    The restaurant scene in Clinton Hill and Fort Greene reflects the area's eclectic personality, encompassing hot new restaurants, established eateries and a mix of cuisines and prices. Among Fort Greene's brightest recent additions is critical darling No. 7, Chef Tyler Kord's unexpected—and addictive—flavor combinations keep the airy space with its marble-topped bar busy. His broccoli taco, made with feta cheese and peanuts, has practically created its own following, and rightly so. If one were to choose another dish in the area that deserves such a following, it might be the burger at newcomer Lulu & Po—a double patty perfectly paired with goat cheese and pickles, it's cheap at $12. This diminutive spot gets everything right, from its scrumptious small plates to the interior's clean-but-cheerful design. Longtime neighborhood anchor, South African restaurant Madiba, is also big on atmosphere, with its convivial sidewalk dining; and, of course, the satisfying, deeply flavored dishes might just have something to do with the upbeat crowd that keeps the place so busy.
