our suggestions

  1. Vinegar Hill House

    Vinegar Hill House

    72 Hudson Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11201

    One of our favorite restaurants that is 100% worth the trip to DUMBO.

  2. Roberta's


    261 Moore St., Brooklyn, NY 11206

    It’s about time we got to Roberta’s. It is, after all, a ridiculously cool restaurant run by former musicians with a radio station in the back. But for about two years, I thought this was a soul food destination in a part of Brooklyn that I also thought was where the airport was. I should […]

  3. Marlow and Sons

    Marlow & Sons

    81 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11211

    A funky oyster bar that’s relatively small in size but big on personality. Also, the food is great. Mark this down as an Infatuation favorite.

  4. Shake Shack

    Shake Shack

    Madison Square Park, Flatiron, NY 10010

    I once saw a man at Shake Shack, dressed in a suit and setting a formal table. On the small metal table he placed a white tablecloth, fine silverware, a candle, and some flowers. For a moment, I was overcome with joy at the beautiful event that was about to unfold before me…this man was about to propose to a burger.

  5. Fette Sau

    Fette Sau

    354 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11211

    Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new favorite BBQ spot. Situated inside what used to be an old auto body shop, this gutted garage is raging every night of the week.

  6. Pure Food And WIne

    Pure Food And Wine

    54 Irving Place, Gramercy, NY 10003

    You obviously know by now that we’re not vegetarians. At times, this site feels like little more than a lengthy discussion about skirt steak and pork parts. Why then, are we giving so much love to a restaurant serving only raw food? Because while we may not be vegetarians, we are devoted hedonists, and Pure Food and Wine is all about pleasure.

  7. The Grocery

    The Grocery

    288 Smith St., Brooklyn, NY 11231

    Even in an age of conceptual gimmicks and celebrity chefs, there’s still room for the little guys who give good kitchen. Most have been driven out of town. Not The Grocery. Carroll Gardens is a hotbed for culinary buzz and new restaurants these days. It’s filled with a plethora of Infatuation approved destinations like Prime […]

  8. Maison Premiere

    Maison Premiere

    298 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211

    Either we’ve aged into silver haired, 30-something hipsters overnight or Williamsburg is just more on our wavelength lately than Manhattan. As you’re well aware, we love drinking almost as much as eating and right now, there’s no better place to find our two beloved pastimes working together in sweet harmony than The Burg. Marlow & […]

  9. ThePines

    The Pines

    284 3rd Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11215

    Don’t get too excited – this restaurant has nothing to do with The Pines of Fire Island. Keep that in mind before you decide to show up in a speedo looking for a party. The Pines of Gowanus is actually a new restaurant from the team behind Littleneck, the beloved clam shack just a few […]

  10. Bowens Island Restaurant1

    Bowen’s Island Restaurant

    1870 Bowens Island Rd, Charleston, SC 29412

    This past weekend, I found myself in Charleston, South Carolina for a bachelor party. Unfortunately for Immaculate (and my health), this trip was centered around debauchery, not of the culinary type. Although we sampled Bud Lights at pretty much every bar downtown, our crew of 14 wasn’t exactly presentable enough for the likes of Husk […]
