Must-tries we haven't tried in bococa/red hook/park slope/fort greene area?

Hi all--so my brother in law is in from london, we were able to score a babysitter for saturday night for a few hours, and are looking to go out for a nice, baby-free meal to celebrate his visit...nearbyish, to make the most of our time.

but, we are thinking, let's do something new for us. there are definitely lots of places we haven't been to, and of course some new openings (new for us=last few years, sadly). any recommendations?

we love, but have already been to seersucker, lucali, frankie's, buttermilk (frankie's is a bit of a trusty standby as far as we're concerned--always delicious).

any places we need to get our collective a**es to? we are pretty open re: cuisine, although we just had lucali, so no pizza.

    1. I'd rec No. 7 in Ft. Greene - not terribly new I know- but one of the more creative spots in the area foodwise and very good cocktails.

      No. 7
      7 Greene Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238

      1. Flatbush Farm
        Vinegar Hill House

        And, if you like game/meat, don't mind going to Northern Brooklyn Heights, and haven't been to Henry's End, go there.

        Henry's End
        44 Henry St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

        Flatbush Farm
        76 Saint Marks Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217

        Vinegar Hill House
        72 Hudson Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11201

        1. Lots of good suggestions so far. I'd add Convivium to the list.
