D.U.M.B.O.

17 May

If you aren’t familiar with NYC, then chances are you’ve never heard of D.U.M.B.O.

DUMBO is a neighborhood in Brooklyn and it stands for “Down under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.”

This past weekend, Alex and I found ourselves in DUMBO so that we could meet with a potential wedding photographer.  The meeting and our visit went well!

First up, we stopped for lunch at O’Crepes.

O’Crepes is a small creperie with a menu that features local and organic ingredients.

They offer both savory and sweet crepes with the option to create your own if you don’t like any of their signature crepes.  Everything looked so yummy but we were there for lunch so we stuck with savory crepes.  I ordered the J Hook which was a buckwheat crepe filled with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and spinach.  Alex went with the Architectural Digest which had chicken, mushrooms, ratatouille, and onions.

We got to watch the chef hard at work!  He made the crepes right in front of us in no time flat.

Yum!  This crepe was huge!  I couldn’t finish the whole thing but the part that I did eat was great.  My only complaint was that the smoked salmon was very salty.  I think if I ever find myself back at O’Crepes, I’ll order what Alex got.  His dish was fantastic.

After lunch, we had a little bit of time before our appointment so we decided to walk around.  Not two steps from the restaurant, what should we come across?  A humongous candy shop.

Alex was thrilled.  He was very focused and had to make sure he walked away with the best of the best.  Candy shopping is no joke. 🙂

Dewey’s was such a fun shop!  There was so much to look at and to taste.  Alex and I were quite pleased with our purchases.

As we finally made our way to the photographers, we ran into this guy.  I couldn’t leave without snapping a picture!  He said hi and requested that you go to Brooklyn for a visit.

🙂 We had a great time and hope to go back soon.  There was so much to see that we only scratched the surface!

Have you ever been to Brooklyn?
