bklyn foodie is an endeavor in documenting an obsession. It’s a blog about food in Brooklyn — from our experiences eating out and dining in, to more serious matters, like what should we be eating?
Incredibly, food has come to rest at the crossroads of many of today’s most pressing conversations — be that the environment, human rights, health or almost anything else you can dream up. Never has what you put on your plate had such an incredible impact. At the same time, we’ve never had so many choices of what to put on our plate. We strive to be part fun, part serious and always delicious.

Kristen V. Brown, Co-Founder and Editor: Kristen was grounded for the first time, when, after repeated warnings from Mom, she risked eating spoonfuls of brown sugar directly from the box. These days, such risk would probably require a little bit more than plain ol’ brown sugar, but the affection for food remains the same.
Kristen’s writing — about food and other such things – has appeared in publications including The New York Daily News, New York Press, amNew York and The Brooklyn Paper. These days she is the editor of the hyperlocal news website Park Slope Patch. She loves carrots, carrot cake and pretty much any form of Mexican food.

His love affair with beer began when he suddenly couldn’t find any. Living in India, he survived on the only brand available: swill produced by the country’s largest airliner.
Now riding the local brewing trend in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Brian homebrews in his spare time with hopes of tickling his own taste buds and works for Sierra Nevada to pay the bills. His writing has appeared in Dazed & Confused, DownBeat, The Patriot Ledger, Fast Company and Jazz.com.

Lauren Uhlan, Contributor: Lauren is one of those people lucky enough to actually have an Italian grandmother, who as it turns out, is also an incredible cook. Gathering around the family table for Sunday dinner and studying in Italy, she developed an intense love affair with Italian food, which eventually blossomed into a healthy, long-term relationship.
Lauren writes Italian with Lauren here on bklyn foodie every Thursday. When she’s not dreaming about eggplant parm, she spends her days as a project manager in the textile industry.
