IN THE SLOPE WITH A CAR

Hey folks, I live in the slope and can go to dinner anywhere that's a 30 minute drive or less. Where should I go?

    Piattini in Bay Ridge is an overlooked gem. They specialize in small plates, as suggested by the restaurant's name, and southern Italian cooking. Very authentic, very high quality. I also like the Good Fork in Red Hook - you can combine that with a drive to one of the piers to get a nice look at the harbor after dinner.

      There are alot of options, depends on what type of food and environment you are interested in. Just a few options could include:

      Brooklyn's Chinatown - Metro Cafe is good
      Middle Eastern in Bay Ridge - Tanoreen is an option
      Dresslers in Williamsburg
      Any of the excellent pizza options in Brooklyn - Di Faras, Lucalis, Motorino ... there are more.

      There are too many possibilities to list, in too many neighborhoods worth exploring

        FYI-Tanoreen is going on vacation in August. I think they'll be closed 8/23-9/2. Double check. I may have the dates wrong. Also Sally & George (another good option) is also going on vacation.

        BTW, I'd leave the car home and just take the R train (if it's running) or the B63. Parking is just as bad as Park Slope.
