Some neighborhood food news to start off your week:
- The New York Times looks at Brooklyn Taco in the Essex Street Market as a vibrant example of microlending in action.
- Paris-based Experimental Cocktail Club prepares for its New York debut, on Chrystie Street.
- Little Muenster, 100 Stanton Street, has launched a happy hour: Tuesdays-Fridays from 4-7 p.m. They’re offering 2-for-1 beers (Miller High Life and Corona) as well as $4 glasses of wine (in-box).
- Those the fluffy white oblongs for sale at the market on Grand Street at Chrystie are “dragon-beard candy,” a rare treat made of spun sugar, peanuts and coconut. LauHound gives the local version a thumbs-up.
