Friday Roundup: Dutch Dining, Vineyard Hopping, Book Festivaling

The Dutch feasting continues this weekend with Taste of New Amsterdam. Check out the Brooklyn restaurants offering a prix fixe for $24 (what the Dutch paid for Manhattan), including Bar Tabac and Pane & Vino. [TNA]

If you missed Mos Def at the Newport Jazz Festival, go to Governors Island on Saturday and get “Ecstatic.” [going]

If you’ve done the Long Island vineyard hopping, set out for the Lehigh Valley’s Harvest Weekend and enjoy $1 glasses of wine. Rent a hybrid. [LVW]

Saltie, a sea-inspired Williamsburg café with a menu sourced from organic Amish and New York farms, will open Friday, Sept 18. Elizabeth Schula from Egg will be in the kitchen. [GrubStreet]

If you’re thinking about what to read by the fire this season, book it to the free Brooklyn Book Festival and get inspired at events like “The Legacies Of John Updike And David Foster Wallace” and “Jonathan Lethem And Mary Gaitskill In Conversation.” [BBF]

Next year, the MET’s Costume Institute exhibit will be “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity,” and clothes will be sourced from Brooklyn. [NYMag]
