When in Red Hook, Brooklyn…


We find ourselves in Red Hook, Brooklyn for two reasons:  IKEA or the Nadia Tarr sample sale (my favorite designer).  Our recent visit was the latter.  There is also amazing key lime pie sold only in Red Hook:  Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pie.  It’s world famous and one of Al Roker’s picks.  Lucky me, they serve it at another favorite spot, The Red Hook Lobster Pound.  After a delicious lunch of lobster rolls and sweet potato fries, it was time for a light & refreshing sweet.  The perfect mini size, it’s tangy and delicious.   If you go to the actual location of Steve’s, they also serve what’s called “The Swingle,” which is a mini key lime pie on a stick dipped in chocolate.  WAHOO!  I say venture out for a lovely afternoon in Red Hook.  Whether you’re grabbing furniture for your NYC apt or shopping for some fierce clothes, there’s always a need for a food break.
