By now, you know to head to Brooklyn for an excellent cocktail in a trendy setting crafted by a bartender who is not a bartender, but in fact a mixologist. Food writer and author Barbara Scott-Goodman sourced a delicious collection of some of the borough’s best bar snacks so you can replicate the best of Brooklyn in your home bar and kitchen.

This is the Caesar salad of your dreams. It is packed with bold flavors and has lots of tasty crunch in every bite. You should always make a few extra eggs to make sure that you have enough with just the right degree of runniness when they’re split open over the salads.

Note: Gochujang is a Korean hot pepper paste. It is available at Asian markets and online.
