[MUSIC] I'm Gail Simmons and today I'm taking you on a walking tour of my favorite cluster of New York neighborhoods. Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, and Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn. [MUSIC] I'm here at Mile End, a modern Montreal deli in the heart of Boerum Hill. It's incredible in this tiny little space they pack in so many delicious things. They're known for their famous smoked meat, their house smoked fish, and of course, their authentic Montreal bagels. All right, now, talk to me about smoked meat. Sure. The smoked meat is predominantly smoked like pastrami but unlike corned beef which is boiled. Can I have some please? Thank you. Whether it's the delicious smoked meat or any of their hearty dishes, Mile End is worth a stop. [MUSIC] Holler & Squall is a fantastic vintage home design store right on Atlantic Avenue. [MUSIC] I love exploring this shop. You just never know what you're going to find here. Beautiful lighting, furniture, even vintage jewelry. There's amazing surprises at every turn. I'm not walking down Court Street into Cobble Hill. One of my favorite places to stop for a hot coffee and warm pretzel is Cafe Pedlar. In addition to their excellent coffee, Cafe Pedlar also has great pizzas and pastry [BLANK_AUDIO] One of the things I love about coming to Seersucker is your really concise and special line lift. Can we try something? So Thirsty Owl is based up in the Finger Lakes. And they are one of the wineries doing wine on tap now. And it's It's a great new trend and it is green. It cuts down on packaging and all those things and keeps the wine at perfect temperature, and the wine is always fresh. [MUSIC] Two of my favorite dishes here are the crispy Mississippi catfish and the Brown sugar bourbon pork chop with harmony and brussel sprouts. There are so many new and exciting things opening in Brooklyn everyday. This is just a small taste of some of my favorites, and a glass of wine at [UNKNOWN] is the perfect way to end my tour. Enjoy your food and wine. [MUSIC]
