Four Brooklyn Food Blogs You Need to Follow
Hub is only steps from world-renowned restaurants. With blogging & Instagram changing the way we look at and find new restaurants and trends – we decided to follow (only online! Totally not creepy…) the best foodies in town. Diving into much more than just avocado toast, these accounts will show you all you need to know from the best donuts in Bayridge to what to eat at Dekalb Market Hall, and everything in between.
Brooklyn Based (@brooklynbased) is an awesome website/Instagram for all things food & culture in Brooklyn. Pick a cuisine type, like Caribbean (you might need to wait a few more months before you can dress like you’re on a Caribbean island, though) and let Brooklyn Based guide you on a tour of the best Caribbean restaurants nearby. Brooklyn Based will keep you up to date with all the cool new food events going in your neighborhood- like the Meatball Takedown or the Vodka & Pickle Festival (yes, you did read that correctly). Also, keep on an eye out for their top-notch recipes because it is okay to cook in your amazing Hub kitchen every once in a while.
The Brooklyn Foodie (@thebrooklynfoodie) account will have you automatically drooling over all the food on their feed. The Brooklyn Foodie lives and breathes Brooklyn food all day. Scrolling through you’ll see mouth-watering pictures joined with details on the food, the chef & where to get it! You’ll want to visit every place you see on The Brooklyn Foodie. Recent posts like the avocado tartine at French Louie or Lumpia Shack Pork Belly are to die for.
One Hungry Jew (@onehungryjew) will point your mouth to all the right spots in Brooklyn. Rayna, aka One Hungry Jew, uses her love for food and travel to inspire her blog & Instagram. One Hungry Jew is a food, travel, and lifestyle blog with awesome neighborhood checklists highlighting Brooklyn. She has comprehensive lists for Greenpoint, Williamsburg, and Park Slope- giving you plenty of options from casual dining, to brunch, to gourmet dinner spots.
Edible Brooklyn (@ediblebrooklyn) is a great blog highlighting how (and where) the borough eats. Their Instagram truly makes the food look too good to eat, but that won’t stop us for long. With posts on everything from the new combined brewery/fermentary/juicery (Island to Island) to finding the best dumplings in Sunset Park or a donut that is worth trekking to Bay Ridge for. They look for that local trend that is making a difference in how the community eats.
With Brooklyn offering such a variety of food options, following these accounts can help you find hidden foodie gems all around Brooklyn. Hub residents who are feeling inspired by all the yummy bites on Instagram can get into the kitchen at the “Breakfast for Dinner” Cooking Demo on April 18th. Residents will learn how to make quiche, Dutch pancakes, avocado toast, and apple cider mimosas. The demo will be led by chef Edouard Massih (@edouardmassih) and will inspire your go-to meal. Make sure to tag us in your Instagram Posts from the night- and share the leftovers!
