so..... I'm coming to New York for the weekend with my boyfriend, who is Spanish and has never been to the US, and mostly with the help of this site have figured out where to eat... at any rate, astounded by the amount of reports on DiFaros pizza I've decided to take him there, but am wondering where to go afterwards for drinks in Brooklyn. I understand the neighborhood around Difaro's is a little depressing, where could we go for a relaxed and tasty glass of vino? One concern is the convenience of it-- both our hotel and (I think) Difaro's are convenient to the Subway line 5 and I'm not sure of the distance between subway stops in Brooklyn. The other concern is that it be reasonably hip (but not painfully so) and somewhat indicative of Brooklyn's character. We're not terribly picky about what's on the list as long as it's not just Kendall Jackson's range of products, and it could even be a beer or cocktail joint. Sidewalk tables would be a plus. Nothing fancy, just something cool and laid back. Thanks in advance y'all, I really appreciate it.
