GO: Fort Reno BBQ (Brooklyn, NY)

23 Jun

A full rack of ribs with a side of cole slaw.

Love BBQ?  Love grass-fed organic meats?  Then Fort Reno BBQ in Park Slope is a paleo foodies’ dream come true for you.

About the meats, as described on the Fort Reno website:

“In the kitchen, we smoke and braise meats to succulent perfection. About half the menu will change seasonally with the core of the menu being beef brisket, whole-hog pulled pork and pork ribs. Specials like duck, game and odd bits will rotate through the menu, based on availability. The meat served is organic, grass-fed, and sourced from Heritage Foods and Pat LaFrieda.”

We’re digging: take-away salads from Tysta Mari

8 Nov

Everyday for the past week, David and I have eaten salads for lunch from Tysta Mari in the Östermalms Saluhall.  Tysta Mari has a take-away only, build-your-own salad bar with great ingredients.  You pick your choice of lettuce (romaine or mixed), carbs (we pass on this, obvi), protein (ranging from chicken, chunks of smoked salmon, cooked salmon, crayfish, etc.), 3 vegetables (a wide variety), and a dressing.  Today I had a salad of mix leaves, lemon-pepper salmon, marinated mushrooms, artichokes and avocado.  I took some balsamic dressing on the side, but didn’t end up using it because the salad had so much flavor.  We love the salads from Tysta Mari.  Today one of our colleagues asked us how long we will continue to eat salads from there before we get sick of them — and for the moment, we can’t see it happening, as there are so many different combinations to try, and the salads are big and filling.  If you are looking for a fabulous build-your-own salad in Stockholm, I highly recommend Tysta Mari.
