Favorite Low Key Spots to Eat in Manhattan / Brooklyn

lzomie | Oct 1, 2012 05:41 PM

I'm going to be visiting Manhattan and Brooklyn for a few days and have a very open schedule. I want to know some of the favorite places that AREN'T the usual high end spots (those are easy to find and I already have a reservation or two for those).

I'm pretty adventurous as far as eating, so nothing is too out there. Any location is OK too since there's no strict plan. Gluten free is a plus, but I can navigate pretty well around that on my own. I'd really like to know a good spot for dim sum for lunch. An example of what I'm looking for is the answer I received from a friend when asked to pick one spot I have to eat at in NYC - his reply was Veselka and the borscht was incredible. Also, if you know a dish that is a must eat - please leave that info too!

Thanks for any input you'd like to give.
