The name is long, but Hard Times Christmas Liquors at the Sunset Bar is just one little bar in the space that used to be Montana’s Trail House. When you’re there, it feels like you’re in a small cabin in the woods, and, while there are some craft beers, most people will probably be drinking Budweiser or Miller High Life. There’s also a big menu of stuff like deep fried mapo chili dogs, chicken wings, and avocado tempura fries, so consider this place the next time you need to get something to eat after a night out drinking in Bushwick.

Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
Root & Bone
Root & Bone in the East Village is Southern food done right. Hit it for dinner, hit it for brunch, hit it for takeout. Whatever you do, just hit it.
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.

Roberta’s is the most important pizza joint in New York City, and this commune of Brooklyn culture only gets better with age.
