This is a little operation in Greenpoint that does an interesting mix of Thai and Chinese. Get a few baos or have some purple dumplings filled with pineapple and peanuts (which are pretty much dessert, and you should know that). Or, you know, play it safe and have some pad Thai or Panang curry or short rib ramen. The space is tiny and casual, and it’s good for a quick dinner with a friend or two.

Chez Ma Tante is a neighborhood spot that looks like every other Brooklyn restaurant - but it’s not. Come here for simple, excellent food.
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.

Mission Chinese Food Brooklyn
The Brooklyn location of Mission Chinese Food is a trippier version of the Lower East Side spot.
Hutong is a gaudy Chinese spot in Midtown East where you can get some very good dim sum if you’re willing to spend a lot of money.

Five Leaves has been a Brooklyn hipster staple since 2008. We don't love it as much as other people seem to, but brunch is good, they do a solid burger, and the scene is always entertaining.
