Distinctly New York eateries?

raphael didonato | Sep 10, 2007 10:54 AM

Hi 'Hounds,

I'm going to be visiting for a week in November (staying in Brooklyn near Prospect Park - anything exceptional in that area?). I'll be visiting from San Francisco, and I'm looking for something utterly unique in the New York area. I like the fine dining scene - Babbo and Balthazar sound compelling, but I can get amazing Italian and perfect steak frites on the West coast. I'm looking for weirdo/nichey/ethnicky eateries that are totally unique. I'm thinking of Shopsin's, and I've heard of miraculous neighborhood Greek restaurants in Queens (to my knowledge, authentic Greek places are scarce in SF). Any hole in the wall places that do their own thing better than anyone else? Any recommendations?
