When you're in Brooklyn Heights, but you need a restaurant that looks like a cafe in Williamsburg or the West Village, Chez Moi has you covered. Come here for a reasonably priced steak frites and some frog legs (if you’re feeling adventurous). It’s a good place to bring a date, and it’s a good place to convince a date that you’re the sort of person who eats frog legs. Vibes are romantic, but you could always just sit at the bar by yourself and have a burger with foie gras.

La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.
Emily not only has some of the best pizza in the city, it’s also got one of the best burgers. That means you should probably get there soon.
