Near the Brooklyn Museum of Art

I'm looking for a great lunch near the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

    1. So are a million other folks, all of whom have been given suggestions here in multiple threads. Try searching the board with the word museum, I imagine you will get a number of good ideas. And I hope you enjoy your visit to my neighborhood!

        Tom's diner on Washington Avenue. Its been talked about on the boards here.

        1. re: BMartin

          agree with buttertart that it's a topic well-covered, and hasn't changed in the past year
          (my personal favorite is The Islands on Washington for jerk lamb)

          The Islands
          803 Washington Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238

        2. re: buttertart

          Can't you just be helpful? The Brooklyn Museum is walking distance to Park Slope. Tons of great eats. Search that term.

          1. re: missbuilding

            The museum is a 30 minute walk from most of the good Park Slope places, which is not going to be pleasant (so much for "helpful", sheesh) in the middle of winter. Take the bus from across Eastern Pkwy to Union St/Seventh Ave or Union St/Fifth Ave if you want to expand to that nabe.

            A search of the board will give the OP everything she needs...which makes it the best and most helpful advice.

            1. re: missbuilding

              ? I said search the term "museum" on this board, would seem to yield the most germane results. I don't think I was being particularly unhelpful, but there are scads and oodles of threads on this very topic, why reinvent the wheel?

              1. re: buttertart

                Searching is good and I always try that first, but the speed with which restaurants open and close, and go up- and downhill, there's always new information out there.

                1. re: efdee

                  True enough, but within the immediate area which is what I expect was wanted, not too much of note has changed since the last such request (I live within spitting distance of the museum and am all over the neighborhood on foot). Correct me if I'm missing something.

                  1. re: efdee

                    This question gets asked every couple of weeks probably. I agree with Pitu and buttertart - there is no intention to discourage anyone from chiming in with specific or new recommendations, only to get the OP to the info they need quickly and easily.

            2. I would walk to Grand Army Plaza and then down Vanderbilt Avenue. Choices range from French and Italian to 'soul food'. I don't go there often so I cannot really recommend so search the boards, but I have not had a bad meal anywhere there. The restaurant in the museum was good too.
