Wheated & Episode 4 of the Mike's Hot Honey Podcast

March 23, 2017 Michael Kurtz

Dave Sheridan's pizzeria Wheated, located on Church Ave in Brooklyn, might have the best bar and alcohol selection of any pizzeria we've been to.  Sheridan, a Kentucky native, has built an impressive whiskey list that rivals any in the city and, even if you're not a whiskey drinker, you're sure to find a cocktail that's made to your liking.  But even as remarkable as the drinks are at Wheated, it's the electric, Italian deck oven and the delicious pies it cranks out that are the true stars of the show. We visited Wheated on a Thursday night to hang with...

February 16, 2017 Michael Kurtz

You could label 61 Local a restaurant or cafe but that wouldn't encompass the broad range of roles the eatery plays in its community. Located just off of bustling Smith Street in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, owner Dave Liatti's "public house," is, more than anything, a place for the local community to gather and share in the riches of the city's food scene. Functioning as a bar, coffee shop, restaurant, educational/event space and home base for Brooklyn's locavore scene, 61 Local lives up to it's name. Liatti, a former engineer with Six Point Brewery, opened 61 Local in 2010. The menu,...
