When Threes Brewing opened up, residents of Park Slope rejoiced. Finally, a place that would actually convince their Williamsburg friends to come visit. Threes lived up to that promise - although the babies of Park Slope admittedly do take over on weekend afternoons. This is a brewery with a bar and a big backyard that’s one of the better places in Brooklyn for a big group hang in the summer. There’s also food here from The Meat Hook, and if beer isn't your thing, there's plenty of wine and liquor as well.

Claro is a great Oaxacan-inspired restaurant that’s even better when you’re sitting in the backyard.
A solid addition to Gowanus, Freek’s Mill is all about the wood-burning oven. It’s best when things don’t get too fussy.
Fletcher's Brooklyn BBQ
Fletcher's serves up some great pulled pork, and is a solid local BBQ stop if you're around Gowanus. We just wouldn't travel for it.

Thistle Hill Tavern
Although not worth a trek out to Park Slope, Thistle Hill Tavern is a classic neighborhood restaurant in every sense of the word, and it seems to fill a void in the area by being a simple and reliable standby for dinner and drinks and everything in between.
Not a place for normal dinner time. This is a place for drinking, and a dirty one at that. It just so happens that they serve amazing bar food that will save your life at 1:00am.
Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.

The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club
Royal Palms is a great place to day drink while also doing an “activity.”
Pod 39 Rooftop Bar
The Pod 39 Rooftop Bar is a great place to grab an outdoor drink in Murray Hill. Although if you go on a weekend, expect crowds.
