Atrium DUMBO

Located right by the water and the Brooklyn Bridge, you’ll find neighborhood gem, Atrium DUMBO in Brooklyn.

The restaurant is set in a loft-like atmosphere with an upstairs overlooking the lower level and open kitchen. It’s a mix of nature, a bit industrial and a romantic garden party with their ceiling-strung lights. I guess you could say you really do feel like you’re dining in an atrium.

I ordered the Atlantic Salmon (salsify, kale, hazelnut brown butter). It was delicious. The kale was cooked, slightly wilted and seasoned. It was my first time trying salsify, which is a root vegetable, tasting similar to a cross between a parsnip, carrot and yucca, and I really enjoyed it. The salmon was tender, savory, well seasoned and nicely portioned.

Location: 15 Main Street, Brooklyn
The Long and Short: Would I go back? Definitely.
Would I recommend it? Yes, the ambiance and food were great. And on a nice day, you’re just a step away from the water where you can take a stroll past the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.

Candy! I love it. So, when I walked into Dewey’s Candy in DUMBO, I was just like a…well, kid in a candy store.

Brightly colored and wall-to-wall decked out with candy options, there really is something for everyone here. You can pop in to fill up bags of gummies, sours, fruit candies and chocolates, or pick up some novelty and nostalgic candy from decades past.
