date at Freebird Books & Goods in Red Hook. Any recos?
Maybe your date already took place, but Ferdinando's on Union is atmospheric time-warp Italian, Petite Crevette (as mentioned) has great seafood, Alma is upscale Mexican with some lovely roof seating (reservations a must on weekends). Not much else is standout. unless you cross the BQE What's "Goods"? And btw, that stretch of Columbia Street is NOT near the main drag of Red Hook on Van Brunt--closer to Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens.
