Living in Brooklyn Heights, we are constantly discovering new incredible culinary talents in the neighborhood. We are so lucky to have the Michelin-rated La Vara (268 Clinton St, Brooklyn) a few blocks away — don’t miss the Cochinillo — and we aren’t complaining about Cecconi’s moving into Dumbo (55 Water St, Brooklyn, +1 718 650 3900). Definitely don’t miss the salted watermelon rosé at Elsa (136 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, +1 917 882 7395). Looking for a weekday lunch spot? Hibino is the Henry Street sushi secret (333 Henry St, Brooklyn, +1 718 260 8052).

Some of our other regular spots are…

127 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn  
+1 718 855 7500

This menu is always evolving, but the chili watermelon margarita and the halibut are amazing.  The plant wall doesn’t hurt!

190 Dean St (corner of Bond St), Brooklyn
+1 718 576 3209

I highly recommend breaking the diet and having a pasta at Rucola. A wonderful place to visit in Boreum Hill for lunch or dinner.  

Noodle Pudding
38 Henry St., Brooklyn
+1 718 625 3737

I learned about Noodle Pudding from my Italian friends who rave about it. They only take cash and no reservations, but it is worth it. I LOVE their daily risotto.

Chez Moi
135 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn Heights
+1 347 227 8337

The perfect French brunch. I love the crepes and salmon eggs benedict.
