Brooklyn Neighborhoods & Restaurants - Newbie
Hi everyone - I am a Manhattanite, who embarassingly enough, hasn't spent nearly enough time in Brooklyn. I really want to learn the different neighborhoods, and I figured the best way to do that is by eating and drinking my way through! Does anyone have good recommendations for Brooklyn in the following neighborhoods? I generally love great restaurants, but don't really want to spend more than $65 per person. Any ideas? Would also love great local bars to have drinks before and after...
I lived a block south of Atlantic Avenue between Clinton and Henry for 20 years, and have grown quite fond of the middle eastern restaurants. None of them are "great," perhaps, but I think they're very good, with Waterfalls (BYO) a perennial favorite - 144 Atlantic Ave.
Across the street, the Waterfront Ale House isn't just for pub grub, their daily specials often include game meats and seafood. It's October and in honor of Oktoberfest they offer a German-themed menu all month long. Many, many beers and hard stuff to choose from. 155 Atlantic Ave.
re: John Francis
Thanks for the recomendations guys! We decided to do our first outing and hit the Brooklyn Flea and then have an early dinner at Convivium Osteria in Park Slope...the reccs above will go onto the list though! Any others are welcome too, since we are going to try and do this twice a month
