Syndicated is a movie theater. But it’s also a restaurant, and it’s also a bar. The theater is at the back of the hangar-like space, but at the front is a giant open area centered around a square bar. There are often movies or TV shows projected onto the huge walls, there’s plenty of bar and table seating, and there are always a good number of people there to hang out. If you’re looking for a laid-back place to get drinks with friends on a Tuesday, or a place to drink and maybe eat something before a night out, Syndicated feels like a nice change from your average bar setup.

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.
Root & Bone
Root & Bone in the East Village is Southern food done right. Hit it for dinner, hit it for brunch, hit it for takeout. Whatever you do, just hit it.
Lavender Lake could get away with being a just great bar with a large outdoor patio. However, it scores extra points from us for putting some care into curating a small but solid selection of bar snacks and entree sized plates.
