Suggestions for an anniversary dinner in Brooklyn

Our sixth anniversary is coming up and I'd love to make a reservation somewhere new and special. The last meal I really loved in Brooklyn was a Grocery.

  1. Applewood in Park Slope is the best place I've eaten in the borough since I moved here a year ago. It's a nice, cozy restaurant that my wife and I went to for our anniversary. But it's not super upscale or fine dining, if that's what you're looking for. Some info that would help: cuisine, price range, atmosphere, neighborhoods. Good luck!

    501 11th St, Brooklyn, NY 11215

    1. Dressler (Williamsburg)
      Saul (Cobble Hill)
      Breukelen (Cobble Hill)
      The Good Fork (Red Hook)
      Al di La (Park Slope)
      Traif (Williamsburg) - less formal, but phenomenal food
      Marlow and Sons (Williamsburg)

      Hear Stone Park is good, but have never been.

        I would add Convivium Osteria (Park Slope). Not new, but definitely special.

          VINEGAR HILL HOUSE -- awesome, categorically!

        3. Locanda Vini e Olii is pretty special. A former old time Pharmacy on a residential street in Clinton Hill serving excellent Tuscan food. No longer new but certainly distinctive. Also at a higher price point, The River Café is as special occasion place in Brooklyn as you can get. Super views, especially if you can reserve a window seat, and great service and very good food.
