Yes, the food is fantastic. But it's the edgy location that keeps the hipsters coming this sister restaurant to Park Slope's Bar Toto. Brunch is amazing, but I like coming for dinner and drinks more.
I love Union Market in Park Slope--and now Cobble Hill has one to call its own. The prepared food is fantastic if pricey, but worth it for a treat. It's right down the street from Trader Joes--which is pretty brave--but I think it'll find it's own niche.
Pino's is our go-to place for ordering in pizza--which tells you a lot, since there are quite a few options in Park Slope and this is the one we choose time and time again. Try a grandma slice (it's great). We also love their baked ziti.
Sweet little spot for a quick cup of coffee and a divine little pastry. Their petite cakes are perfect for one--but I love to use them as mini-birthday cakes.
I really like Perch, but I feel like they can do better. It's very hit or miss--an egg sandwich I order last time was great, but the time before it was awful. They do a great job catering to kids (my son LOVES hot dog face), which is why we go back.
Dr. Veca is very popular--so much so, when I was pregnant I couldn't get an appointment as a new pregnant patient and had to go elsewhere. Later, after giving birth, I went to her for follow up and general gynecological care and found her to be very competent if a little bit cold. I recommend her and her practice.
I LOVE Song's menu--creative Thai in a stylish setting at excellent prices. What's not to like? Well, I'll tell you...the food. I've ordered in several time, and each time I've been really let down. The worst Pad Thai I've ever had. And other dishes that were just off.
I like Barrio. But I don't LOVE Barrio, though--even though I really want to. The food is better than average Mexican, often with an unexpected twist. But the best part about the restaurant is the outdoor space overlooking 7th Avenue. All it all, good not great.
My son attended a birthday party hosted by Carmelo the Science Fellow, and I have to say, I was impressed. He strikes the perfect balance between educational and gross--which, if you have a boy, you know is a good thing. He's hilarious!!
I LOVE New Orleans so it was a treat to find this place while strolling Atlantic Avenue. The food is great (especially if you love Cajun and Creole cuisine) and the vibe is classic Nola--laid back and a little decadent.
