Husband and I will be escaping the kids and need suggestions for a gastronomic day. He's a pescetarian and I'm a vegetarian. Open to any cuisine, any price point. Our radius is anywhere between Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope. TIA!!

      Hi noya,

      At first, thought you meant subways!

      Ciao,

      Glendale is hungry...

    2. Breakfast:

      Muffins & Coffee at Blue Sky Bakery

      Lunch or Dinner:

      The River Cafe (big $$, but also the greatest view in NYC)

      Noodle Pudding

      Convivium Osteria

      Brooklyn Fare (Lunch)

      The Grocery

      Saul

      Vinegar Hill House

      Rose Water (also good for brunch if it's the weekend)

      Blue Ribbon Brasserie

      Chestnut

      Stone Park Cafe

      (normally I'd add Henry's End & Applewood, but I'm not so sure either'd be the best choice for a vegetarian...)

      Some of the above, of course, only have veggie appetizers, but any would be happy to make entree portions of them, I'm sure (or just order a bunch of veggie apps and dine tapas-style)

      2. Colonie. Really excellent, seasonal food and killer cocktails and desserts. For a quick snack: Catania. Also Van Horn (PLT sandwich!), Brucie, Buttermilk Channel (they have a vegetarian menu); Smith Canteen (quick lunch/snack); Culture (frozen yogurt in interesting flavors); second Saul (for dinner), and Clover Club (drinks).
