National Honey Month

To celebrate National Honey Month, We8that presents our top 3 favorite honey infused dishes and drinks from around the city.

EMILY (pictured above)
Pizza and honey might not be your typical combination, but somehow Emily makes it work like magic. This snug little pizzeria is steps away from the Clinton-Washington Avenues station, and offers delightful pies that will blow your mind. The Colony and Emily are two different takes on a honey pizza. While the Colony is a more savory pie with crispy pepperoni and spicy jalapeños, the Emily is a slightly sweeter vegetarian friendly pie, topped with mozzarella, truffle sottocenere, a sprinkle of crushed pistachios, and to finish, a drizzle of honey. The wait at Emily’s can be quite a long one during peak hours. But there is no need to fret, making a reservation on OpenTable will insure you a seat on arrival, or you can head over to Sisters, a bar across the street, where you can enjoy a delicious cocktail while killing time.

GREECOLOGIES
If you’re a yogurt lover and want to try some seriously delicious creations served with honey, swing by Greecologies in Little Italy. This beautiful “acropolistic” shop offers yogurt from grass fed cows–that means no GMOs, sweeteners, or thickeners. We recommend both the traditional and strained type topped with fresh blueberries, raspberries, and a dollop of their “luscious honey.” Along with their beautifully packaged jams and granola on sale, Greek mythology and history books are available for your reading pleasure.

JACOB’S PICKLES
Along with their delicious heart-warming comfort food, Jacob’s Pickles serves some exquisite drinks that will leave you happy and satisfied. Try the Honey Julep (pictured to the right), a concoction of four roses bourbon, muddle mint, and honey syrup – if you are a sweet tooth go for this one! Or, if you prefer your drinks on the more refreshing side, try the Tennessee Honey Suckle (pictured to the left), which includes Dickle #12, orange preserves, clover honey, and fresh squeezed lemonade.

Best Pizza

What’s the best New York pizza according to you? In this city that has practically a pizza place around every corner, it’s those that serve unique toppings or really solid slices that make the cut. Today, we are here to share one of our own favorite pizza places in Williamsburg.

Located on Havemeyer between North 7th and 8th in Williamsburg, Best Pizza lives up to its name. This joint offers classic cheese slices to more unique ones, such as our favorite, the Veggie pizza. Unlike other pizza places that are creamy and on the heavier side, this particular pizza is light and crispy. Our recommendation, the veggie pizza is topped with cheese, cauliflower, kale, and golden and red beets that still retain their fresh and crispy nature. We also enjoyed the white slice, which comes with sweet caramelized onions sprinkled on top. Needless to say sweet and savory always works on a pizza.
