The Rockwell Place is a cocktail bar in Fort Greene, and it’s perfect for when you want to grab a drink with a friend or a date, but you don’t necessarily need to take a bunch of shots and possibly fall asleep on your subway ride home. It’s a long room with high ceilings and a couple of skylights, and while there isn’t really any standing room, there are plenty of bar seats and little tables where you can sit down and drink a good cocktail. If you need a nice place to spend time before or after you see something at the Barclays Center, keep this in mind.

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.
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.
La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.

Looking for a good place to post up for a night of game watching, beer drinking, and good grubbing? Reservoir is the place to do it. Underrated bar food.
Jones Wood Foundry
A great British pub that will help you solve all of your Upper East Side problems, or at least the ones related to food.
Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine
In truth, without a basketball court and Walt Clyde Frazier's involvement, we wouldn’t be talking about the Wine and Dine. The space is massive, the layout is clunky, but the food is pretty good. If you're a hoops fan, it's a must visit.
