My 13 Favorite Brooklyn Restaurants

7. Vanderbilt - The Vanderbilt explores the potential of Brooklyn charcuterie, turning out diverse sausages like weisswurst and bangers in profusion, then switching gears to drinking snacks that include Brussels sprouts with honey and Sriracha and scrumptious deviled eggs, finally turning out exemplary main courses including one of the borough's best burgers. Shown above: pork loin. 570 Vanderbilt Avenue, Prospect Heights, 718-623-0570

6. Roman's - Eating at Roman's requires a leap of faith, because the menu is different every day, determined by a conference among chef and line cooks. The results are often fresh and spectacular, from market-driven salads, to second course pastas, to third courses such as the wood-oven roasted goat with frybreads shown above. 243 Dekalb Avenue, Ft. Greene, 718-622-5300

5. Mitchell's - This ancient and venerable soul food spot has flourished despite the gentrification of the neighborhood all around it, a palace of great fried chicken, mac and cheese, ribs, smothered pork chops and, yes, chitterlin's. The reason? The food is excellent and the prices cheap. 617A Vanderbilt Avenue, Prospect Heights, 718-789-3212

Too bad you fired the best food writer in NYC. At least you can wring a few more clicks out of him.

Right now the sidewalks are rolled up on the North Fork but we have some kick ass dining spots here in the boonies!  When things start reopening I will take some pics & show those of you living "up island" & in the boroughs what culinary tidbits are happening here.
