Car On Congress Walks Itself Across The Street?

August 10, 2012

A Cobble Hill Blog tipster who has lived in the neighborhood for a decade sent us the following mysterious quandary, which we shall file under the WTF category: “On Sunday we parked our car on Congress Street between Clinton and Henry on the north side, in a spot that would expire Thursday morning. When I dutifully went to move it last night, it was now on the south side of the street. The north side was covered in fresh tar and marked with saw horses, so clearly it was moved for road/utility work.”

She adds, “I am grateful the city did not tow the car (when we left it there Sunday we saw no warnings), but the car was in reverse with the emergency brake still on and locked, just as we left it. How in the world did they physically move it, and are there any regulations about this?”

Any ideas, out there?

‘Serious Eats’ Returns To Cobble Hill, With High Marks For Spanish ‘La Vera’

April 19, 2012

Serious Eats seems to have some serious love for the ever-evolving restaurant scene in Cobble Hill. A week after serving up a loving review of intimate eatery Battersby (255 Smith Street), the webbie is licking its chops over La Vara, a new Spanish restaurant at 268 Clinton Street, which explores the Moorish and Jewish flavors of Spain.

According to the Serious Eats review, husband-and-wife chef duo Alex Raij and Eder Montero offer “a welcoming vibe for both family meals and date nights alike, with a menu ranging from snacky nibbles to bigger entrée plates.”

Read the full review here, with a slideshow of menu items that will likely have you running in for a taste… So far, it appears the restaurant has no website of its own.
