This tavern is more restaurant than bar, and it has some distinctly laid-back, neighborhood vibes. Imagine a Blue Ribbon Brasserie opened by your parents. That’s Jack the Horse. Service is friendly, and they serve things like roast chicken, oysters, and steak. When you want to have a low-key night and spend a decent amount on a good dinner, this place is a solid option. It’s also an ideal place to bring your parents.

Belle Reve is a sort of bar/gastropub that’s known to turn into a full on party from time to time. The food is good, but the partying is better.
Chez Ma Tante
Chez Ma Tante is a neighborhood spot that looks like every other Brooklyn restaurant - but it’s not. Come here for simple, excellent food.
The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.

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.
Gran Electrica serves simple, excellent Mexican food and creative cocktails. It also has a great back patio.
