If you’re looking for a spot in Brooklyn that feels like a sceney LES restaurant, head to Sally’s - it’s the second Caribbean place from the people behind Sally Roots and it’s also where you should meet up with your amateur DJ friend in Bed-Stuy. The combination of curry crab rangoons and pork buns, creative cocktails, and a strong Kaytranada playlist makes this neighborhood spot feel like one big VIP booth at a tiki-themed club. Grab a seat at the bar or sit in a booth with some friends and convince them to sign your petition to ban long lines on the LES.
