I’ve lived in Manhattan for almost four years now. I am a Brooklyn lover. I mean, literally, any chance that I can get I will take an adventure over the bridge. I’m only at the beginning stages of my love affair with BK, and I have no intentions of cutting ties anytime soon. There are countless restaurant, bars and spots to explore (did I mention my love for just straight-up exploring? I love to frolic all over Brooklyn and Manhattan with zero agenda whatsoever).
On one of my last escapades over the bridge, I decided to check out Paulie Gee’s for pizza followed by cocktails at Ramona’s. I have to give my co-worker Kayla credit as she is a Green Point resident. She said we HAD to try Paulie Gee’s pizza but that we had to beat the rush and get there early. We arrived a little after 6 pm (early bird special, I know). This turned out to be a great move as this place truly fills up, and fast. The pizza was pretty amazing, but I recommend keeping it simple. There’s nothing like their margherita. To note, there is no signage whatsoever outside. I mean, for real, this place is hidden behind two huge wooden doors which really adds to it’s true old school / barn-like feel.
After Paulie Gee’s we of course were in need of a night cap. We headed over to this adorable spot called Ramona’s. With tons of lit candles, and simple decor I was loving the atmosphere. Perfect for a first date or grabbing drinks with girlfriends. My blackberry bourbon cocktail was perfection. I highly recommend getting your butt over the bridge. Explore, grab some pizza, and a cocktail or two. I give you, the perfect early evening excursion. Cheers!
