    2. We don't do take out, so I can't speak to that.

      The restaurants we go to a few times a month are HENRY'S END, NOODLE PUDDING, AL DI LA AND TACI'S TURKISH. Our all time Brooklyn favorite was TEMPO.

            1. JAMES http://www.jamesrestaurantny.com/
              - Brian Calvert can seriously cook. Super friendly hostess and super friendly staff. We would like James even more if they took reservations and if they expanded their wine list.

              BUSSACO http://www.bussacobklyn.com/
              - This was a happy surprise. We love their fish & seafood dishes, which are super fresh and quite delicious. They have some very nice wines on their wine list. No wonder, the place is owned and run by a master sommelier & his artist wife. Friendly place. The fact that they take reservations might turn it into our favorite area restaurant, if the food stays consistently good. (Which, we have good reason to believe, it will.

              )

              TEMPO was our all time favorite in Brooklyn. We still miss it. Their wine list was superior to any other neigborhood restaurant in the area. In addition, the food was mostly delicious, the seating was very comfortable (which I appreciated a lot), and they took reservations, a huge plus. ( http://www.tempobrooklyn.com/home.htm )
