  • Casual Dining and Takeout
    It's easier than ever to find great food on the go in Clinton Hill, thanks to a mix of brand-new casual eateries and some old favorites. Cochinita, a new taqueria with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients, is a neighborhood hit for takeout. In a taco, burrito or "plate," the pibil (marinated pork) melts in the mouth. But you can also enjoy your tacos in the restaurant's charming backyard, decked with greenery and strings of lights. Two neighborhood standbys, Choice Market and Ruthie's, offer convenient eats that are anything but fast food. In addition to its superlative baked goods, Choice provides tasty sandwiches and prepared foods—their rich, buttery chicken potpie is perfect for cold evenings. And at soul food stalwart Ruthie's, you can pick up succulent fried chicken and a world of home-style sides for a true movable feast.
