Dog Day Afternoon

It's Memorial Day weekend, and while everyone else has skipped town, I'm staying here for my cousin's wedding tomorrow. The lovely ladies who do the PR for flip*flopMURKUDIS lent me a few pairs of shoes for the weekend, and it was the perfect day to take them out. We had a hungover junk food picnic in Stuyvesant Cove Park, one of my favorite underutilized and relatively empty riverside haunts, steps away from where I grew up. Afterwards, we headed over to Williamsburg to hang out in Anton's beautiful backyard, drink rose wine, and play with all four of the adorable attention-seeking doggies that he's taking care of this weekend.

The highlight of the evening was our spontaneous visit to "Dr. Claw" (we missed you Maddy!), who prepares the best lobster rolls in all of New York City out of his Greenpoint apartment, selling them drug-dealer style via text-message. Lobster rolls are high on the list of trendy food items popping up all over the city these days, and in spite of their modest brown-bag presentation, delivered on the streets between parked cars, these Lobster rolls are devastatingly delicious. They're made with only a hint of mayonnaise, but with just the right amount of butter, and plenty of huge chunks of fresh lobster. At $14 each, they're well priced for a lobster roll, but an expensive addiction if you get hooked, which is inevitable. Luckily I don't live in Williamsburg, cause I would probably spend all of my extra income calling on Dr. Claw for a nightly fix. No pictures (I'm always too hungry to do any food photography), but there's a lovely video from my favorite local food blog, Food Curated, below. If you want to get in touch with Dr. Claw (who you might also recognize from Bobby Flay's Food Throwdown), you can contact him via his facebook page, or visit his website, Brooklyn Chowder Surfer. A must if you visit New York, or if you live here already...
