Way over in the far Southeastern corner of Greenpoint is Little Dokebi, the second spot from the Dokebi (in Williamsburg) people. This is a great neighborhood spot for Korean and Japanese food ranging from bibimbap to spicy brisket noodle soup to Korean BBQ (grilled either at your table or in the kitchen) to fried chicken to korean tacos. If that roundup wasn’t clear, this menu is big. And the cozy space is perfect for an affordable group dinner where everyone will find something they’ll like.

Sauvage is a place in lower Greenpoint that looks like a French bistro, serves a great burger, and is surprisingly easy to get into.
