Last year I checked out the food truck Vendr.TV bday party at the Cove in Williamsburg. Despite the cold and the long lines, it was a blast with great food, music and beers.
Well another year has quickly past and Daniel is setting up a 2nd party. Here’s his invite and link to register:
See you there!!!
Last year, many of you came to Williamsburg, Brooklyn to celebrate VendrTV’s 1st Birthday. The Party was a huge success. Tons of great food, killer music, and lots of dancing. Best of all, was that I got to hang with so many of you!
Well, VendrTV’s approaching it’s second birthday, and we’re trying to figure out what to do! We think we’ll do something a bit more low key this year, but we’re still figure it out.
I’m trying to get a head count of who might be around, and interested in attending. The party will probably be sometime in February.
If you think you’d like to come, please click the link below and add yourself to the list. I’ll update you with information when we start to lock things down.
Hope you’re all doing well, and I hope I get to see you all soon again!

I first noticed Ottoman’s Cafe on my way to the W4th train station. It’s clean white minimalist space is a stark contrast from the greasy 2 bros pizza and the bright flashing lights of the head shops on the other side of the IFC Cinema. After I entered I kind of regretted it at first because here’s a falafel or döner kebab sandwich for $6-$7 when you could easily go outside and find a halal cart and get one for just $4. But I gave it a shot and I have to say I’m extremely impressed.
Ottoman’s Café is the real deal and their döner kebabs are far different from any of the halal carts. First of all, after they slice the meat off of the rotisserie, they lightly heat it over a grill along with the pita bread giving the meat and the bread a crispy smoky flavor. Then they use fresh leafy lettuce onions and tomatoes and finally the white sauce isn’t some bland unrecognizable sauce, but a sauce where you can actually taste the yogurt with a hint of dill.
In my opinion Ottoman’s Cafe makes one of the best Döner Kebab sandwiches in town. Reminds me of the ones I got out in Cologne a few years ago. Ottoman’s Cafe has outdoor seating which is great for the summer times, not to mention its proximity makes it an ideal place to get great food to sneak into the IFC as well. Go check it out!

Among the brightly lit shops and restaurants on Montague St in Brooklyn Heights is a very personable Mediterannean and Turkish restaurant called Taze. Just to get into the restaurant feels like you are going over to a friend’s house as you enter into an unmarked apartment building entrance and walk up a flight of stairs (watch out for the mail that is perched over the mailboxes next to the staircase!). Once inside, you have a choice of sitting at one of the tables that overlook Montague (great people watching viewpoints) or taking a tour through the kitchen to get toTaze’s hidden outdoor patio. It was a nice night with only a slight breeze, so we chose the outdoor patio and sat down next to a table of girls enjoying a bottle of wine and a large hookah.
We started with the red lentil soup which was nicely spiced and served with a dish of warm toasted pita bread. Next was a plate of mucver (fried zucchini pancakes) covered with dill and a light yogurt sauce. Finally we attempted (but failed) to finish the grilled special for two. It’s an enormous plate of delicious meats including beef kebabs, chicken, and lamb over rice and salad. If you are going to order this, bring some help – you could easily split it among four to be honest. We’re definitely coming back because we heard the fish specials are great and we didn’t even make it for dessert. I’m also pretty sure the Taze’s outdoor patio will become a makeshift beergarden this summer. Enjoy!]]>
