    1

    Cocktail

    eleven dollar cocktails, properly made. if isiah is behind the bar, then you are in luck. there's a garden in the back. avoid on friday or saturdays. cash only.

  • Black Mountain Wine House

    2

    Wine Bar

    with its dim lighting and a tiny woodburning stove in the back, it feels a bit like a journey into civil war america. relaxed, comfortable fare done with flair.

  • The Brooklyn Inn

    3

    Bar

    salty dogs work the bar but run a tight ship. no fancy cocktails here. excellent juke box. almost every one in this bar deems themselves a writer or an actor.

  • Cafe Pedlar

    4

    Coffee Shop

    if concerned about the quality of your espresso drink, then you should go here. you'll encounter 28 strollers inside, but the cortados are the best in the area.

  • Brucie

    5

    Italian

    they are deceptively adept at articulating texture and flavor through their vibrant yet 'simple' dishes. really good craft. warm environment though a bit noisy.

  • Hibino

    6

    Japanese

    a mom and pop kind of place, run by sons and daughters. elegant, simple, hearty. they've been a mainstay in the neighborhood for some time now. deservedly so.

  • The Long Island Bar

    7

    Cocktail

    you go here for the décor and a well-made cocktail, and perhaps some finger food. they're good at that. don't stay long because it can get annoyingly crowded.

  • La Cigogne

    8

    French

    an unpretentious space to satisfy your cravings for spätzle. made by hand each day, the menu always features three or four variations. there's a fireplace too.

  • Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain

    9

    Ice Cream

    on the list because they stand out for doing something different: an old fashion soda parlor. competes with chocolate room on court street for my affection.

  • Gowanus Yacht Club

    10

    Beer Garden

    when jerry bagel was the owner, his colorful staff kept customers happy and provocatively entertained on summer nights. he died and with it a bit of the vibe.

  • Black Gold Brooklyn

    11

    Record Shop

    records, taxidermy, coffee. sommer is often behind the counter. she's a bona fide, hard-working, sweet-natured DIY-punk jersey girl. drip coffee only.

  • Frankies 457 Spuntino

    12

    Italian

    there's overlap between prime meats and frankies: same owners, similar farmer chic modus operandi, but only frankies excels. they've stayed true to their roots.

  • La Slowteria

    13

    Mexican

    chef hugo creates exquisite high-end mexican fare, humbly served in a space that evokes a gulf coast palapa. fun and relaxed. garden in the back.

  • Petite Crevette

    14

    Seafood

    provençal cuisine. chef & owner is a volatile croat who once threw a lobster at an obnoxious customer. cash only, excellent stews, seafood, cosy atmosphere.

  • Jalopy Tavern

    15

    Bar

    a knee-slapping, banjo picking kind of establishment. their mint juleps are pretty decent, i must say.
