The original Fornino is in Williamsburg, but their Neapolitan-style pizzas fit in just fine in Brooklyn Heights. This is an excellent alternative to the lines at nearby Grimaldi’s and Juliana’s, and it’s also a much better option for summertime dining. When it’s nice out, there’s a big roof where you can sit and watch the sunset over Manhattan. Toppings here range from asparagus to fennel sausage and soppressata. And if you’re not in the mood for pizza, have a salad, some meatballs, or a prosciutto calzone.

Leuca is an Italian restaurant with Manhattan vibes, in the bottom of a Williamsburg hotel called The William Vale.
Bonnie's Grill is a great neighborhood spot with a full menu of divey bar food classics. However, we still need better options for wings in the city, and Bonnie's doesn't quite make the cut.
The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.

Pizza in a sterile Flatiron District hotel lobby just doesn’t feel like the Danny Meyer hospitality experience we’ve grown accustomed to.
PizzArte is not just another pizza joint. It also happens to be an art gallery. That must have sounded awesome in the business plan.
