Easter Sunday was a beautiful day in Brooklyn. We met friends for brunch at this newish restaurant, Isa, which is owned (and designed) by Taavo Somer, owner of Freemans in the LES. I immediately fell in love with the interior. Isa is so unique and beautifully designed. It feels rough, but every detail is intentional. In this NY Times piece, Somer calls it primitive modernism and it is so fitting. It has clean, yet natural lines. It is bright, airy and very cozy – like a sophisticated treehouse for adults. Brunch was quite good, but I really want to go back for dinner. Eggs are never really the best barometer for experiencing a chefs talents.
After brunch, we walked around Williamsburg. The neighborhood was so nice and quiet. We stopped by Beautiful Dreamers, a few other great boutiques and of course Mast Brothers Chocolate for Easter treats. We ended up for longer than I care to tell at Radegast Biergarten. Please note my new easter egg clogs – they make me happy!
