Ghenet is an Ethiopian restaurant on the Park Slope/Gowanus border. The open space has big windows, a straw-like ceiling, and some low two-tops with yellow booth seating. Most of the dishes are shareable, and you could use Ghenet for date night, especially if you want some vegan options.

A solid addition to Gowanus, Freek’s Mill is all about the wood-burning oven. It’s best when things don’t get too fussy.
Lavender Lake could get away with being a just great bar with a large outdoor patio. However, it scores extra points from us for putting some care into curating a small but solid selection of bar snacks and entree sized plates.
Runner & Stone
Don't make the trek down to Gowanus just for Runner & Stone, but if you want a reliable meal in the neighborhood, go for it.
