by Lisa Willner THE BITE: While I haven’t traveled to Turkey just yet, the food at Rocca Café-Lounge whets my appetite for a visit. I first ventured to Rocca (2712 Emmons Avenue) this past summer, shortly after it opened. The seaside gem boasts huge windows both inside and out for dining on the water. It was an outdoor summer…

So is it Shaikh’s Place or Donut Shoppe? I’ve referred to it interchangeably for years, always corrected by someone who is adamant about one or the other. Even Yelp hedges its bets. While the New York Times is hardly the arbiter of anything Southern Brooklyn, it’s going with Shaikh’s Place. The 24-hour donut and coffee…

THE BITE: Way back in 2009 when Ka Ka Bakery opened at 1505 Avenue U, we all had a good laugh. Ned made some puns, got a pork bun, and invited us to share in the joy of this oddly named bakery. Maybe it means something in Cantonese or Mandarin? I don’t know. Anyway, good times.…
