Cecconi’s has locations around the world, and the newest one is on the waterfront in Dumbo. The outdoor space is by far the best part of this place - if you get a spot on their awning-covered patio, you can drink something from their Negroni menu while looking at the skyline. Otherwise, Cecconi’s feels like a well-designed club restaurant - the multiple giant rooms are filled with velvet mini-sofas and chandeliers, and people here are way more dressed up than pretty much anywhere else in Brooklyn. The food is the kind of vaguely American, vaguely Italian stuff that probably won’t make you mad but is also pretty forgettable. If you want to check it out, consider doing so between 4 and 7pm, when they serve discounted drinks and appetizers.

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.
68 Jay St Bar
If you’re looking for a quiet place to drink after work Dumbo, try 68 Jay St. It’s a little spot that sort of feels like a living room.
Westville’s Dumbo spot is just as good for a quick and healthy meal as the other locations, with the added bonus of being close to the Brooklyn Bridge

The Cecil Steakhouse
The Cecil Steakhouse is a classic-feeling American restaurant that’s ideal for a special occasion dinner in Harlem
Mr. Purple is the restaurant/bar on top of Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side. It’s a good place to grab a drink with a group, but it does get busy.
