Where to Eat, Shop & Hangout in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn

I live in a quaint, historic Brooklyn neighborhood called Boerum Hill, which is south of Brooklyn Heights, and north of the more popular Cobble Hill! It's quiet, beautiful, and has some fantastic shops and restaurants. Boerum Hill has a very old-world feel, with tree-lined streets, and dreamy brownstone-lined blocks. It's a perfect place to come eat, shop, explore, and get a taste of Brooklyn. Boerum Hill is much more toned-down than say Williamsburg, but I find the curation of stores to be a bit fresher than those further south in Park Slope, so you should come give it a try! Here are my go-tos for eating, drinking, shopping and chilling in the neighborhood!

Spaghetti with Zucchini, Parmesan + Garlic (Noodles + Zoodles)

Zoodles on their own just don't do it for me. I eat an entire bowl of them and am starving 10 minutes later. Just me? I also love pasta so freaking much that damn it how can you say the two are the same? Ok don't worry, this isn't a rant on zucchini noodles. They too have their merits. They are delightful in salads and excellent when you want to keep things light and tight. And even more so, they're perfect when you want zucchini with your pasta, but not huge chunks of veg that don't really blend in.
 

Summer Linguine with Clams

To me, summer symbolizes abundance. There is a cornucopia of food, of greenery, of salty beach days; until she zips right by like she always does, and before you know it, summer is over. I try to tell myself it's going to fly by "so enjoy it!" Savor it. Don't waste it watching Netflix on the couch. Can you think of a better way to spend a summer night than slurping pasta, fishing clams out of their shells, little morsels of sweet corn and salty capers? I can. Just add 1 rooftop and 2 glasses of cold white wine.
