Recette specializes in small plates with unique pairings and flavors for brunch and dinner. My girls and I hit up Recette for brunch last Sunday, and we welcomed the laid back feel. The cozy, quaint resto offers novel brunch options and good desserts from a Per Se alum. We didn’t get to try the Burrata Grilled Cheese or PB&J but it’s on my list for next time.
Yummy Asian-Fusion comfort food in a diner-like atmosphere. The food is tasty and inexpensive- you can’t go wrong!
This is a timely post since Conde Nast just ranked Brooklyn one of the world’s 15 best places to visit!
L&B Spumoni Gardens is a Brooklyn institution! Brooklynites and people from all over flock to L&B for their crispy, slightly sweet sauce that lays on top of the cheese square slice. I’ve loved it since I was a kid growing up in Brooklyn, and it’s still one of my faves. PS- You can top it off with Spumoni ice cream or an Italian ice.

It’s hard to score a stool at Mary’s Fish Camp (spawned from Pearl Oyster Bar) but it’s definitely worth the effort! You can indulge in a Seafood Feast in a charming and casual setting in the heart of the West Village (with the feeling that you’ve been transported to Cape Cod). So put your name on the list and grab a cocktail at a nearby spot- Fedora, San Ambroeus, etc.
In honor of Spring (even though if you’re in NYC it doesn’t feel like it), here are a few options that will make your next outing swoon worthy!
