This past Sunday, The Daily Croissant celebrated Bastille day in Brooklyn. Although the festival was a tad underwhelming and more geared toward French expats playing Pétanque, we took it as an opportunity to explore a lesser known neighborhood in Brooklyn.

Summer is officially here. Yesterday was the summer solstice, the longest day of light in the year. I celebrated with friends at Bar Taco while enjoying margaritas and beautiful views. I’ve been an English teacher for 11 years now and for the past 2 summers, I didn’t work! It’s great to have time off in […]
We’re pretty serious about food over here at The Daily Croissant. We do our research, take recommendations, and stumble upon some of the great food we find in NYC. It was a spontaneous Saturday outing when my winery plans got cancelled and I had a craving for tacos that we found our beloved Playa Betty. […]
