Where to eat around Atlantic/Flatbush Ave. of Brooklyn??

asdf Nov 7, 2009 12:29 PM

I recently took a new job in the Atlantic/Flatbush Ave. area, in the building of the Atlantic Terminal Mall, actually. The place feels like a culinary desert, compared to what I'm used to in Manhattan. PLEASE help me find some local places, that do take-out, and is walkable and ready in my 30 min-1 hour lunch breaks. I eat absolutely everything, and it is my preference to do a new cuisine everyday. Thank you immensely!

      Sushi, that's excellent! I can definitely do sushi 2-3 times a week. I will be searching for Taro tomorrow, thanks!

      Sidenote: Is this the Boerum Hill/Park Slope area of Brooklyn?

        You're at the intersection of Boerum Hill/Fort Greene/Downtown Brooklyn/Park Slope and Prospect Heights. Alchemy and Taro Sushi are in the very northern end of Park Slope. Stir it Up is Northeast Boerum Hill. Atlantic Center is in Southwest Fort Greene. Enjoy.

        Unfortunately, the Waterfront Ale House is quite a distance from Atlantic/Flatbush Avenues.

        I would recommend Burger 67 on Lafayette and Fulton Street. Great burgers (including veggie and turkey burgers) and a relaxed atmosphere. Mullane's is also good for salads, soups, pub food -- friendly and good service.

          Walk up Flatbush to Christies for Beef Patties & Coco Bread, plus decent Jerk Chicken and other stuff. Its between Sterling and Plaza I think. Two other places that get good reviews and are nearby are Bark, a new fancy hot dog place, and City Subs.

            I would take a walk down Atlantic. Between 3rd and 4th avenues there are a few Middle Eastern places that do take out. They don't look like much from the street, but trust me. Delicious and really cheap.

              City Sub is a quarter mile away. Their sandwiches are outstanding. There are about 20 combination sandwiches listed on their menu and they'll add various condiments like onion or sweet peppers if you ask. They can get busy at peak times but you can phone in your order in advance to beat the lines.

                It only appears to be a desert. 2-3 blocks in almost any direction will get you into a good food neighbourhood. But a 30min break is very short to get to the good places.

                All here are good suggestions. Strolling down Lafayette or Fulton in Ft Greene will get you lots of cuisines (Ethiopian, sushi, etc). Atlantic Ave is good for Middle Eastern as mentioned and there is also a pan-Asian place called Mai on the other side of the street. BKLYN Larder on Flatbush & Bergen will sort you out for lunch anytime. Just start walking!
