Dressler, Locande Verde, Peasant, Saul or The Grocery


Boyfriend's B'day dinner with my 19 year old son and his 19 year old daughter. We love restaurants like Marc Forgione, Vinegar Hill and Colonie.

Your thoughts please?

  1. I think Saul and Dressler stand above most Brooklyn restaurants; I've had consistently exceptional meals there. I might steer you toward Dressler because it's a bit more of a fun/hip atmosphere for the 19 yo's.

      We're going to go to Dressler- I've been hearing great things about it. Thanks for your quick response.

    2. I'd go for The Vanderbilt over Saul and Grocery. Food is fantastic and much more casual/open atmosphere.
