Hi, sorry to clog the board with another post. I tried to cull the info. I need from other posts but there is such a wealth of information and so much varying opinion it's a little overwhelming to get it all in perspective.
OK, well I'm taking my brother to NYC. I have a lot of friends that live in Brooklyn and while I'm sure they know some great spots, they're probably the type that put the hipster aesthetic and crowd ahead of the actual meal when picking actual places. I just want to take my brother out to an amazing place each day.
Now his taste is a little pedestrian so unfortunately no sushi or French. We'll probably stick to casual food. I was thinking about Grimaldi's for pizza and Luger for burgers among others, but it seems the patrons of this board have tons of suggestions over Grimaldi's and you need a reservation way, way in advance for Pete Luger (going next weekend).
Any suggestions? Remember, he's kind of a meat and potatoes country boy so I want to keep it simple. Thanks in advance!
