I'm meeting a friend for dinner tomorrow (Friday), and I'm just stumped for a new place to go to (I live in Carroll Gardens).
I love Frankies, and have enjoyed Vinegar Hill House, but other than that, I don't have a favorite place in my area (something similar to Frankie's, with cheap dishes and good salads, and the great, bustling-but-still-romantic atmosphere).
I'm not into the meat-oriented places, alas (i.e., Char No. 4, which seems hip-ish). I also have several favorite go-to restaurants in Williamsburg--Diner, Marlow & Sons, Zenkichi, Dumont, D.O.C. Winer Bar, Bonita, Dressler (if I'm feeling splurgey).. Does anyone have any suggestions for parallels to these places in my neighborhood or the surrounding ones?
Thanks for any tips! I'm sure there are a bunch of places I am overlooking.
