It’s fun to go to a place called “Prime Meats” and not eat any meat. It’s also fun to go there the ONE TIME you think it’s appropriate to be in a t-shirt (I was repping foursquare on 4sq day!) and realize the place is sooooo Stumptown once you get there. That’s what I said to describe the place to my roommate and she knew exactly what I was saying. It was sooo Stumptown. They serve Stumptown coffee, so that’s part of it, but the staff and the people there were dressed the part. And I was in a t-shirt. And actual jeans. I don’t think I’ve worn actual jeans in months.

ANYWAY there I was in my foursquare t-shirt (with the Jetsetter badge on it, if you’re curious) and there we were at Prime Meats. Above is Lee – my friend Stacy’s friend – who is either lucky or unlucky enough to appear on my blog after my first time meeting her. She is drinking Stumptown coffee and having an egg and cheese biscuit sandwich.

This is Stacy. You can see the excitement on her face as she’s about to dig into her egg and cheese sandwich on a biscuit as well. Me on the other hand, well you know how I do:

I can’t even *remember* the last time I went out to brunch, so I had to make this count. Of course I got a biscuit too – and those were fab. This french toast was also fabulous and Stacy tried it and said it was simply the best she’s ever had. My opinion is – this city is just full of fabulous french toast and I’m not sure if I’ve experienced a clear winner but this one was definitely up there.

I need to go back to Prime Meats for dinner, order some meat, and not be wearing a t-shirt.

Are there reasons to leave Brooklyn? Sometimes I’m not sure. Brooklyn is freaking HUGE and there is really every thing you could ever want here. Every kind of neighborhood, every cuisine, every style. Last night’s adventures brought Kelly and I to Red Hook, a neighborhood I’ve been to all of one time, but a neighborhood I’m well-aware is full of good. And one good is the Red Hook Lobster Pound. Sure, you can get their lobster rolls on the weekends at the Brooklyn Flea, but we had a Blackboard Eats promo code so it was time to check out the actual shop.

You can get lobster packages to go at the Lobster Pound, or you can get your lobster to stay. Kelly and I decided to each go for a lobster roll and root beer and split a lobster bisque. Well, actually Kelly decided to get the lobster bisque and I decided we were sharing. But all the same!

There’s a lot of reasons I love the Red Hook Lobster Pound. One, it’s obviously delicious (just ask my sister), two, it’s Brooklyn and they’ve been at a lot of Brooklyn events (Brooklyn Flea and Brooklyn Bloggers Meetup on the top of my head) and three, I just like their style. And their Red Hook shop has a whole room with picnic tables for seating.

Oh, and the lobster bisque was amazing too.

And – if you’re in DC, they also have a Lobster Truck, which is an amazing idea and one I hope they bring to Manhattan, so I can grab ’em on my lunch breaks.
