On Saturday, I went along with friends to Greenpoint’s Eat Records. A friend of mine recently took over running their kitchen, and I was curious to see what the new setup was like. The last time I’d been there, the balance between cafe and record store was much more significantly in favor of the latter. Things have changed since then: the actual music selection has become more concentrated and is now entirely vinyl in nature, while the seating — now polished-wood benches — can accommodate larger groups. It’s an interesting shift, but one that makes sense given the emphasis on food there now.
How was the food? I’m not the most unbiased observer, to be true, but I was impressed: a good combo of eggs, fresh tomatoes, bacon, and feta; deviled eggs with just enough spiciness to make things interesting; and a fine cup of coffee. Alex opted for a melon soup which I tried as well — good, rich consistency without losing the essential, um, melon-ness. And even on a crushingly humid morning, their back garden managed to feel comfortable.
