The Stone Street main drag is littered with bars and restaurants, all of which have outdoor seating areas that bleed into one another. It’s an appealing place to hang out in the area, certainly. So which of the many restaurants should you pick? Sure, the Bavaria Beer Haus will do if you want to drink hefeweizen out of a boot, and the Mexican restaurant “Mad Dog and Beans” is an option if you want to patronize a place called “Mad Dog and Beans.” But if you actually want to eat, do it at Adrienne’s Pizza Bar. The large pies are pretty good (no slices, FYI), and the inside area is pretty nice.

Circa Brewing is a beer hall and brewery in Downtown Brooklyn. The beer is decent, and it’s good for groups, but we aren’t really fans of the food.

Grimaldi's is a good spot for pizza in Coney Island. (FYI, it's cash-only, and you can't get slices here.)
