carroll gardens all-star chow finds

bigjeff | | Mar 18, 2007 02:05 PM

so I'm dogsitting in carroll gardens (but interested in the surrounding, walkable area) for a week, and after combing the boards, I've already had over the past few days:

1. lard bread from mazolla's - great
2. pork sandwich from esposito's - really moist flavorful pork loin
3. rice balls and prosciutto balls from joe's superette - not sure which was which, but I liked the ricey yellow one better than the tomato-y one
4. nino's slice - meh
5. soul spot - fried chicken kinda bland, some sides good tho
6. custard pastry from oriental pastry - very good, not overpoweringly sweet
7. spinach pie from sahadi's - purty good, but too hectic there
8. fennel twist things from Caputo's - needed an extra 5 minutes in the oven, but good

on my to do list:
1. Chicory (any suggestions?)
2. went to Ferdinando's but it was closed on Sunday! (anyone know their hours?)
3. Fragole
4. Haven't hit Lucali's yet, but I will

anyway, if anyone can add to the above list, I've got a week left. any and all suggestions are welcome, thanks! Incidentally, I've been shopping at the two Met supermarkets in the area for kitchen basics, so any other grocers or speciality suggestions would be great too.
