Chuko's Vegetarian Ramen is Awesome

New York Lauren Rothman 9 comments

Chuko opened in 2011 and continues to draw enough of a dinner crowd that evening waits for a table can stretch perilously close to one hour. But the idea of ramen on a bitingly cold day is too good to pass up, and for the vegetarian noodle-lover, there's good news: Chuko does a great bowl of meat-free ramen. More

Meet the Trough, an ice cream sundae that should be eaten by no fewer than 10 people, lest you take a fall from the mightiest sugar crash New York has ever known. More

Where to Bring Tourists in Prospect Heights

New York Carey Jones 3 comments

A stroll around the Heights is as pleasant as can be—the tree-lined streets of brownstones, the magnificent landmarks and Prospect Park at its doorstep. It's a mighty nice place to live, too, with a blend of families that've lived in the area for generations and newer transplants who've fallen in love. And that's reflected in the neighborhood's restaurant makeup, too: some classics, some impressive newcomers. More

Saul Bolton opened his restaurant Saul in 1999 on Smith Street. This summer, he packed up his menu and staff and transported them to the Brooklyn Museum, where his recently relaunched menu has welcomed back neighborhood regulars and tourists alike. More

Soulful Jamaican, Even Without the Meat, at The Islands

New York Lauren Rothman 3 comments

The Islands is the kind of place where the table water arrives in a former vodka handle and the check is passed up to you through the balcony bars from a server below. The fact that the food is so outstanding is just part of the reason to pay a visit. More

The Vegetarian Option: Homemade Pastas at Bar Corvo in Prospect Heights

New York Lauren Rothman 1 comment

Bar Corvo's pasta dishes are excellent vegetarian fare. It's a restaurant that—were it still the late '90s—I'd say was worth crossing the East River for. More

Jamaican Beef Patties and Coco Bread at Christie's in Prospect Heights

New York Paul Yee 1 comment

Perhaps it's a blessing in disguise that Jamaican patties in New York are so bad, as the low, low bar set for the Caribbean hot pocket makes the ones Christie's of Prospect Heights even more enjoyable. More

The Vegetarian Option: Lincoln Station's Sandwiches and Salads, from the Al Di La Team

New York Lauren Rothman Post a comment

If you're familiar with al di la in Park Slope or Bar Corvo in Prospect Heights, then you'll recognize the food being served at the restaurant team's new location, which takes common ingredients, cooks them just right and presents them in unexpected ways. More

A Sandwich a Day: Chorizo con Huevo Torta at Chavela's

New York Carey Jones Post a comment

My first impression of Chavela's in Crown Heights was that, more than any other spot I've been to in the city, it reminded me of the casual Mexican restaurants I grew up with in California. Loud Latin music. Splashes of color everywhere. Affordable beer. Friendly, crazy-efficient service. And more-than-serviceable food. More

The Vegetarian Option: La Mujer Gala, Bringing Tapas to Prospect Heights

New York Lauren Rothman Post a comment

In a case of rapid New York City restaurant turnover, the space that once was Aliseo Osteria Del Borgo, the Italian spot on Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights, is now La Mujer Gala, a tapas and small plates restaurant that leans more heavily on true, Spanish-style tapas than on the generic small (but typically expensive) plates offered all over town these days. Though a meal here has some pleasures, the menu needs some work. More

Serious Eats Neighborhood Guides: Scott Hocker's Prospect and Crown Heights

New York Allegra Ben-Amotz 2 comments

As Editor in Chief of Tasting Table, it's Scott Hocker's job to be in-the-know about restaurants both under-the-radar and up-and-coming. But when it comes time to leave work, he prefers to duck into a hole in the wall for some curried goat or scarf down a White Castle burger (shh, don't tell) in his neighborhood, which skirts the border between Prospect Heights and Crown Heights. Here are some of his favorite bites. More

Where to Drink Coffee in Prospect Heights and Crown Heights, Brooklyn

Drinks Liz Clayton 7 comments

The coffee scales have officially tipped in Brooklyn, NY, 11238: it may sound hard to picture, but this once humble working-class area didn't even used to have a biergarten. Thankfully, these days there's ample caffeination alongside these Ample Hills, and it should be even easier to pick up your lattes on the way to Barclay's. More

Daily Scoop: Zabaglione Gelato at Bklyn Larder

New York Max Falkowitz Post a comment

There are plenty of ways an eggy ice cream with sweet wine can go wrong, but this is fantastic stuff: a good hit of booze, the rich custardy depth of egg, and a sweetness that doesn't overpower the delicate flavor of the grapes. More

6 Ice Cream Sandwich Hacks

New York Erin Zimmer 14 comments

Our lives changed the day we decided to stick some gelato into a kouign amann from two great Soho spots a five minute walk away. It got us thinking: what other great sandwiches could we make around town? And who says an ice cream sandwich must be limited to cookie plus ice cream? More
