The Daily Shortlist January 6
As part of The Bridge Project, a three-year project at BAM that sees top American and British actors perform together in plays, The Cherry Orchard, Chekhov’s final play will see Sam Mendes direct U.S. actors Richard Easton, Josh Hamilton, and Ethan Hawke and UK actors Simon Russell Beale, Sinéad Cusack, and Rebecca Hall. The sister restaurant of it’s Williamburg location, Bonita makes really delicious Mexican food like the chicken burrito. The rub they use on the meat makes it taste out of this world. The Hideout, a new bar on Dekalb St., might have a name suggesting it’s desire for secrecy, but most who know about it love its unconventional style. Though tiny, it’s known for its cocktails, falling on the expensive side for Brooklyn ($12-14) but are well worth the price. Tillie’s is a coffee shop where you can sit and relax, get a great cup of joe, eat baked goods with vegan options, and people watch while waiting for the show.
