Place to eat near Old Stone House, Brooklyn?
We're planning to go to a concert at the Old Stone House (on 3rd St. between 4th & 5th Aves.) tomorrow (Sunday) and would like to eat dinner afterward. My friend has a bad leg, so we'd like a place very close by. Not expensive (not more than $25. p.p., not including drinks or tax) and can be American or ethnic, preferably not too spicy or exotic. We like Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, etc.
Thanks a lot.
Yeah, I think $25 pp rules out places like Stone Park and Blue Ribbon. Pork Slope is very tasty food, but it's a little "junky." Whenever I go there I usually feel like I've just eaten an entire pound of potato chips. Though I must admit, their Irish Nachos are a stroke of genius. Get the small, not the large. Seriously. I don't care how hungry you think you are.
People don't mention it very often, but AOC Bistro is pretty nice (it's on 5th ave and Garfield, 1 block north of 1st st). It's nothing super special, but at your price point it is certainly "pretty good." We usually go there and cobble together a meal from apps, oysters, mussels, or something like that. Their few pastas are also moderately priced. The place has a nice vibe. We usually sit at the bar.
