Restaurants In Brooklyn

our suggestions

  1. Battersby
    8.4

    Battersby

    255 Smith Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231

    In a little under a year, Battersby’s spot has been completely blown up. That’s what happens when Bon Appetit puts an under-the-radar gem like this on their 10 Best New restaurants in America list for 2012. And now that Bon Appetit (and everyone else for that matter) has officially put Battersby on blast, the restaurant […]

  2. Brucie

    Brucie

    234 Court St., Brooklyn, NY 11201

    It’s only been a year since we first wrote about Brucie, a quaint little restaurant in Cobble Hill that reminded us of having home cooked meals from a fictional Italian grandmother in Brooklyn. Since last year’s review, we’ve found ourselves coming back here quite a bit, and we’ve gotta say – grandma’s picked up some […]

  3. Take Root

    Take Root

    187 Sackett St., Brooklyn, NY 11231

    After finding out Take Root, a restaurant we’d never heard of before, was the destination for a friend’s dinner party recently, we checked out their website as one does in that situation. Whoa. They call themselves a “noshery and yoga room?” Much love for the word noshery, that’s kind of genius. But, a restaurant AND […]

  4. Allswell
    8.3

    Allswell

    124 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11211

    In life, there are inevitably times when we’ve all been a little overexcited. Like when you were a kid on Halloween and you’d come home and eat your candy so fast that you’d throw up everywhere. Or the first day of college spring break, when you’d finally get to Panama City and then you’d throw […]

  5. Chuko
    8.3

    Chuko

    552 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238

    Damn we love ramen, and we’re not snobs about it either. We frequent Ippudo, Totto, and the rest of the popular spots around town as much as the next guy, but we’re also not ashamed to add water and eat that sh*t out of a styrofoam cup either. How else do you think we can […]

  6. Tanoreen
    8.2

    Tanoreen

    7523 3rd Ave., Bay Ridge, NY 11209

    Damn. People really love Tanoreen. And I mean loooove it. You know how I can tell? I actually know people that have been there, and it’s in Bay Ridge. Not too long ago, Kim Kardashian could have been handing out free lottery tickets and Chipwiches from a truck in Bay Ridge and I still probably […]

  7. Nightingale 9
    8.2

    Nightingale 9

    345 Smith St., Brooklyn, NY 11231

    Need another restaurant in Brooklyn for your Hit List? Didn’t think so. But we’ve got one for you anyway, and you should pay attention. Nightingale 9 is excellent. Having been the beneficiaries of a bunch of good press when they opened in February, we had heard plenty about Nightingale 9 and their Vietnamese street food […]

  8. Old School Brooklyn
    8.2

    Old School Brooklyn

    520 Court St., Brooklyn, NY 11231

    Honestly, I don’t know how to write this review without acknowledging the fact that Old School Brooklyn might be the absolute worst name for a restaurant ever. It feels like the work of some budget marketing agency that uses the word “millenials” on a regular basis. Or maybe it’s exactly the opposite of that. Maybe […]

  9. DO OR DINE, Brooklyn, NY
    8.2

    Do Or Dine

    1108 Bedford Avenue, Bedford-Stuyvesant, NY 11216

    We had a pretty good feeling that Do Or Dine would be our kind of place. Just look at how the owner wears his hat, and how much they use the term “bad ass” on their social networks. It’s clear that these guys don’t take themselves too seriously, and it’s also clear that they’re extremely […]

  10. Traif
    8.2

    Traif

    229 S. 4th St., Brooklyn, NY 11211

    Traif is awesome. It’s exactly the kind of restaurant we enjoy hanging out at, and would happily set up shop here permanently if we weren’t constantly running around trying new places. Infatuation Nation was in our ear about this one, and, as usual, the good people who email and tweet at us came through with […]
