Carroll Gardens locals probably don’t want you to know about Big Tiny, an always-crowded French bistro that only takes reservations by phone. Cozy wood paneling, warm globe lights, wall-mounted bicycles, and art deco posters are the perfect setting for excellent versions of bistro classics like escargot, tartiflette, and cassoulet. And the Big Tiny burger is one of the best in the neighborhood. The thoughtful wine and beer list changes often—come here with your friends who love wine but not necessarily wine bars. It’s also a great date night spot.
