When my boyfriend and I discussed our engagement this winter, I had two requirements for a ring - no diamonds and it had to be antique. I’d never been the Holly Golightly-type of gal to ogle in front of a Tiffany’s store. I’ve [...]

Eateries We Love - The Brooklyn Star

Deana Bianco | June 23rd, 2012

Comfort food is the rage in Brooklyn at the moment. The race is on between restaurants for the best friend chicken, biscuits and mac and cheese. Sick of waiting 30 minutes for tables at popular spots like Egg and Pies ‘n’ Thighs, I have become a loyal patron of The Brooklyn Star. [...]

It is one of the only spots where my boyfriend, who is a picky [...]
