It's a bit amusing to see Manhattanites, Park Slopers and Williamsburgers come into once-feared Bed-Stuy for the local restaurant scene. Like Jack's beans, the little corner mom-and-pops are sprouting here and there across from beautiful brownstones and churches. And what's happening is delicious.
For chopped barbecue and ribs, this is the place to be. Takeout has never been better for a long night in. This sauce is so tangy and vinegary, you'll think you've died and gone to Carolina barbecue heaven. Skip the mac and go for potato salad.
I love this restaurant. Sleek and cozy at the same time, with killer wings, fish and chips, and ribs, this Filipino outpost gives Pratt students some well-priced fare to nibble on. A nice date spot with low lighting and easy-to-share dishes.
Addictive Bed-Stuy favorite Peaches is known as the spicy fried chicken spot, but fried green tomatoes, catfish, burgers and shrimp also please deliciously. Peer into the kitchen and see serious chefs frying chicken like it's an age-old, passed-down, traditional art -- at Peaches, it is.
A delightful, savory puttanesca and creamy, fatty carbonara, plus crostini with gorgonzola and sun-dried tomatoes and a wide wine menu, have made this the local Italian joint of choice.
The spacious indoors, lovely leafy backyard and savory delicious thin-crust pizza are all to love at this Napolitan pizza outpost deep in the heart of Bed-Stuy. Capocollo and proscuitto with funghi are standouts here, and daily specials include delicious fish entrees for the non-pizza eater who just tagged along for the ride.
That much-ballyhooed foie gras doughnut using a doughnut from Dough? It's fo' real. The all pork everything? Juicy deliciousness -- get on it. Jerk chicken and waffles? Hells yes! Do or Dine is a duh.
Why have I not previously stated all the ways in which I adore Clementine Bakery? Awesome owner Michelle makes these incredible crumble pies with blackberries, as well as to-die-for pumpkin cheesecake and cinnamon rolls. Many of her items are gluten-free and all are vegan. I love this place!
