If you’ve been spent a decent amount of time in the East Village, you’re probably familiar with Italian spots like Frank and Supper. Gersi is the Carroll Gardens equivalent, and it’s where you should go when you want some casual red-sauce Italian. The space is one long dark room that’s perfect for date night, and there’s a big back patio that’s open when it’s nice out. The only real downside is the the fact that this place is cash-only, but at least they give you free bread and bean dip.

Ugly Baby

Ugly Baby in Carroll Gardens is, indisputably, one of the best Thai restaurants in NYC. Plan a group dinner here, and get a big prix-fixe meal.
