Where To Eat in Brooklyn!

Finding a place to get dinner can be stressful, especially in NYC, where there are thousands of options to choose from.  To help you make a decision, Time Out Magazine has got your back. Earlier this month, they updated their list of 100 Best Restaurants in New York City. Though their selections are located all throughout the five boroughs, a bunch of their picks are located in Brooklyn!

With over 38% of the Brooklyn population being foreign-born, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of cuisines to choose from when dining in Brooklyn. With cuisines ranging from Italian to Ethiopian to Thai, to Uzbek-Korean-Russian, to Caribbean, there isn’t be a shortage of delicious food to try in Brooklyn.

We’ve done you a favor and consolidated Time Out’s selections to help you decide where to eat in Brooklyn.


10 Places to Eat in Brooklyn (according to Time Out magazine)

  1. Ugly Baby in Carroll Gardens is a hip Thai restaurant that earned the number one spot on Time Out’s list. Notable for serving dishes that you may not find at your typical neighborhood Thai spot. But fair warning– the food here is notoriously spicy!
  2. Check out A&A Bake and Doubles in Bed-Stuy for some affordable Trinidadian food. Menu offerings range from Curries, Roti’s and Doubles (a snack made of fried dough). Though they are cash only, their prices are super affordable.
  3. Paulie Gee’s is a retro pizza place located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Personally, we love the Hellboy slice, topped with their sweet and spicy Hot Honey sauce. Paulie Gee’s can get super crowded, so we suggest picking up a slice and enjoying it by the river instead.
  4. Maison Yaki is a French Yakitori place in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. This French-Japanese restaurant offers no main courses, but a wide range of skewed meat options– all for $9 each.
  5. Red Hook is not just a place to go for furniture! Next time you’re headed to Ikea, skip the meatballs and check out Hometown Bar-B-Que instead. This BBQ joint in located in a converted warehouse in Red Hook, and serves delicious BBQ, craft beer and live music.
  6. Lilia is a chic Italian joint in Williamsburg that Time Out awarded 5 stars! Run by renowned chef Missy Robbins, Lilia serves hand-made pasta, fresh garden-grown veggies and wood-fired Seafood.
  7. Cafe at Your Mother-in-Law is a Korean-Uzbek-Russian fusion restaurant located in Brighton Beach, not far from the train. While the decor may be simple, the food is complex in flavor and uniquely delicious. Though the joint doesn’t have it’s own liquor license, you can buy beers across the street and drink them inside.
  8. Bunna Cafe in East Williamsburg is an entirely vegan Ethiopian restaurant. Located near the L-Train Vintage shops, it’s a great place to eat and re-charge after a long day of thrifting.
  9. Llama Inn is a Peruvian restaurant in Williamsburg. If you haven’t heard much about Peruvian cuisine — just know that Peru has been named the “Best Culinary Destination” for 7 consecutive years. Time Out recommends ordering the Ceviche and Rotisserie Chicken, with a Pisco Sour to drink.

  10. Oxomoco is a sexy and modern Mexican restaurant in Greenpoint that has recently earned a Michelin star! Time Out recommends ordering their Branzino dish alongside a range of Mezcal and Tequila cocktails.
