Perfect For:BYOBCheap Eats

This is a casual Jamaican place in Prospect Heights that serves Jamaican staples like jerk chicken and curry goat, and it’s all cheap, filling, no-nonsense stuff that you won’t need a knife to eat. If you’re looking to improve your takeout game, this is a good option. And if you want to hang out and drink, bring your own wine or beer (it’s BYOB) and claim one of the tables, and be sure to order your own personal side of plantains - you’ll want them.

Tom’s Restaurant

Tom’s is a Brooklyn classic for breakfast and lunch since 1936. You know what’s kept them in business for so long? Free stuff. That, and really good sausage.

Catfish does New-Orleans-style comfort food in Crown Heights. Come have something covered in gravy. (They're open late.)
