On today’s THE FOOD SEEN David Massoni and John Bush pair up to bring Thistle Hill Tavern to Park Slope.

David’s background in the Batali empire, and John’s punk rock days as a photographer (NOFX‘s Fat Mike is actually a proprietor at THT), have the neighborhood singing the praise of it’s locally-sourced seasonal produce, dairy and meat, and sustainable seafood. Their next project Talde, with Top Chef’s Dale Talde opens next month with an Asian-American menu which will span the flavors of Southeast Asia. But how’d they piece up the pieces (“American Pickers” style)? This episode is sponsored by Heritage Foods USA‘s No Goat Left Behind initiative.
