A tree grows in brooklyn
If you live or you're just visiting New York, don't forget about Brooklyn, for great restaurants, cinematic coffee shops, and wonderful shopping. Sometimes an escape from Manhattan can be nice, while still getting a dose of what the great city has to offer, but with more of a small town feel.Brooklyn is where the young creative types go for some peace and quiet. The funky picturesque brown-stone neighbor hoods of Clinton Hill,Fort Greene,Atlantic avenue, Williamsburg, and park slope have alot to offer.
here are some of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn...
Ici, in Fort Greene:A great deal for organic and very fresh French cuisine. named one of the top 5 restaurants in Brooklyn. very affordable, a one of a kind only in Brooklyn!
Jolie, on Atlantic avenue: also French food, a very authentic taste of a typical parissienne cafe, with a beautiful garden patio in the back, its a lovely choice for a spring brunch get together.
Moutarde, on 5th avenue in park slope: also French(what can we say we have a penchant for French cuisine. moutarde meaning mustard has a great diner menu and a cool collection of antique French mustard jars around the space.
chip shop:this British invasion is in park slope. this fish and chip shop is a fun eclectic restaurant. their fried candy bars and twinkies are enough to drive one to this 60's style British pop decored joint. as well as their infamous fatty fried candy bars they have great English trifles Shepard pies fish and chips and various fried delectables:)
