Not sure exactly where I'll be staying yet, but somewhere in the Park Slope / Fort Greene / Prospect Heights / Carroll Gardens / Cobble Hill vicinity... likely a brownstone apt. rental in one of the above mentioned neighborhoods. Staying with another couple; close friends who are on a tighter budget ($45 p/p range) than myself. No matter as we'll treat them to at least one nice meal and with other friends in the city, won't necessarily have to dine together each night. I usually stay in Manhattan and rarely venture off the island into the outer boroughs, so I'm looking forward to a different 'taste' of New York this fall...

Here's what I have on my radar from some quick yelping and chowhound search plugs, and would appreciate feedback as well as specific suggestions for a recommended itinerary for our week-long visit; ie. breakfasts/brunches, lunches, dinners, cocktails, etc:

• Applewood - (Park Slope)

• Juventino - (Park Slope)

• Rose Water Restaurant - (Park Slope)

• Al Di La Trattoria - (Park Slope)

• Jpan - (Park Slope)

• Palo Santo - (Park Slope)

• Thistle Hill Tavern - (Park Slope)

• Slope Cellars - (Park Slope)

• Blue Angel Wines - (Park Slope)

• Beer Table - (Park Slope)

• Cherry Tree - (Park Slope)

• Blue Apron Foods - (Park Slope)

• Tom's Restaurant - (Prospect Heights)

• Stonehome Wine Bar - (Fort Greene)

• abistro Restaurant - (Fort Greene)

• Black Iris - (Fort Greene)

• Caffe e Vino - (Fort Greene)

• Olea Mediterranean Taverna - (Fort Greene)

• Aqualis Grill - (Fort Greene)

• Soigne Restaurant & Wine Bar - (Fort Greene)

• Habana Outpost - (Fort Greene)

• Foster's Restaurant - (Fort Greene)

• Prime Meats - (Carroll Gardens)

• Peter Luger's Steakhouse - (Williamsburg)

• Motorino Pizza - (Williamsburg)

• Amarin Cafe - (Greenpoint)

• Ba Xuyên - (Borough Park)

PS - Only place I've been to is Pete Luger's (no surprise!) -- Other than Coney Island (Totonno's, Nathan's, etc) and Steve's Key Limes by the waterfront... but won't be heading out that way this time around! We're from Montreal btw, NYC is second home to us yet we've only ever crossed over to BK to visit friends. We're all adventurous eaters and budget isn't a big concern. All kinds of cuisine (with preferance towards upscale market-fresh and innovative/interesting) as well as ethnic lunch destinations, gastropubs, wine bars, etc. Not looking to venture into Manhattan at all on this trip!
