A Foodie's Brooklyn
Collected by Ethan Gelber
There is, of course, a LOT more food than this in Brooklyn. It's a foodie playland these days. If you have a hankering for it, it's probably to be found.

I recently learned that my suspicions were valid. While still very good, the pizza at Grimaldi's Pizzeria – a famous tourist stop in Brooklyn – just wasn't good enough to warrant the excessively long lines out front. Why? Because the pizza isn't...

Unlike Los Angeles (duh) and Chicago (surprising!), New York City doesn't have too much in the way of "authentic" Mexican food outside of Red Hook Ball Fields' local street vendors. Yes, the city is filled with tons of Latino flavor, but when it...

by Jason Lampkin “Here’s a barbecue spot that draws a diverse crowd. It’s run by two visionaries (one black, one white, I’m pleased to say) and staffed by locals. Order the beef short ribs, spicy French fries, and Boylan’s sodas.” 87 S. Elliott...

Brooklyn is full of hipster eateries, so it's no surprise to see what appears to be one more opening on Clinton Avenue, in Clinton Hill. What is surprising is just how delicious the barbecue is from a place that essentially looks like someone's...

I have to thank AFARer Barry Brown for a recommendation to al di là, a little Italian find in Park Slope. The food was exquisite. Certainly among my top American restaurant meals. Even the bread and butter exceeded expectation. The place has a...
