The original Fornino is in Williamsburg, but their Neapolitan-style pizzas fit in just fine in Brooklyn Heights. This is an excellent alternative to the lines at nearby Grimaldi’s and Juliana’s, and it’s also a much better option for summertime dining. When it’s nice out, there’s a big roof where you can sit and watch the sunset over Manhattan. Toppings here range from asparagus to fennel sausage and soppressata. And if you’re not in the mood for pizza, have a salad, some meatballs, or a prosciutto calzone.

Claro is a great Oaxacan-inspired restaurant that’s even better when you’re sitting in the backyard.
Despite the isolated location and slightly self-important staff, Glasserie is still a solid Greenpoint destination.
Egg has always been a staple for Williamsburg, and they take a very serious, farm-to-Chuck Taylor approach to their food. So serious that they even have their own farm outside of the city.

Pizza in a sterile Flatiron District hotel lobby just doesn’t feel like the Danny Meyer hospitality experience we’ve grown accustomed to.
For a quick and not-too-expensive sit-down meal inside Grand Central, Prova Pizzabar is worth knowing about.

Pilot is a restaurant/bar on a boat in Brooklyn Bridge Park, and it’s a great place to eat oysters outside (as long as you don’t get seasick).
