Stinky Bklyn


261 Smith St.,
United States,

However playful its tangerine walls and funky signs, this specialty cheese and meat shop in Carroll Gardens is serious about its search for unique culinary expression, whether it be its ham bar, temperature- and humidity-controlled aging “cave,” or monthly cheese seminars. The borders of the wide, central aisle also contain a Brooklyn Roasting Company coffee bar, newsstand, and an extensive cocktail section of bitters, shakers, and mixes. Each summer, the store co-hosts Stinkfest—an outdoor food and music festival, which includes a cheese-eating contest.
