Buttermilk Channel

The name comes from the body of water between Brooklyn and Governors Island, which according to lore has currents so fierce it could turn the milk in cows’ bellies to buttermilk, back in the day before Brooklyn was its own city and farmers used to take their cattle to graze on Governors Island. The owners of Buttermilk Channel have inherited that same hardy thinking. They make their own pickles, cheeses, and charcuterie, as well as cure their own bacon. Buttermilk itself makes an appearance or two, in the house-made ricotta and the batter for the fried chicken. That’s the spirit! (524 Court St., Brooklyn 718-852-8490.)
