Jordan Colon: Local Food, Local Pottery

Not only does Jordan Colon make wonderful, nothing-but-local food at his restaurant EAT, in Greenpoint, he’s actually gone all the way with the locally sourced philosophy and started making pottery upon which to serve it. Along with his girlfriend, Arla Bascon, Colon’s been firing plates and bowls in a basement kiln, and has shown a real talent for throwing pots (no, not that kind of throwing pots), making rough, elegant vessels that echo the simple, delicious food he serves. The only logical next step will see Colon building the restaurant’s tables and chairs from the woodlot he manages out back (and we’re only half kidding on that one). 124 Meserole Avenue
