Radish- a lovely new general store has opened in our hood and I stopped by to check it out. I couldn't resist taking a few photos and telling you all about it. It's really well designed and super cute.But beyond the standard general store offereings - radish offers an array of prepared foods that they sell by the pound. An Orzo Salad, a token Radish Salad (but of course), and I tried the fruit salad which was an Apricot and Blackberry Salad with pistachios and mint (it was d-lish). They also have warm foods like mac and cheese and Beef chili (in those gorgeous grey staub pots). The little shop was full of handy little picnic gear too - like mexican blankets, enamel plates and tiffen stackable lunchboxes. Seems like the perfect picnic go-to spot. The shop stocks a bunch of local pickings, including our friends from Whimsy and Spice, Brooklyn Honey and My Friend's Mustard (made with six-point ale). Oh did I mention they make home-made sodas too ? I could go on and on....but it's definitely worth a trip to see for yourself. Radish is located at 158 Bedford Ave (between 9th St & 8th St) (718) 782-2744.
