Hunky Dory is an all-day restaurant in Crown Heights with very friendly service and a menu we don’t really know how to classify. At dinner, you can get anything from cod “tots” and onion dip to pork schnitzel and a celery root sandwich - and all the things we’ve tried have been solid and interesting. But we especially like this place for brunch, when you can get a big breakfast sandwich with soft scrambled eggs and caramelized onions (add the optional sausage, too). You can either eat at the bar up front, or bring a couple friends and sit in the attractive back dining room that has a big skylight and bright blue walls.

Most everything on the menu at Charlie Bird is fantastic. They do service and wine better than almost anyone else.
Extra Virgin in the West Village is an excellent date spot and is as consistent as they come.
If you live near Walter Foods, you come here a lot. I guess if we lived near Walter Foods, we would too.
