  1. Dyker is a pretty quiet area restaurantwise -

    The cafe run by the Royal Crown people - 14th Ave between 63-64 looks nice but I dont know whether it qualifies as a dinner spot and how late they are open.

    There is a place called Meze at 66th and 13th - but Ive not been, not sure how it stacks up.

    Casa Calimari 65th and Fort Ham, across from Three Guys - again Ive never been but it gets some good reviews here for its seafood salads.

    If I were doing this, I would head for Tanoreen on 3rd Avenue
    (there are great nearby displays in Bay Ridge down by Colonial Road and Narrows too), say in 70s, or to Chinatown (the newly opened Pacifica, upstairs at 55th and 8th sounds like fun and is a quick run from Dyker Hts.

      "Casa Calimari 65th and Fort Ham, across from Three Guys"

      I believe that's "Rocco's Calimari" or something similar, unless it has recently changed hands. Sietsema likes to rave about it. It seems fine - cheap, cheery, and fun.

        sorry you are right its Roccos, I blew it.

    2. Spartan Souvlaki on 68th and 8th.
