BROOKLYN'S NEW INSTITUTIONS

From trattorias to open-air cafes to a reclaimed dining car, these beloved neighborhood favorites will stand the test of time.


DINER (1998)

This refurbished 1920s dining car has been feeding Williamsburg’s creative set since 1998. The verbal menu changes nightly, with the exception of an excellent grass-fed burger. 85 Broadway, dinernyc.com

FETTE SAU (2007)

No waiters, no menus, no plates: Just trays of carefully sourced and patiently smoked meat in a barbecue style all its own, along with a great American whiskey selection. 354 Metropolitan Ave, fettesaubbq.com

FORT DEFIANCE (2009)

Friendly staff, a menu of dependable grub (including NYC’s best muffuletta), a happy brunch crowd and excellent cocktails all day long. 365 Van Brunt St, fortdefiancebrooklyn.com

JAMES (2008)

A neighborhood restaurant if your neighbor is Alice Waters, maybe. The menu is seasonally driven, but with enough standards to make it a weeknight hang. 289 Flatbush Ave, jamesrestaurantny.com

LOCANDA VINI E OLLI (2001)

This repurposed pharmacy set the tone for what every trendy Italian restaurant in Brooklyn would soon emulate: small, thoughtful pastas; rustic Tuscan mains, and a wine list of excellent small producers. 129 Gates Ave, locandany.com

VINEGAR HILL HOUSE (2008)

On a quiet street near the Navy Yards, their honest wood-fire cooking matches the restaurant’s historic charm – natural-born rather than manufactured. The cast-iron chicken is your move. 72 Hudson Ave, vinegarhillhouse.com
