Over the summer I spent an afternoon hanging out in my neighborhood with British restauranteur and food writer Russell Norman. It was pretty darn awesome because he's a truly lovely person and has very good taste in Brooklyn restaurants. We visited Maison Premiere and feasted on oysters and bourbon-based cocktails, spent time in the garden at Roberta's, and basically demolished the ribs at Rye, all pictured below. Russell's book Spuntino: Comfort Food (New York Style) comes out on November third.
