The New Brooklyn Cookbook doesn’t come out till October, but you’ll have a chance to get an early copy at the Brooklyn Kitchen on September 11, when Sean Rembold (Marlow & Sons), Frank Castronovo (Frankies Spuntino), Tom Kearney (Farm on Adderley), and Kheedim Oh (Mama O’s Kimchee) participate in a panel discussion. The $65 admission includes an early copy of the book (featuring recipes from Roberta’s, Saul, DuMont, Applewood, Al Di La, the Good Fork, and 25 others) and tastes from some of the featured restaurants. Plus, beer from Sixpoint, which gets a profile in the tome (so do Mast Brothers, Cut Brooklyn, Hot Bread Kitchen, etc.). Meanwhile, the author of another recent Brooklyn-centric release, The Food Lovers’ Guide to Brooklyn, has launched a new iPhone app.

The Brooklyn Restaurant Scout app is available for $2.99 at the iTunes store and features Sherri Eisenberg’s and Christopher Wershoven’s profiles of 160 restaurants, with 700 photos. The app is rated “12+” for “Infrequent/Mild Alcohol, Tobacco, or Drug Use or References”— oh, those Frankies!
