Good eats and ice cream within walking distance to the Brooklyn Bridge?

Any rec's for good casual eats within walking distance of the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge? We're willing to walk even further for good ice cream....
thanks for the help.

    1. re: Geo8rge

      Jacque Torres for ice cream too! They have an ice cream shop next to the chocolate shop.

    2. I was actually suprised by how much I liked the Jacques Torres vanilla ice cream. Also very close to the bridge and delicious - Brooklyn Ice Cream factory. Blue Marble is delicious but the one on Atlantic usually has a (sometimes very long) line (the one on Court Street I have had better luck with). I don't have any non-ice cream food recs super close to the bridge. Sorry about that. If you are walking to one of the Blue Marbles anyway, though, there are lots of options in Cobble Hill...
