At Brooklyn Larder, there are tantalizing displays of cheese, artfully arranged in a towering mound. There are garlicky ramps to take home (mine didn’t make it; I scarfed them down on the No. 2 train). Also, pastries, imported canned goods, not to mention their house-brand gelato, which is worth the trip alone.
Overall, Compared to Zabar’s on the Upper West Side, it’s no contest. At the venerable emporium, the eats are plentiful and delicious and the prices generally fair.
Here’s a sampling of some of Brooklyn Larder’s other offerings (their web site is under construction).
- 1/2 roast chicken $8.
- Meatballs with tomato sauce $17/lb
- Maccheroni & Cheese (yes, that’s how they spell it) $11/lb
- Egg Salad $8/lb
