Last Meals in Brooklyn

Jen and Ben joined Cafe Drake for an old-fashioned Sunday supper of roast beef during these final NYC days. We learned that our skills at classic Americana cuisine may need further honing but a good time was had by all, not least due to enchanting company and seriously special vino contributions from J&B.

After two hours of roasting in a low oven with beef broth and red wine, Cafe Drake added a variety of potatoes, carrots and turnips to the mix. Roast another hour.

Meals now are served in the living room, surrounded by packed boxes ready for the moving truck.
