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.
