Brooklyn Heights Social Club is the bar at the top of 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, and it’s the closest thing you’ll find to a Meatpacking spot on this side of the East River. Drinks start around $20, you might have to get past a doorman get in, and you also might have to wait in line. Once you make it up, however, you can enjoy the view of the Brooklyn Bridge though the floor-to-ceiling windows as well as the very loud music that starts around 7pm. Just know that this place gets crowded and be sure to call ahead to make a reservation if you want to play it safe.

Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.
The Meatball Shop
A restaurant on the Lower East Side operating with the sole purpose of turning out ridiculously good meatballs and presenting you a few options in which to consume them.
The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.

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.
