Brooklyn Side of Brooklyn Bridge
I have only been to Brooklyn 2x in 50+ years and profess my ignorance. We are planning to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan and I would like to know what to expect on the other side. What would you Brooklynites suggest within walking distance of the Bridge? It would be for a weekend late lunch or early supper. I eat anything except liver.
Grimaldi's - pizza, somewhat touristy, long line to get in. Plus, here's three places for treats. Do a seach on "dumbo"
85 Water St, Brooklyn, NY 11201
66 Water St, Brooklyn, NY 11201
1 Front St, Brooklyn, NY 11201
Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory
2 Old Fulton St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

noodle pudding on a nice summer evening is a great time. excellent, excellent italian.
i also like almondine from scooter's post...and five front has a nice back garden to split a bottle of prosecco if thats yr thing.
superfine is a fun place for drinks but i dont like their food at all.
Le Petit Marche on Henry St is a good option for an early dinner too. Great French bistro-type food.
If your weekend late lunch happens to be before 3 pm (and after 11 am) on a Sunday, you might consider Jack the Horse Tavern on the corner of Hicks and Cranberry in Brooklyn Heights. It's a very decent brunch and just a short walk from the bridge. Also second the Henry's End and Noodle Pudding recs if it ends up being dinner instead of lunch (both are dinner only).
