Atlantic Ave ArtWalk June 6, 7

Has anyone attended this in the past? I hear there's a falafel guy who rocks at this fair. Any suggestions for gland activating foods at restaurants on/near Atlantic or street food at the event?

  1. Or are you think of the Altantic Antic? That is the big Atlantic Avenue festival with great food. And it has a "schwarma guy" not falafel.

      Hmm. That's a separate event (and you're right about it being schwarma, not falafel).

      Any suggestions in the area for this weekends's event? It's an Art crawl, open studios, etc.

        Speaking of falafel, there is excellent middle eastern at Bedouin Tent, on the northeastern corner of Atlantic Avenue and Bond. Right next to it is Bacchus and Stan's Place, although I haven't had lunch or brunch there in a long time. Across the street is the wonderful Blue Marble ice cream and Betty Bakery. On that block or the next one down is Stir It Up, a Jamaican place. After you've seen the art, have a drink at Donna da Vine on the south side of Atlantic, between Bond & Hoyt, or at Deity, on the same block. Or wander down Smith Street to Sample. Search Smith Street on Chowhound to find other great local restaurants.

          Glad you mentioned it Bklynchicken. Bedouin Tent is my favorite of all of those places. I especially like the chicken ouzi (only on weekends) and the lambajin pizza. I eat there a few times a week.

            The Olive Vine cafe, newly opened on Court and Sackett has Chicken Ouzi on the menu every day, and it -rocks-, This part of Brooklyn needed a new challenge to Zaytoons, which has gone way downhill.
            They have lambajin, too. And I eat there a few times a week and this location has only been open a month!
