Heading to Clover Club on Smith St tonight - anything else nearby worth checking out?
The title of this post just about says it all, but my boyfriend and I are new to the area (we're in Park Slope, actually) and we were thinking about heading over to Clover Club for drinks. To the 'Hounds that have been already, is it a good place to grab some food, as well? If not, could we get some suggestions for a nice meal nearby? Neither of us is picky about food, but we'd prefer something casual, with an energetic vibe.
There are plenty of places with better food on Smith St. and nearby, but for a casual place with an energetic vibe (and perfectly decent food) you might want to try Bar Tabac on the corner of Smith St. and Dean St. They have some sidewalk tables too, and it looks like the weather is going to be great for sitting outside. On the downside, service is often a little slow. Another option that meets your criteria is Joya on Court St. (b/w Warren and Wyckoff) for Thai. If you feel like Italian, and slightly more upscale than Bar Tabac or Joya, try Po (Smith b/w Degraw and Sackett) or Lunetta (Smith b/w Pacific and Dean). There are lots of comments on the boards about all these places if you want to sift through for reviews/recs.
