I just moved from Union Sq/East Village to Carroll Gardens, and I'm trying to find about a dozen everyday places that I can eat. I know that Smith Street has tons of great restaurants, but most of them are pretty expensive, and not the sort of everyday fare I'm looking for. I've also seen many good delis, but they appear to be closed after 6 on weekdays, which is a problem.
So where do you go out to eat everyday? I've found Zaytoon's and this little place with fried chicken on Degraw and Clinton. But I've only been here for a week.
