Smorgasberg, Brooklyn

Saturday was beautifully warm, so we headed to Brooklyn

where all the young people are as well as lots of food.

At Smorgasberg you can eat yourself silly in the open air. We had pizza and porchetta sandwiches.

The vendors were cheerful; the mini cheesecakes delicious.

These were so small that they couldn't possibly be fattening.

All sorts of other baked goods

then a teeny tiny exquisite  Moroccan pastilla from Nadia's Kitchen where I got to use my  few words of Arabic. 

Candy samples too....

and fish and Mexican food.

So after all that, nice to sit in the sun

and look at the river

and chat

and wait for the ferry.


  1. Looks like you had a great day! They have pastillas? Wow!

  2. Elizabeth, it looks so sunny and warm in Brooklyn. And all that yummy food is very tempting.

    I'll have to get some travel details from you! xo

  4. Great pictures and wonderful food!

  5. Looks like a good day was had by all.
    The palmiers look wonderful and the almond croissants look like the way they are suppose to be made.
    Now I am hungry.
    I had to look up pastilla there seems to be several regional one but I looked up the Moroccan one. Wonderful.

    cheers, parsnip

  6. So much to choose from! I was liking my lips at every food photo.

  7. I feel like I put on several pounds just looking at the photos!
