Brooklyn is the world’s capital of warehouses that also happen to have non-warehouse things in them, like a somewhat out-of-place restaurant called Sugarcane. You wouldn’t know it from the outside, but Sugarcane is a giant, swanky restaurant right next to the indoor carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park, serving everything from a “lobster BLT” sushi roll to foie gras fried rice to a roast chicken. Once you’re in, you’ll understand why Sugarcane would probably make more sense in midtown or Miami (where they originally opened). The place is over-decorated to the point where no two light fixtures are the same, but the staff is absurdly nice and if you need a break from walking around, their bar and lounge is good for a drink and an order of sashimi.

Salt & Fat
We wanted to love Sunnyside's Salt & Fat more than we actually did. Every dish on the menu reads like a carnivore’s delight, and while some items are incredible, others completely miss the mark.
With a couple of locations around the city, Luke’s Lobster is a casual spot to grab a good, simple lobster roll.
