Much like all the nearby carriage houses and cobblestone streets that make riding a bike around Brooklyn Heights unnecessarily exciting, River Deli is super charming. This Sardinian-Italian spot is an ideal place to spend a cold night huddled at the bar, drinking negronis and eating some lasagna - which we prefer over the other pastas. Or stop in for a glass of wine and some olives while you try to remember if the woman sitting near the door is Emily Mortimer or Rachel Weisz.
