Spotted / Brooklyn / Fort Defiance


I once met a friend and her beau for dinner at Fort Defiance a few years back and enjoyed it so much, I vowed I’d return. And especially after last year’s hurricane that flooded this area of Brooklyn, I wanted to check and see how things were progressing in Red Hook. A couple businesses seemed to still be recovering, but Fort Defiance was back strong and running. I stopped in for a late afternoon snack at the bar just as they were closing up and prepping for an event. And as I enjoyed my tasty bites and chatted with so many of the friendly staff and patrons, I was immediately reminded of why I liked this place so much.
