Another Flatbush culinary institution and home of rasta pasta, Footprints is an iconic Caribbean restaurant with three locations in Brooklyn. No visit is complete without sampling the penne in a creamy jerk sauce topped with shrimp or oxtail. For pescatarians, there’s also an extensive seafood selection. My personal favorites are red snapper or kingfish with bammie. The Coney Island location is a fun outpost near the boardwalk, and did I mention drinks?
