You probably aren’t going to travel for 68 Jay Street Bar, but if you live or work in the area, it should be one of your go-to spots for a casual drink. It’s a little space on a corner near the waterfront in Dumbo, and it feels sort of like someone’s living room. There aren’t many actual chairs, but there are plenty of stools and padded benches along the walls.

Celestine feels like a casual neighborhood restaurant, but this Mediterranean spot is on the water in Dumbo and has excellent views.
Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
Gran Electrica serves simple, excellent Mexican food and creative cocktails. It also has a great back patio.
