I recently moved to 60th street near 20th ave in the most northern part of brooklyn's bensonhurst and am looking for recomendations in the area I have already eaten at Europas on 65th and 20th and found the pizza to be similar to grimaldis and almost as good , also an awesome day trip on the weekend was dim sum over on 8th ave. ANY MORE SUGGESTIONS? , I love all types of food and any recommendations would be appreciated.

  1. You've got some decent Chinese restaurants on 18th Ave, namely:
    World Tong
    6202 18th Ave
    Brooklyn, NY 11204
    Phone: (718) 236-8118
    There is a great bagel place (If it's still there) on 17th Ave and about 66 th St.
    I don't know the name of it, but there used to be a pleasant neighborhood Italian resto. on Bay Parkway(Which is 22nd Ave) and about 66-67th St.
    The main'drag' t up there is 18th Ave, so don't be afraid to do a little exploring.

    1. re: Tay

      Go to 18th Ave and hop on the B8 bus to Il Colosseo 7704 Eighteenth Avenue (between 77th & 78th streets). Consistently good Italian. We almost always go with a seafood special and are rarely disappointed. They have brick oven pizza too which makes for a great appetizer. Service is always top notch. For more traditional red sauce try Villa Fiorita 7720 18TH Ave on the same block.

      Hanna Vermicelli 7524 18TH Ave is decent, very inexpensive byob Vietnamese / Chinese. Trio Village near 73rd and 18th is Asian Fusion, reasonably priced with good basic sushi.
