Brooklyn Heights/DUMBO Dining Conundrum

LBG | Oct 15, 2007 10:03 AM

Hafta say that I still find the options fairly middling.

Thank goodness for the cocktails at Jack the Horse Tavern, but the food menu needs a bit more variety and/or a few lower priced options beyond the burger and pizzetta. How about an upscale sandwich special a couple times a week for those of us who can't afford to fork over $20 for an entree on a regular basis?

Also, I've been terribly disappointed with the food at Five Front over the last few months. Used to dine there regularly, but lately their burgers aren't even up to their usual standard. Did see their old chef Elia yesterday at brunch and ended up with a perfectly made lamb sandwich, but still unsure if I should attempt dinner again.

That said, speaking of brunch - What the heck happened to Five Front's yummy brunch breads? They are still on the menu, but they haven't been available for months.

Waterfront Ale House is still going strong - and prolly has one of the best, most consistently solid kitchens in the area. Superfine is OK too.

But what else is out in the 'hood that's worthy of my moolah and palate? Any suggestions?
