Caribbean Cuisine & Picturesque Pies In Crown Heights
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
Courtesy of St. Vincent and the Grenadines native Chef Rawlston Williams, The Food Sermon is a small, but elevated spin on Caribbean cuisine. Inside its open concept Crown Heights layout, you’ll be surrounded by native Caribbean art, stark-black shiplap and white subway tiles offset by pops of yellow Lompoc stools, and a wrap-around glass facade. And impeccable flavor aside, you won’t soon find better Insta-friendly plating in Brooklyn. These bowls are masterclasses in presentation.
After dinner, you’ve hopefully left some room for dessert. Pels Pie Co. is a picturesque pie shop that is equal parts inventive and adorable. Between the vibrant abstract wallpaper, neon signage sporting some brand-appropriate text (see: “fresh pie” and “Pels”), a floating herb garden strung window-side at the entrance, and an intricately detailed tin plated steel ceiling, this pie shop is peak twee. Their menu rotates seasonally, but expect a blend of “classic and slightly experimental” options like grapefruit honey lavender and sweet potato marshmallow. Pair your pies with a cup of Counter Culture Coffee or Kusmi Tea (though, yes, local beer and wine options are also available).
