Ramona is two-story cocktail bar in Greenpoint where you go when you need somewhere nice. The space is attractive, they have a huge cocktail menu, and you can even make a reservation. Come here on a date, sit on the upstairs balcony, and convince whoever it is you’re out with that you’re more grown-up than you appear to be.

Quality cocktails and more than decent food on Smith Street. Brunch is a big deal here.
The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
Egg has always been a staple for Williamsburg, and they take a very serious, farm-to-Chuck Taylor approach to their food. So serious that they even have their own farm outside of the city.

Old Town Bar
Over a century of Big Apple history lies within these walls, as does a pretty excellent burger. Come have a beer and pretend your horse is outside.
The Brew Inn
The Brew Inn might just look like any other neighborhood bar on the outside - but it’s home to one of our favorite burgers in town.
Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.

We feel sorry for anyone who doesn’t have a Paulie Gee’s in their ‘hood or in their city as an option for excellent Neapolitan pies.
