Eating NYC: Fette Sau
Last Sunday morning, Evan and I set out to find this place on our list of restaurants for brunch but being the newbies that we are, all we actually found was ourselves lost in Brooklyn. Wandering around for anything that looked good, we stumbled upon Fette Sau, a converted body shop that boasts smoked meats, craft beer by the gallon and the best American whiskey list in New York City. Decorated in reclaimed wood benches, tractor seat stools, handwritten menu’s and Victrola pendant lights, this place has the authentic feel of country without any of the kitsch. Smoked beef brisket was certainly not what I was in the mood for but when I saw that all the tables were taken at a restaurant that opened at noon when it was only 12:15, I knew we had struck gold. Evan’s the true carnivore in our duo, I actually didn’t eat meat for about 8 years so foods like brisket are very foreign to me. I let him do all of the ordering- beef brisket, pork and beans and fresh-baked sweet rolls. The pork and beans were smokey with actual chunks of pork, the brisket was amazing and while they suggest to eat it straight, I doused mine in their yummy homemade bbq sauce. Everything was so good, I can’t wait to go back! Ribs and beer next time for sure! If you’re in the Brooklyn area, definitely check Fete Sau out. xoxo!
