The Brooklyn Strategist
A shrine to all things game-related, The Brooklyn Strategist offers players inexpensive access to a wide variety of board, card and strategy games, including Scrabble, Dungeons and Dragons, chess, Warhammer, Settlers of Catan and Risk—as well as many other games that may not yet be household names, like Illuminati and Ravenloft.
Dassara Brooklyn Ramen
Dassara is a watering hole, ramen house and neighborhood booster, touting the kippered salmon from Shelsky's Smoked Fish in a bowl of ramen and a sometime-special of Mile End pastrami sandwiched in a ramen burger or even bobbing in a bowl of chicken broth with matzo balls.
Court Pastry Shop
Court Pastry Shop has helped generations of Carroll Gardeners satisfy their sweet tooth—they’ve been selling traditional Italian pastries, cakes, pies, cookies and other sweet treats, like cannolis, sfogliatelle, macaroons, rococo, seven-layer cookies and lobster tail, by the pound since first opening in 1948.
