Over the weekend, Grub Street celebrated the harmony between old and new when it comes to eating in Ridgewood. Despite the artist spillover from Bushwick and new hip arrivals like Bunker (Vietnamese) and Houdini’s Kitchen Labratory (wood-fired pizza), the neighborhood also boasts old-time establishments still dishing out excellent food. The food blog compiled a list of both old and new spots — 17 in total — to check out. They include Catania Bakery, where you should try the cannoli cream, the new American restaurant Ltauha, popular bakery/cafe Norma’s, the 90-year-old taproom and banquet hall Gottscheer Hall (pictured), and Rosa’s Pizza & Pasta, known for its Sicilian and Grandma pies.
