This true Gem and my #1 recommended restaurant in all of NYC is only a few blocks away. Perfect for a date night, meeting friends, or just eating the best caesar salad of your life (not to mention amazing pancakes at brunch)! This place is on the Spring 2019 Eater 38 list for NYC (i.e. the best 38 restaurants in NYC right now) and was voted best Neighborhood restaurant in all of NYC, which means you can usually snag last minute reservations or just walk in.

This is one of the best slice shops in all of NYC (dare I say the world). They're famous for both their Hellboy slice (Pepperoni + Mike's Hot Honey) and their Freddy Prince (an upside-down Sicilian with fresh mozzarella, tomato sauce, pecorino romano, and a sesame seed bottom). They also do great vegan pizza.

Greenpoint is historically Polish and has, arguably, the best Polish food outside Poland. This place is considered by many to be the best and is on our block, but the other contender, Krolewskie Jadlo, is only a few blocks away too if you end up loving your pierogis and stuffed cabbage.

One of the best bars in NYC. I'd say it's a well-kept secret, but it seems like everyone knows. It's only a 7-minute walk from our house, but that's far enough from the subway to help maintain its amazing sense of cool. Great in the winter too when there's a fireplace.
