dinner near Bell House/Smith and 9 stop

Going to a show at the Bell House and hoping to eat as close to it and or the subway stop (mostly because of the rain and that i haven't explored this side of carroll gardens much). anything good past 4th place?

    Your better off going one stop further to 4th Ave, and having dinner at Bar Tano, @ 3rd Ave and 9th St. Great room, good cocktails, decent small plate Italian food.

    There's nothing nearby if you get off at Smith 9th (unless you count a hotdog vendor at Lowe's).

    Bar Tano
    457 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215

      I second that. Bar Tano is good and pretty much all that is around there. you can get a bunch of small plates that fill you plenty and its a pretty good price

        3rd...ate at Bar Tano when i went to the Bell House in June...not only was the food excellent and cheap, but got to eat right next to the musicians....

          fourth...and i think you're actually closer to the bell house there.

            maybe Bar Tano is good for dinner, but the food and service at brunch today left a lot to be desired. An aloof hostess/waitress who was clueless about the menu, a poorly made cocktail, tepid coffee and so-so egg dishes added up to a pretty mediocre experience. I won't be back.

        Buttermilk Channel is very close to that stop. Frankie's is walkable. There is also an Italian / Brick-oven pizza on Court even closer which I can't recall the name of.

            That's it! I've never been, but I see positive reviews from time to time.

        Another vote for Bar Tano.

        As someone else mentioned, the 4th Ave/9th St stop is closer to The Bell House than the Smith/9th Stop, but it's only a 10 minute walk (albeit a not nice and slightly scary one) from the restaurants on lower Court to TBH. Buttermilk Channel and Frankie's 457 are close, as are South Brooklyn Pizza and Vinny's.
