The Daily Shortlist May 6
A benefit for the American Cancer Society, the Pink and Black Tie Gala will be a star studded event featuring Stacy London of TLC’s ‘What Not to Wear’ hosting with performances and appearances by some of Brooklyn’s biggest stars. While the Brooklyn Navy Yard area is a bit desolate, the nearby Clinton Hill area is not. Creating a seasonal menu filled with fresh and locally grown ingredients along with wines from small interesting local wineries, ICI creates innovative dishes like Wild Striped Bass with shitake mushrooms, fennel butter, and fennel slaw ($25). An eclectic bar in Ft. Greene that has absolutely nothing to do with The Simpsons, Moe’s offers a decent beer selection, a neighborhood vibe, and big windows to people watch. For coffee and a place to just sit and relax, Tillie’s serves a great cup of joe, while consistently having performances, and serving excellent baked goods and vegan food.
