Brooklyn Cider House
Feel like you're in Spain's Basque country with a trip to Brooklyn Cider House in Bushwick. Sample raw cider from massive wooden barrels while learning about the aging process. Cider maker Peter Yi has created a unique spot to showcase five ciders produced in Upstate New York. The space, complete with dining hall, will also serve as a showcase for New York State ciders, wine and spirits. The menu, meanwhile, gets its inspiration from Basque cooking, including a Cowboy Ribeye Steak, Chorizo Sausage and Bacalao Omelettes. Yi's ciders are produced at Twin Star Orchards in New Paltz where they are working on producing heirloom apples. See more
