Brooklyn Getaway


A couple of weeks ago my husband Matt took Clara to the beach at Fort Tilden while I was at work. I was so disappointed I couldn't go, but they promised to meet up with me for dinner, at a clam bar near the beach. I took the 5 train to the end of the line, they picked me up, and then we drove to this place called Jordan's Lobster Dock. It's completely not fancy, but it was delicious, and for a moment, I felt like I was on vacation. We met some regulars who gave us this tip: if you order from the take-out and get there before 7pm, you can eat your lobster sitting outside, for about half of what it would cost if you order inside. Since then, Matt has been back in the area, and tells me there's an even better place out there. Will keep you posted.
