We thought Sam Sifton had sold his Red Hook digs, but maybe not: Serious Eats checks in with the ex-dining critic about his favorite eats in and around South Brooklyn’s sleepy seaside village of a neighborhood. Forget about late-night and delivery: According to Sifton, there is none in the hood (horrors!). However, if you want a mean slice, head to House of Pizza & Calzones; and what with Defonte’s, Rocky Sullivan’s, and the Good Fork, there’s some pretty good meat between buns. [Serious Eats]
