"Minnesota Bratwurst" — in Brooklyn!

DUMBO, Pizza Bars, and Bratwurst

In Minnesota, fashionable restaurants tout their delicacies from far away: fresh Alaskan salmon, Washington cherries, etc.

So, walking past one of the trendiest-looking bistros in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood (“Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass”) earlier this week, I noted that the top item on the chalkboard display was “Minnesota Bratwurst.”

I asked one of the staff exactly where in Minnesota, but all they knew was that it came from a Brooklyn butcher.

P.S.: to me, a “bar” is where you get a beer, or maybe a whiskey or screwdriver. In Manhattan, though, the term “pizza bar” seems to be popping up more and more.
