Any Good Places to Eat in North Brooklyn (besides Northside)?

I pass by a lot of pint sized restauarants in the North
Brooklyn area. Are any of them any good?
Hi, Joe, and welcome to chowhound.
Why not Northside restaurant? If, as I suspect, it's
because you already know it, how about a few words
about the place for those who've never been? Also,
perhaps you've tried a few other places thereabouts
that haven't panned out...any reports at all for us?
We're here to exchange info, so cough some up!

You're right Jim, it's "besides Northside" because I
already know it. I like Northside - it's an
interesting setting and the specials are usually
pretty good (e.g pasta with shrimp and broccoli rabe
or escarole, ostrich!, buffalo!). And Brooklyn lager
on tap is a plus. I really haven't found anything else
in the immediate area; 15 blocks or so down is Giando
which is the poor man's River Cafe and well worth
trying. I don't like Bamonte's or Frost. Cono's on
graham is pretty good. I'm all ears to other
