Lea’s Outdoor Italian Market

A few years ago I wrote about the good-but-not-great pizza at Lea in Ditmas Park. A few weekends ago I walked past Lea on my way to the Cortelyou Farmer’s Market and spotted some tables set up on the side of the restaurant. As I had seen on Eating In Translation, on weekends Lea has a small Italian market, at which they sell things like tomato sauce, fresh ricotta, and a wide variety of baked goods. At $4 per slice the pistachio cake pictured above is a little dear, but the great flavor of the cake made it worth the price. Even better was the gooey pistachio topping, somewhere between a jam and an icing. The complex flavors made the cake something truly special.
