Eating at Brooklyn Seminar
Are there restaurants/delis close to the SBWC and the time to go out to grab lunch on Saturday and Sunday during the seminar? Bringing snacks to get through the day is easy. But I'm coming from out of town, so packing a full lunch from a hotel room is a little harder to do.
Thanks for any insight.
You might check the seminar thread and see if someone posted some info. In addition, I'll try to see if Paulie has some info I can post tonight or talk about during the beginning of the lecture tomorrow night.

Fort Reno Provisions
250 Beers, but a bit of of the way if you're walking.
A block away. Has poutine.
Highly recommended, but the place gets packed on weekends.
Opps, just read the question was about lunch options. On 4th Ave, there's Chinese take out, and if you walk a couple of blocks towards Union, there's a bunch of delis, diner, and a pizzeria.
Thanks! I saw some of the recommendations. I just wasn't clear as to whether those were pre- and post-seminar options or if we'd have the time to go out to some of those places for lunch.
I am looking forward to checking out both Bierkraft and Fleisher's. Looking at the menu: I'm thinking the pastrami spiced brisket sandwich will be good for fueling the squat/press/dead on Saturday, and some grass fed beef for bench and pc's on Sunday. With a big hooker or two thrown in for snack time, if Paulie procures us some of those gems.

If youre up for a troop. hit Fette Sau in williamsburg. Best BBQ in NY.
Make sure to get Key Lime pie at the little place around the corner from the gym. Its OUTSTANDING!! I'm jealous!
Also, the grocery store a block away is probably the best grocery store/deli I've ever been to in my life.
