Fulgurances Laundromat, Greenpoint

Paris’s rotating-chef concept diner Fulgurances is making its mark on Brooklyn this summer. Dubbed the Laundromat in a nod to the location’s previous line of business, the joint will spotlight a number of head chefs in the next year, with Victoria Blamey first in line. The Chilean cook has worked in some of New York’s most fêted establishments over the years, including Gotham Bar & Grill and Chumley’s, and her recent creations include scallop ceviche and bone marrow-topped burgers.

Little Island Events, Meatpacking District 

The new Heatherwick Studios-designed Little Island – a manmade peninsula jutting from the Meatpacking district, complete with park and outdoor theatre space – has a series of events for urbanites looking to fill their diaries. Broadway extravaganza Tina and Friends is a free ticketed event taking place on 26 June. But if you prefer something on the quieter side, don’t miss out on Little Island’s evening with the American Ballet or the storytelling festival in July.

Evil Twin, Dumbo

New taproom Evil Twin is already a favourite among Brooklyn residents. Having gained a cult following at its first location in Queens, it has now brought its “smoothie-style” beers to Dumbo, a block away from the waterfront. Options range from sour ale Woody’s Orange Cream to guava and habanero beers, so don’t be afraid to get a little fruity.
