Summary: Following the rise of soon-to-be mainstays like Mast Brothers and Prime Meats, the Times looks at the flourishing, soon-to-be unbearable foodie movement as it manifests itself in Brooklyn.
Representative Quote: "These Brooklynites, most in their 20s and 30s, are hand-making pickles, cheeses and chocolates the way others form bands and artists’ collectives. They have a sense of community and an appreciation for traditional methods and flavors. They also share an aesthetic that’s equal parts 19th and 21st century, with a taste for bold graphics, salvaged wood and, for the men, scruffy beards."
Takeaway: We can't say they were wrong, but god, the tidings of overwrought things to come.
