Dining Recs for Brooklyn

Hi there, travelling to Brooklyn in early/mid 2014 in a group of 4. Yes, I like to plan ahead. I'm looking for recommendations under a couple of headings. Bearing in mind that establishments serving craft beer get double points, where are the best places in Brooklyn to eat...

BBQ?
Japanese?
Pizza?
Burgers/ Wings/ Fries?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

  1. Park Slope's full of great places with food and craft beer.

    Pork Slope: http://www.porkslopebrooklyn.com/
    Alchemy: http://alchemybrooklyn.com/
    Sidecar: http://www.sidecarbrooklyn.com/

    There's also Alma/b61 in Red Hook: http://almarestaurant.com/index.php/a...
    I usually just go there for the bar, but Alma's food's good too.

    Those are a few. Brooklyn's big, so if you're around a specific neighborhood, I could narrow it down for you.

      Thanks for the reply. (Likely to be) staying in Marriott Brooklyn Bridge if that narrows it down?

        Easy walk from Marriot BB are (1) Noodle Pudding and (2) Henry's End. Noodle Pudding is modern Italian, no sign, no reservations, no credit cards (at least as of my last visit). Henry's End specializes in game.

        Both are located on Henry Street, about 5 minutes walk from the Marriot. BTW, from the BB Marriot, consider walking across the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhatten on a nice morning!

          Don't forget Jack the Horse and Henry Street Ale House. The former for dinner, the latter in case you have to wait at any of the other nearby options. (which you will, most likely).

            Oh yeah. If you're staying in Dumbo, you can just walk around and get into some great stuff.

          1. Based on where you are staying, best Japanese is Hibino. Best Pizza is Juliana's. No decent BBQ in the immediate area. Burgers and wings are everywhere. Plenty of discussions on older threads. Best beer selection in the area is at Brazen Head and Pete's IMO.

              Thanks for this! I'll have a look at some older threads. I'm struggling with the anticipation with regard to the craft beer scene!

                I know the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott isn't in Williamsburg, but if you're looking for good craft beer I'd add Barcade, Spuyten Duyvil, Fette Sau (BBQ place across the street from Spuyten Duyvil owned by the same people with it's own craft beer selection), and The Gutter (if you're in the mood for some bowling), all in Williamsburg to your list. Also, Torst in nearby Greenpoint is a must. Two craft beer bars in Park Slope that my beer-loving husband enjoys are 4th Avenue Pub and Mission Dolores.
