Rest Day Posted on Friday, February 19, 2010 CrossFit South Brooklyn Happy Birthday, Shaun M! CFSBK is proud to be hosting our friend, Robb Wolf on April 11th for a Nutrition Seminar. Register today! If you're not already, become a fan of CrossFit South Brooklyn on Facebook! What is your favorite local restaurant?
To go out to dinner, Convivium Osteria. Good organic food, great menu, good date spot.
For take out, Coco Roco peruvian chicken. It’s addicting.
Happy Birthday Shaun!
PALO, Palo, Palo Santo.. la la la.
Ghenet for take out – make more paleo friendly by skipping the bread.
Favorite local, as in the Slope: Rose Water. I would alsosay franny’s, except their service is not so great and they make you cut your own pizza with a steak knife. But that clam pizza…
Favorite local, as in NYC: Perilla.
Man, this ‘hood has a ridiculous abundance of good restaurants.
Some faves:al di la (great Italian)RosewaterConvivium OsteriaJames (in Prospect Heights, great brunch & burger)The Vanderbilt (small plates, YUMMY)Bogota (*not* paleo; great cheap mojitos and caipirinhas)Geido Sushi on FlatbushMelt on Bergen
Chris A. says
Saul on Smith St.Luigi’s Pizza on 5th ave btwn 20th & 21st (i think).
I made up the dips today. 5×5 bar dips. This is the first time I have made all 5 in all 5 sets.
Then 2 ascents of the rope all the way to the red tape. Yay! That was as fun as I’d imagined.
Now, seeing how Laurel modified yesterday’s metcon, I’m regretful….sigh….
i wish i liked Palo Santo – never been super excited by the menu, the food or the service.
in the slope:Bogota (monday night happy hour prices all night!)Press195 (i can’t WAIT to have the #2 as a treat post paleo)RosewaterMelt (Charlotte – almost forgot about Melt! its been awhile since i’ve gone, so yummy!)Toby’s Public House – yummmy pizza!Korzo – mmmmm, deep fried burger…
in prospect heights:Cheryl’s – delicious southern/soul food but not heavy at all

Just a shout of for some of the students where I work who could use some attention. They’ve put together a niche blog for “New Yorkers interested in urban farming and gardening, local food, organic food, rooftop gardens, live-bird markets, farmer’s markets, co-ops, beekeeping, and urban foraging.”
Check it out if you’re so inclined — maybe you even have a story idea for them…
I also like any place that serves *tea* 🙂
The Farm on Adderley. Good service, delicious food, relaxed neighborhood vibe.
Flatbush Farm, DEB? Evan and I have always liked to go to Bar(n), which is the accompanying, more low-key bar. Very pleasant.
I love Melt too.Brunch at Miriam.Been meaning to get to Convivium for the Steak.Bonnie’s Grill Burger.
More in prospect heightsTaqueria de los Muertos (Run by my old favorite Park slope Brunch place Beso)andChavellas for some good Mexican
I like Flatbush Farm too! But The Farm on Adderley is on Cortelyou in either Kensington or Dimas Park I’m not sure which neighborhood is which.
Snip, the way you put asterisks around the word tea makes me thing its some sort of beatnik euphemism. 🙂
Joe, I had the exact same thought. I’m glad I’m not the only one.
Ooh, I really *don’t* like Flatbush Farm. I think they are just wayy too impressed with themselves, with their farm-to-table ladidah. Overpriced, too. James up the street on the Heights side of Flatbush is way more mellow and just as yummy.
Bonnie’s is great. And I do looooove the shakes at Uncle Louie G’s. Also, Blue Sky has the best muffins in the city! For reals, not just cuz it’s owned by Nick’s cuz.
Woohoo. I was stuck figuring I was old and had no idea what *tea* was. Trying to figure out if it was drug or sex related.
Oh boy. I was trying to make a not-so-subtle reminder to management to bring in that electric kettle, and inadvertently made a pot reference.
But this whole misunderstanding reminds me of a funny (slightly inappropriate) story. A few years ago, my grandmother had surgery on her eye. Her doctor recommended placing a warm tea bag on the area to soothe it. At a family gathering, as we were clearing the table after dinner, my dotty aunt announced to the entire room that we needed to put the kettle on, so we could, “teabag grandma.”
Happy Friday, everyone.
Tea bagging G-Ma”s…he he heh
Picking one is really hard.
Convivium Osteria for the food, atmosphere,and service.
Blue Ribbon for the service
Korzo for the burgers and the Beer Jesus
Bogota for the too fracking yummy brunch
Palo Santo for the food, owner, and memories
David Osorio says
I really like Palo Santo for the food, atmosphere, service, management and memories.
Prime Meats is a great spot too. The menu is sort of limited but the steak and eggs breakfast as well as the burger leave little to be desired.
I know it’s not really “local” but the Green Table in Chelsea Market is pretty amazing. If I lived closer to it I’d probably eat there every day.
should i know who the management at palo santo is? have i now had a foot-in-mouth moment?
Matt U. says
Franny’s, al di la, Song, James, and Press 195 are my faves. Bogota’s great too. I’m surprised I haven’t seen any votes for Applewood, which takes pride in serving food from local farms (small-ish portions, though).
Don’t worry about it, Snip. I like places that serve *tea*. And places that have *coke* instead of Pepsi. And places where I can smoke crack in the bathroom.
Wait. Scratch that last one.
Bethany Benzur says
No. 7, Umi Nom and Prime Meats are my current faves. Oh and Eton for (post challenge) dumplings!
Don’t worry Steph. We just like the owner (actually their whole staff), who is the chef – if you eat there for dinner he is often cooking and comes around to say hi.
Samir Chopra says
A student of mine used to wait tables at Palo Santo. When I told her I went to CFSBK just around the corner, she said “Oh, those people from Crossfit, they always show up on the weekends for brunch. All they do is drink several pitchers of water, and eat lots of steak.”
One spot left for the Mobility & Recovery Intensive that starts tommorow… Get in on it!
Kira and I just went to Prime Meats last night and it was awesome. Steak with clarified garlic butter anyone?
We really like Blue Ribbon Sushi. It’s a little more pricey than most other sushi joints, but you can tell the quality of the goods is better. Plus the staff is so nice – we’ve been going so much that they give us free stuff now.
Other top faves:Franny’sThe Vanderbiltal di la (Tip: it’s way easier to get in at lunch)
Prime Meats has become a favorite during the paleo challenge. Buttermilk Channel and Frankie’s 457 I also like very much. And Saul’s.
Btw, how much is Robb Wolf’s seminar?
Bjorn- click the link….
Made up dips today.5×5 bar dips with the white band.
A little disappointed that I couldn’t get 6 reps like last week but I guess I’m just really fatigued from yesterday’s wod. Also tried the rope climb but didn’t get to far also due to fatigue. I did reopen my scab from my last rope climb though. Good times.
Restaurants I love: palo santo, bogota, convivium, prime meats, calexico (red hook/Carroll gardens), nuevo Mexico for tacos and margaritas, korzo! I’m hungry now.
28:35 on the makeup birthday wod. 30# dumbbell.
Rows were (approximately) 1:47, 1:52, 1:55, 1:57, 1:55
left arm thrusters were really hard. couldn’t cycle them well. weird because that’s not the shoulder that would normally give me trouble.
pull-ups were fine. sets got as low as three, just sort of strung things together as able.
Hit 17 unbroken double unders afterwards before snagging the rope on a GHD. Not quite a PR, but probably close to it.
To follow up on Bjorn’s entirely reasonable question, is that the final/total price? The link describes is as a “reservation price”. Definitely interested, just want to know what I’m in for.
Aliseo! On Vanderbilt. It’s like being in the Marche.Paolo Santo – I must be missing something. I have been there 4 times and had a terrible experience every time.Al di La – in the top 5 Italian restaruants in all of NYC!!!Franny’s! – Snip, let’s go together and you will gain a fetish.Moim – Korean place with the goods!The Good Fork in Red Hook.Saul – great wine list. ask for Sean, he is a fellow Cert. Sommelier.Grand Canyon on 7th for burgersCafe Steinhof – Chicken Paprika baby!and, of courseour home at Sheep Station!!!
I clicked the link and then was asked for address, phone number, email, social security number and first born child. Just to find out how much the thing costs?
David Mak says
Buttermilk Channel, Ki Sushi on Smith, Tanoreen in Bayridge (crazy good Lebanese), the red curry at Joya on Court. Food is great.
Bjorn, that’s a good deal, you don’t want your first born anyway.
Sheesh, Joe. $195 is the price for the Robb Wolf seminars.
D Mak – Ha!
