Brooklyn Dispatch: Far-Flung Eats and Little-Known Streets

Listen Up: heritageradionetwork.com/programs/40-Brooklyn-Eats

Oh yes, all you city chowhounders, episode 13 of our Heritage Radio Network show is just for you: Hitting the streets for Coney Island tacos and tortas, Ditmas Park dumplings, Trinidadian roti and Caribbean Chinese food in Crown Heights, Brighton Beach Ukrainian bests, Old-school Italian-American in Bensonhurst and the secret codeword to let you know you’ve found legitimate Jewish eats in Borough Park, kind of like the kind your Bubby would make.

Listen to all this and more, courtesy our two guests, two truly righteous Brooklyn dudes who know their way from one end of Flatbush to another. That’s Matt Levy, a native Brooklynite whose family runs one of the city’s best tour guide companies — Levy’s Unique New York — and Joshua M. Bernstein, a food and beer journalist extraordinaire (you read it, he probably wrote for it) who specializes in seeking out the really amazing stuff around the city so you don’t have to. Listen to them both rip up the borough of Kings right here, and stay tuned for more of these guys during a show on dive bars–yes, dive bars!–in the future!
