The Daily Shortlist October 11
Mark Ronson has been a world famous DJ, producer, and now a musician leading his band Mark Ronson & the Business Intl. On his album Record Collection he works with some big names names Q-Tip, Ghostface Killah, D’Angelo, Spank Rock, Simon Le Bon, and more. Before that, a great restaurant on the same block is SEA. Asian inspired from the décor to the food, this huge and gorgeous space serves up a mostly Thai menu from massaman curries to house specialties like Red SEA Duck (Half duck in red vinaigrette-tomato gravy sauce served with stir-fried mixed veggies), SEA is inexpensive and visually impressive for Brooklyn. With an increasing amount of new bars on the block, Zablozki’s is a standout that’s cozy, mostly mahogany, and has great drinks specials. A great stop off if you’re early is Academy Records. One of the biggest vinyl shops in NYC, if you are a vinyl fan, you will be blown away.
