Boy Tour TONIGHT in Greenpoint

If you’re heading out to Greenpoint tonight to see/hear Willy Vlautin and Ross Raisin (authors of Northline and Out Backwards, respectively) at Word Books, you might get hungry afterwards. Here are some establishments that I, as a resident of Greenpoint, have personally tested, all within a five-minute walk of Word:

68: Quiet, classy, not too expensive. I recommend the spicy penne with tomato cream sauce. (Greenpoint Ave between Franklin and West)

Pio Pio Riko: There’s no website that I can find, but they don’t need one. The best rotisserie chicken, rice, and beans you’ll ever have, and it’s dirt cheap. (Manhattan Ave at the corner of Huron st)

Corner Frenzy: Also with no official website. Yes, Corner Frenzy is otherwise known as the M&W Laundromat. But they have 24 flavors of soft serve ice cream, as well as slushies, hot dogs, and various other items. On a hot night there’s nothing like Corner Frenzy. (across the street from Pio Pio Riko at Manhattan and Huron)
