Sit-down appetizing restaurant in Brooklyn?

We are traveling down to Brooklyn tomorrow from Boston for a big family wedding in the evening, but were hoping to grab a nice bagel sandwich somewhere for lunch. Any ideas? Seems like most of the appetizing places are shops without seats. We're looking for something more like Barney Greengrass in the city.

  1. What part of Brooklyn? It's pretty big.

    The first place that came to mind was the Mill Basin Deli.

      Maybe something close-ish to brooklyn heights?

        It's tough on a Saturday as many places serving that type of food are closed for the sabbath.

        There is a neat place called Campbell Cheese and Grocery. Not sure if they have bagels, but they are a pretty interesting place and are very serious about their sandwich ingredients, especially their cheeses.

          Thanks for the rec...seems like all the places in the city are open on Saturdays. Oh well, we'll probably just go somewhere in the city and then head over to Brooklyn

            The area of Brooklyn you are near also houses large populations of observant orthodox and Hassidic Jews. Also, not all of the places serving that type of food in Manhattan are open Saturdays. If you were willing to travel further south in Brooklyn, you would find more options. Hope you enjoy whatever you choose!

    2. There are a lot of bagel places, but most are not very special. You could try Bagel Cafe, 200 Clinton St. at Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn Heights.

      1. What about mile end? They have bagels as part of lunch, I think.
