Eating Out in Brooklyn
Are you planning a trip to Brooklyn and want to narrow down some of your restaurant options? Maybe you’re already here and aching for some New York–style pizza. Well, let our crew at Empire Rent A Car (we have a location right in Brooklyn) help you out by passing along a few top-rated restaurants you might enjoy. (Check out the full list on Fodor’s Travel.)
1. Red Hook Lobster Pound
Do you love a good lobster roll? Then you will want to check out Red Hook Lobster Pound, located in (shocker) Red Hook. They offer just about everything lobster for a casual lunch or dinner.
Fans of fresh, locally-sourced, and amazing foods will love Brooklyn Heights’ Colonie. This restaurant features daily oysters as well as delicious entrees like burgers, pork chops, and fresh veggies. They’re only open for dinner, except for Saturday and Sunday brunch.
3. Vinegar Hill House
Looking for a quaint dinner spot for date night? Check out Vinegar Hill House in Dumbo. Located along the waterfront, you will be greeted with candlelit tables, a yummy menu that changes seasonally, and tasty drinks to accompany your meal. Be prepared for a bit of a wait because part of the restaurant’s charm is its cozy setting (with around 40 tables). However, most people agree it’s worth it.
You can find a pizza place around almost every corner, but you don’t want to leave NYC without trying Roberta’s. Don’t let the exterior scare you. Inside this converted garage, you can enjoy craft, wood-fired pizzas with local ingredients. Roberta’s is open for dinner daily as well as lunch Monday through Friday and brunch on the weekends. (You may also decide to try out their delivery, but going there is part of the experience.)
