Top 10 Places to Eat and Drink in Brooklyn
1) Belli Osteria
860 Fulton St., Brooklyn NY 11238
A low key Italian hole in the wall that makes their own pasta and breads every morning for the day. The food is fresh and the sangrias will wash away all pains of moving.
2) Porto Viejo
564 Grand Ave, Brooklyn NY 11238
Once a lunch stand for the local construction workers in the area, this now Dominican restaurant houses some of the best cuisines from the island. You will surely be relaxed in the sultry ambiance and sweetness of the staff.
899 Bergen St, Brooklyn NY 11238
This cool modern “lunch table” eatery borrows the ideas of Smorgasburg and brings it indoors at a smaller scale. With choices from lumpia to amazing barbeques and much more. You will definitely enjoy yourself. Kick back, eat and bust out a board game supplied by the establishment and have fun!
4) Manhattanville Coffee
167 Rogers Ave, Brooklyn NY 11216
Okay, so you moved in the morning? Well, stop by this large and comfy coffee shop for a tea refreshment and a muffin that you will definitely dive into.
5) Bearded Lady
686 Washington Ave, Brooklyn NY 11238
If you’re like me, you enjoy a good liquid meal =) Well, this 50’s inspired bar will not disappoint! The cocktails here are barebone the best! If you absolutely need to have solids…their hotdogs are the ticket!!!
6) Ample Hill Creamery
623 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn NY 11238
You need more of a creamery to soothe the aches of lifting all that furniture? You MUST hit up Ample Hill! Don’t be in a rush as this place typically has a line…BUT IT’S WORTH IT!!! If you have calories to spare try their Ooey Gooey!
If you have decided to move into one of our Prospect Park South Locations, you might want to check out one of these gems:
Prospect Park Breeze Hill
East Drive at Lincoln Rd. Brooklyn NY 11225
This is a must for any New Yorker! But if you are living in the Prospect Park South area, it’s even more pertinent for you to visit. Smorgasburg in the park happens every Sunday where a ton of popular restaurants take their business in a food truck and line them up in a park.
Grab a picnic blanket and make a day of it…you won’t regret it!
8) The Farm On Adderly
1108 Cortelyou Rd., Brooklyn NY 11218
Located on the hipstreet of Cortelyou, this farm to plate restaurant will make anyone want only fresh food! Try their brunches, you will leave full and possibly staggering.
9) Purple Yam
1314 Cortelyou Rd., Brooklyn NY 11226
Again on Cortelyou Road, this place has a fun take on Asian cuisine with playful ideas more specifically in Filipino dishes.
905 Church Ave., Brooklyn NY 11218
This is such a cool place with probably some of the best pizza (not like the staple $1 slices...but still just as good). The drinks are not to scoff at either. Craft cocktails with creativity make it a great place to quench your thirst!
