Technically, Pizza Moto is in Red Hook, but it’s only about fifty feet from the border of Carroll Gardens - so if you’re if you’re in either neighborhood, and you’re looking for pizza, this is a place you should know about. The pizza here is Neapolitan-style, service is casual, and on any given night it’ll be filled with couples, small groups, and parents who are too tired to cook for their kids. The space isn’t very big, however, so make a reservation if you want a guaranteed seat.

A Carroll Gardens neighborhood seafood gem, where the chef might throw a lobster at you. God bless this city.
La Slowteria is a casual spot in Carroll Gardens that serves some of the best Mexican food in Brooklyn.
Quality cocktails and more than decent food on Smith Street. Brunch is a big deal here.

The only thing that is keeping Rubriosa from being one of NYC’s classic Italian restaurants is time. Let’s eat vodka sauce pizza while we wait.
We love Piccolo Angolo because it’s the antithesis of every other restaurant within walking distance. There is nothing cool or buzzworthy happening here, just really good, classic Italian food that will make you happy and probably very fat.
Marea is about as good as upscale eating gets in Midtown, and there’s a lot of that around. Don’t miss the bone marrow and octopus fusilli.

It can be annoying to deal with an unpredictable situation, but for pizza this good, we’re willing to deal with it. Brooklyn's Lucali is incredible.
Frankies (457) Spuntino
Frankies is a tiny, cozy joint with simple Italian cooking, and the food is pretty damn great.
Court Street Grocers
Some of the best sandwiches in Brooklyn. Court Street Grocers is a Carroll Gardens favorite, but it's good enough to travel for, too.
