The Wheelhouse is a place in Bushwick where 80% of the menu involves some variation of a grilled cheese sandwich, and nearly everyone lives in the neighborhood and is trying to pursue a standup comedy career. This place is on the less expensive side, but the atmosphere is on par with what you want from a charming Brooklyn spot.
