Live Out Your Own Version of Antiques Roadshow Before Getting Stuffed with Comfort Food
Named for the tidal straight that gets its name from the legend that Brooklyn farmers used to drive their cattle across at low tide to graze on Governors Island grass, Buttermilk Channel (the body of water) served as inspiration and namesake for Buttermilk Channel (the restaurant). This Carroll Gardens American bistro shines with its version of American comfort food classics like buttermilk fried chicken and grilled flat iron steak, and we love the homey, neighborhood feel, which is amped up by the communal table made from repurposed wood from an old Red Hook warehouse.
Put your name down at Buttermilk, then head to Black Gold Brooklyn to browse the trove of vinyl, oddities, and knick knacks on offer here. Whether you’re into punk, funk, or soul, they’ve got it all. While there are antiques aplenty, we daresay this is not your grandmother’s antique shoppe, as there’s a rather robust collection of taxidermied animals available for purchase as well. You can finally live out your own version of Antiques Roadshow.
