      on that link,Cube 63 & Miriam are no longer open on Court.
      Bien Cuit on Smith is great for breakfast/light lunch and not that far. Chop Chop has a decent lunch bar right next to Bien Cuit. Damascus & Sahadi on Atlantic have good light lunch options if you like Middle Eastern food.
      Otherwise, just walk south on Smith or Court Streets--there are lots of restaurants.

    2. Fascati Best pizza by the slice in the area. Also Govinda's Lunch Club Hare Krishna Temple - 305 Schermerhorn Street. Atlantic and court street have a bunch of places. Mile end is close enough.

      1. Junior's on Flatbush Ave for a nice Pastrami sammich.
        Tripoli on Atlantic Ave for authentic Syrian/Lebanese.

          OP should be aware that Lucali is not open for lunch, only dinner. Also, not quick as there is a long wait.

        2. The restaurant in the Marriott is fine for breakfast. For a quick lunch I noted that a Hanco's (Americanized, but good Banh Mi) was open on Montague St. Also Jack the Horse Tavern a few blocks away on Hicks St is worth a visit. And there is Theresa's: decent Polish food and soups also on Montague St. They serve a good breakfast as well.

            Junior's also has a nice breakfast!!!

            1. re: Motosport

              and Junior's for a late night dessert. Try the strawberry cheese pie and mile high sundae!!!
              Can you tell that I like Junior's??

            2. re: bobjbkln

              I think Jack the Horse is not open for lunch. (At least, it didn't used to be.)

            3. If you exit the Marriott and continue north, crossing the small park which contains the Supreme Court building and Borough Hall, you will come to Montegue Street. It is mostly a wasteland, but very close to the Marriott is Garden of Eden, a gourmet grocery with excellent sandwiches and salad bar. Also, further down Montegue is Heights Cafe which is reliable, if somewhat unexciting. Don't forget to walk the the end of Montegue Street for the famous Promenade and awesome view of the lights of Manhatten and the Statute of Liberty.

                I work in the area and recently discovered Oh My Pasta, definitely a cut above the more mundane restaurants along Montague. They specialize in house-made pasta and while it is not amazing, it's definitely quite good. Nice, clean, modern atmosphere. Across the street is Armando's, truly old school Italian and very good!

              2. Are there any places for good coffee or bagels within walking distance of the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott?

                  La Bagel Delight on Court Street and Livingston, or Mile End on Hoyt St. is a bit further but worth the trip.

                  1. re: DrSouthBay

                    Best coffee in the area, by a healthy margin, is at Cafe Pedlar on Court St at Warren.

                    Bagels, there is more diverse opinion but I like Court Street Bagels (fka Bagel World) on Court by Boerum.

                    Those two are within a block of each other, a 10-15 minute walk from the Marriott. The bagel place also has good coffee, my usual everyday type of cup, while Pedlar has Stumptown, excellent espresso drinks, etc.

                    I will add that if you like Dunkin Donuts coffee, your closest are on Court between Joralemon and Livingston (quite close to the Marriott, perhaps your closest overall option) or at the corner of Smith and Bergen.

                    Cafe Pedlar
                    210 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

                    Court Street Bagels
                    181 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

                    Dunkin' Donuts

                    1. re: cazique

                      Thanks. Cafe Pedlar was exactly what I was looking for. I will try La Bagel and Court Street.

                      1. re: DrSouthBay

                        If you're going to Pedlar for coffee (yes, the best around), skip the bagels (Court St Bagels is mediocre at best) and get an egg wrap at Nectar (I add ham & tomatoes) for 4.50. Or hook around to Ted N Honey on Clinton St for other good light breakfast options. However, don't get coffee at T&H - blaargh!

                        1. re: billyeats

                          billyeats - your tastes sound like they roughly match mine. I like Court St Bagels better than you do, but I heartily +1 on Nectar's breakfast burrito - I get mine with chorizo and on the rare occasions I indulge I am never sorry.

                          Also, I'm glad (not exactly glad, but you know) to hear I'm not the only one who thinks Ted + Honey's coffee is pretty eh - but their baked goods and lunch food are pretty good. Their sausage egg and cheese is substantial and tasty but I'd rather have 1 1/2 Nectar wraps. If there was any other coffee to the west of Court St (I live between Court and Clinton), I'd go to T+H a lot less... but if you're going that direction and don't feel like going to two places, what else to do?

                  2. There is a Five Guys (tasty In&Out-style burgers; eat-in or take-out) at both MetroTech Center which is just a hop away from the hotel, and Montague St. If you head over to Court Street, beeline it to Queen which is arguably one of the best and most authentic old-school Italian restaurants in Brooklyn. If you cross Atlantic and stay on Court, check out Van Horn for high-end, but low-brow southern-inflected sandwiches including an excellent fried chicken sandwich and grilled pimento cheese, etc.

                      While delicious, I wouldn't count Queen as a quick and light lunch, it's a wait-service white table cloth restaurant.
