I just moved to Ocean Avenue right along Prospect Park...Since I'm not yet familiar with the area (and am sometimes hesitant to try a place that hasn't been recommended) I was wondering if you guys could suggest some good food in the area...I'm not picky, I like just about everything!!
I live around the corner from you on Parkside Avenue between Flatbush and Bedford. I hate to tell you this, but the local pickings are extremely slim. One bright spot is Danny & Pepper's Jerk which is at 771 Flatbush and which just got raves from a bunch of Outer Boroughs who had a jerk taste. The roti at the Roti Shack (corner of Clarkson and Flatbush) is totally fine. Mike's International (Flatbush between Lincoln and Maple) is not bad Caribbean food. Otherwise, head for Coney Island Avenue (see a lot of posts here on what's around as you head south towards the shore), Di Fara's pizza on Ave J and E. 17th St. (the best pizza in NYC bar none), or up to Park Slope, Prospect Heights, etc.
