Following the recent release of their rad debut record Lost Pet Poster Template, the Brooklyn duo shares their go-to spots across the borough
Best of Brooklyn is our newest profile format, and we ‘re stoked to bring in Erica Marchetta-Wood and Danny Sullivan of indie collage band Tallbird to give us their take on the best places in Brooklyn. We provided the prompts and Tallbird filled us in over email.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE…
To watch music – King’s Theatre. To play music – Baby’s All Right
House of Wax at the Alamo Drafthouse in Downtown Brooklyn. They have all of these incredible, anatomic body parts and heads (made of wax) from old movies. It’s creepy and dark but also so cozy and the drinks are incredible.
I will always have a love for the bodega I used to live by on Nostrand and Pacific. They had a perfect cuddly cat and would always give me cheap cigarettes back when I smoked.
Barboncino in Crown Heights. They can have all my money.
Bien Cuit, hunnie! Give me some espresso and fresh baked goods anytime of the day.
Franklin Ave feels like home.
I have yet to find a more delicious breakfast than the pancakes platter at Colina Cuervo.
Prospect. I love it with all my heart.
Erica: Chavela’s forever.
Danny: Bunna Cafe in Bushwick – amazing vegan Ethiopian food.
Danny: The Thing in Greenpoint – I’ve gotten lots of amazing old records for almost no money from there.
Erica: Call me basic, but I love me some Rough Trade Records. You can grab a coffee, listen to a record, and find some really great printed magazines.
Drinking margaritas and eating poutine at Smorgasburg on Sunday mornings in Prospect Park.
+ ARTISTS’ CHOICE. ANYTHING ELSE YOU LOVE?
Mount Prospect (right next to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens) has turned into a really nice makeshift dog park during quarantine. We go there sometimes after work to meet friends and it’s like a nice little dog-filled world.
