The Local. Rucola.

Tried Boerum Hill spot Rucola for brunch this past weekend.  If you haven’t been, you should – it’s a beautiful restaurant with a great vibe.  It has what seems like requisite nouveau-Brooklyn decor (reclaimed wood, Edison bulbs, exposed brick, wrought iron, etc.) but to their credit it feels really effortless and natural.  The food was simple and delicious: Courtney and I both had the slow roasted pulled pork sandwich, particularly notable for the nice combination of hot peppers & pickled green tomatoes.  So you get that delicious rich fatty taste of the pork cut by the briney, spicy and crunchy vegetables.  We were digging it.  Definitely warrants a return trip… next time, for dinner!

We'd love to hear what you think about this one.
