Maya Taqueria is a Mission-style burrito spot in Prospect Heights (with another location in Park Slope) where you can customize your own massive burrito, bowl, nachos, or tacos. They also make quesadillas that always have exactly the right cheese-to-meat ratio, and they serve big platters with prawns, steak, and grilled chicken as well. Try this place for a quick lunch or dinner, or just get yourself some delivery. If you go that route, be sure to request a bunch of their housemade salsas on the side.

Rose's serves elevated pub grub and an excellent cheeseburger in the original Franny's space, a couple blocks from the Barclays Center.
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.
The Farm on Adderley
The Farm on Adderley is a really good, comfortable restaurant in a neighborhood that seems to have relatively few of those.

Jajaja is a vegan Mexican restaurant on the LES. Is it the best Mexican in the city? No. But if you’re a vegan, you’ll probably be into it.
As we've said before, finding quality Mexican food in New York City is like finding something on MTV that doesn't make the planet dumber. Mexico Lindo is the needle in the haystack, and we've been satisfying our Mexican cravings there for years.
As we’re all well aware, Mexican food in Manhattan generally blows. Empellon hasn’t come to save the day, but it isn’t adding to the problem either. While nothing blew us away, the food was solid with the good outweighing the bad.
