Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz has news for foodies: Brooklyn Restaurant Week is back—this time with more participating restaurants than ever. The sixth annual Dine In Brooklyn is serving up prix-fixe lunches and dinners from March 23 through April 2 at more than 200 establishments in a slew of BK neighborhoods—from Williamsburg to Fort Greene, all the way down to Bay Ridge and Coney Island. And at $23 per three-course meal—or two meals for $23 at some spots!—the deal is both tasty and recession-friendly.
In previous years, Brooklynites along with citywide lovers of good eats have flocked to Dine In eateries en masse, so be sure to book your table early. Just call your restaurant of choice, mention "Dine In Brooklyn" and you’re all set. The only thing left to decide is where to find your grub—and we have a few ideas for you.
Park Slope’s 200 Fifth offers classic cocktails and all-American eats in a cozy atmosphere, while DUMBO’s River Café—home to jaw-dropping views of the Manhattan skyline from its location under the Brooklyn Bridge—offers feasts featuring fillets, fancy ravioli and more. For more casual fare—and rich, cheesecake goodness—think Junior’s in Downtown Brooklyn. Or take your palette on an international adventure: Italian cuisine at Williamsburg’s PT, Japanese food and a hyper-entertaining atmosphere at Arirang Hibachi Steakhouse and Sushi Bar in Bay Ridge or a fusion of Australian and Scottish eats and Turkish brews and more at Stone Park Cafe, also in the Slope. So many options on the cheap, so many scrumptious eats. Eat your heart out, Manhattan.
