Brooklyn restaurants within walking distance of B'klyn. Bridge

  • 5

I am planning, when weather is warm,, to walk the B'klyn. Bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn and would appreciate rest. recs. for an early dinner. Will probably be a party of four and casually dressed. Would like ethnic and/or fun places. Any thoughts?

  1. Plenty of good Middle Eastern places on Atlantic Avenue between Court & Henry Streets. Bedouin Tent, Yemen Cafe, Tripoli....they're all within a half to 3/4's of a mile from Tillary St.

    1. If early dinner is no earlier than 5:30 or 6:00, I would suggest either Noodle Pudding (Italian- no reservations, but should be OK early midweek) oer Henry's End. Or perhaps Jack the Horse tavern. For far more casual, there should be a number of licenced vendors in Brooklyn Bridge Park (check the park's website for opening dates and name of vendors). Just keep away from the very crowded and mediocre Grimaldi's pizza.

        Listen to Bobbjbkln. All good rec's. henry's end is known for game meats, Noodle Pudding is just awesome, and Jack the Horse has tasty american fare.

      2. Agree with Noodle Pudding, Henry's End, and Jack the Horse. I also like Bread & Butter although it is hit or miss, still nice folks and a fun if uneven menu.

        In DUMBO, there is SuperFine and reBar, both of which are a lot of fun. Superfine is an American bistro with market ingredients -- limited choices, but well-executed. reBar is a gastropub with more ambitious fare spanning many cuisines -- they have a great bar and the room is very hip. I also like Ignazios right under the bridge by the water -- doesn't get a lot of love on this board due to high prices, but the pizza is very good, esp. the square, and they make a first-rate calzone.

        Stay away from Bubby's, Miso, One Front, and Pub One (and Grimaldi's as mentioned)...

        The best restaurant in this neighborhood, however, is in Vinegar Hill -- the Vinegar Hill House. This is exceptional food in an exceptional setting. They are open for brunch and dinner only. No reservations and usually a wait unless you get there at an earlier hour. Lots of press on VHH, just Google them.

          Just read on Brooklyn Heights Blog that Bread & Butter is no more.
