Dinner in Cobble Hill

jeeg Jan 26, 2011 12:04 PM

We're meeting people for drinks in Cobble Hill and wanted to go somewhere with good food for dinner afterwards within walking distance. I dont care if its causal or more formal as long as the food is good. Any suggestions?

    One of the very best restaurants in the area is just one block west, on Court Street and Baltic: Brucie.

      I will absolutely agree with Brucie, it's me+wife's favorite restaurant in the neighborhood and we eat there or take out every week.

      For Japanese/Sushi, Hibino is the best and most interesting. Prime Meats is great for just that. Lucali's is the best pizza but be prepared for a long wait at normal dinner time.

      Chestnut is a great option for well made New American. It's only a few blocks from Clover Club. Nice ambiance, well priced for food of that quality. Unlike a number of other places mentioned on this thread, you can actually get a reservation.

        What do you consider walking distance especially in this weather? The suggestions so far are a hike. You can walk but if its cold and slippery, it will feel like forever. I'll suggest Sue Perrete for french, Char for fancy bar food or Seersucker for Southern though the last one is a bit further.

          I think my favorite in the hood is Prime Meats on Court. There really are many options in that area. Sam's for a one of a kind pizza experience, Mile's End, Buttermilk channel, Lucali's...
