Arguably the bowling, concert be venue, and perhaps fried chicken in all of NYC. Just go to the Brooklyn Bowl already.
New York, NY
A teensy-tiny space serving up Counter Culture coffee. Go for a sit-down brunch or grab a pastry to go. Pains au chocolat are huge, and a maple syrup-bacon scone is dangerously decadent.
The brunch here is great. Donut French toast, biscuits with sausage gravy, and burger with a fried egg are all good choices.
OYSTERS, OYSTERS and MORE OYSTERS! And at $1 a piece, Maison Premiere's Oyster Happy Hour is one of the best bargains in the city!

Hands down the best bar in Brooklyn. I've been coming to LL for a couple years, and have always had a great time. Service, drinks and music are always top shelf.
66 N 6th St, Brooklyn
I'm assuming this place is an ironic tribute to the overrated Bowery Ballroom. I only went here to see this really great underground band that you've probably never heard of. I…
83 N 7th St, Brooklyn
D.O.C. is serious about showing you a good time for not so much money. With rustic little tables outside on their small patio, serious bartenders who know their wine, and delicious…
168 Marcy Ave, Brooklyn
New York's self-proclaimed metal mecca, Duff's is a loner in a part of Greenpoint still known primarily for its greasy takeout. The shadows of the elevated J-M-Z line make an…
Achilles Heel. Lovely little corner of the universe Achilles Heel is Andrew Tarlow's sea shanty by the East River with corpse revivers, oysters and beers.… read more
The Vanderbilt. The Vanderbilt lets local Brooklynites have a great place to pick up a whiskey and a great plate of food. I highly recommend anything with their housemade charcuterie.… read more
