Culture on the Cheap
Spotted On Leonard Street: Haab
Filed under: 11206, East Williamsburg, East Williamsburg Brooklyn, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn
Yesterday yours truly went on not one, but two walks. Why, you ask? Because I simply could not decide between going to Long Island City and knocking around one of my favorite streets: Grand. To this end I hustled out to Long Island City, looped back to Greenpoint for a quick restroom break and a glass of water and back out I went. It was at the intersection of Leonard Street and Grand Street that I spied with my Mexican food maven eye what you see above: Haab. Needless to say I entered this establishment without delay. I asked the very nice waitress and cook staff how long they have been open for business. The lattermost replied: “since Friday”. While the menu (which said waitress gave me— they do not have a take out menu— yet?) is hardly vegetarian friendly there are a few items to be had. And try them I will. If the staff I encountered today is in any way indicative of the quality of the food, methinks I am in for a real treat!
