Within the confines of its white-washed brick walls, Chez Ma Tante serves dishes that blend Canadian, European, and authentic New York influences. Don’t sleep on the chips with garlic aioli, kohlrabi and apple salad, and grilled pork shoulder.
Best Things to Do In Brooklyn
Sauvage is French for ‘wild’ or ‘natural’ and this Greenpoint restaurant has a naturalist wine menu to match. From brunch and lunch through to dinner and dessert, this spot serves it all, but don’t miss the main draw: hand-crafted cocktails at its white-marble bar.
Step off Bedford Avenue and into the Big Easy at Maison Premiere, a cocktail bar with an outdoor garden. Be sure to make a reservation: these New Orleans-style cocktails, oysters, and small plates are in high demand.
Like its name suggests, Glasserie is located in an old glass factory in Greenpoint. Go for the rustic vibe and stay for the acclaimed menu of Mediterranean bites, from flatbread and tahini to tuna crudo and carved lamb.
Visiting Brooklyn without eating in a Jewish deli is like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower. Stop by Frankel’s in Greenpoint for New York classics like bagels with smoked fish, pastrami sandwiches, and brisket.
Only in Greenpoint can you find spots like Cherry Point, a former butcher shop that has been turned into a stylish bar and restaurant. On the menu: homemade charcuterie, ethically sourced oysters, and inventive cocktails.
