Umami Mart Barware

As a welcome gesture, my dear newly-wed friends Vanessa and Payman decided to throw me a "Welcome to Brooklyn" Party. Let me tell you- these 2 really know how to entertain! (And they got a chance to try out all those wedding gifts). They had quite a spread prepared- all Brooklyn inspired fare. Our friend went out around 9pm to pick up a couple pies at Di Fara's, and they were so busy that the poor thing didn't return until 3 hours later....but she had with her the MOST amazing pizza. This stuff put Grimaldi's to shame!

Payman had a full service bar going. Drink specials were posted on the board and my favorite was the "Brooklyn Cocktail" - a mix of Old Forrester, Dry Vermouth, Maraschino and Angostura.

But that was just the beginning....after several Nathan's hotdogs, a Brooklyn Lager or 2, and lots of dipping in the chocolate fountain, I was officially sworn in as a Brooklyn-ite. Thanks, Vanessa & Payman! I look forward to more eating and drinking together in my new borough.



  • Welcome to Brooklyn Erin! I love the black and white pic you took of me…I did not even know that pic was taken. It was great meeting you! Enjoy Brooklyn :)
