Justin Warner's Open Kitchen

Justin has lived a few blocks up from Do or Dine for about two years. He has an open kitchen and lofted bed. One large street-facing window lets in a ton of natural light.

Books

Most of the books belong to Justin's girlfriend. "She’s the intelligent thinking person of this relationship, I'm like...the cook," he says.

Dining Table

The vintage dining table came from a garage sale in the neighborhood.

Entryway and Kitchen

Justin builds a lot in the apartment. The loft was there when they moved it, but he added hooks for all of his hats and caddies for the remotes. He explains, "I like finding the exact right place for the exact right thing."

Justin Grating Cheese

Roomano cheese is one of his favorites. He gushes, "I’m really obsessed with this cheese. It’s like an aged gouda. It’s like salt, but cheese."

Kegerator and Shelves

The Star Wars mug is a hint of nerdiness in the apartment, sitting on top of a kegerator.

Merf

Justin has had Merf since high school.

Breakfast

Lucifer the cat is interested in the four-egg omelette with oyster and beech mushrooms and fingerling potatoes. "I just got a vacuum sealer, so I can do things like cook all my food to the scientifically perfect temperature, put it in a bag, and use it later. Vacuum sealers tend to scare people in that it makes food look terrifying, but the cool thing about it is that it makes everything taste better," Justin says.

Kewpie and Justin

"She loves fetch. That’s all she thinks about. It’s pretty much why she exists," Justin says of his dog, Kewpie.

Record Player

It's not a Brooklyn apartment without a record player.

Wall Art

Among Justin's wall art is a painting his friend did of his dog riding a buffalo (pictured at the top of the right photo).

Bonus Turtle

"I always forget that they even exist. They’re practically plants, but ya know, they’re alive," Justin affectionately describes his two pet turtles, Soupy and Aristurtle.

Bonus Puppy

Kewpie is named after Kewpie mayonnaise, one of Justin's favorite condiments. He even has a tattoo of the borderline creepy baby logo.
