to master the art of French cooking (pick the Julia Child class), acquire the basics in knife skills 101, learn to butcher your own meat or just rustle up some quick pickles to perk up your work lunches al desko. Aside from being seriously practical, cooking classes are a fun change-up from the normal restaurant-dinner-and-a-drink date or post-work routine.
Sogi’s Honey Bakeshop
[email protected]
Brooklyn-based Sogoal Zolghadri turned her love of watercolor and baking into a full-time gig a couple of years ago quietly launching Sogi's Honey Bakeshop on social media and starting a Kickstarter to help her get the business off the ground. (Check out her hilarious Instagram here.) Her exacting hand takes food coloring and a paintbrush and applies it much like watercolor onto delicately glazed sugar cookies. The result? Cheeky phrases, like "Sorry for things I said when Mercury was in retrograde," edible emojis, and ones painted to look like avocado toast that are almost too pretty too eat.
Bindle & Keep
Clinton Hill
This Brooklyn-based suiting shop is the subject of a Lena Dunham-produced HBO documentary coming out this fall (we’re eagerly counting down the days). The concept is to create bespoke suiting for all genders. Not only are their suits tailored with the finest craftsmanship, they’re also filling an enormous gap in the wedding market by creating a bespoke, fitted suiting option for women and non-gender-conforming people, who—for myriad reasons—are not interested in a traditional wedding dress.
