Just moved to Bay Ridge - looking for advice (restaurants, provisions, etc)

adam | Feb 3, 201409:43 AM     24

Hi! I just moved down to Bay Ridge, and am very excited to do some exploring. I would love recs for anything and everything, from ordering in to nicer meals out to grocery shops, etc. I know this is awfully broad, so let me narrow it down a little bit, and also describe what we've discovered so far:

Take-out/delivery:
We've found lots of great sandwiches so far. Paneantico, Zeke's, Zito's chief among them. I also hear good things about Butcher Bar. What are we missing?

Pizza - Peppino's is nearby and I like it quite a bit, and we enjoyed the grandma pie from Nino's. Was not very impressed with Rocco's, though. Any thoughts on other pizza spots to try?

Burgers - we're down the block from Skinflints. I thought the burger was good, but sadly a bit underseasoned. Any other recs? I was not crazy about Kettle Black -they overcooked and underseasoned the burger. Maybe Butcher Bar? Elsewhere?

Chinese - have not tried yet, but hear great things about Grand Sichuan House. Is it still a good pick, and any other spots? Kathy's dumplings? Any Sunset Park spots deliver?

Middle Eastern - have had great take out from the Family Store. Thoughts on places that deliver?

Thai/Vietnamese - is there anything?

Mexican - anything? Any Sunset Park places that will deliver down to 79th Street?

Bagels - tried Bagel Shmagel, which was good but not great. Do people like Bagel Boy? Steve's?

Sweets - aside from Robicelli's, which is fantastic, what do folks like for sweets? Seems like a lot to choose from between french bakeries, middle eastern spots, ice cream places, etc.

I think that covers most of the bases, but would love any suggestions.

Provisions/groceries -
We're really looking for anything and everything. Good butcher, good fish guy, good cheese shop, good beer shop, wine shop, bread bakery, general grocery store, etc. So far ALC seems like a good specialty shop, and the new Brooklyn Market seems like a decent option. But any help finding other places is much appreciated!

Thank you so much, in advance, to anyone who can help! We are thrilled to be in the neighborhood. I'll certainly keep posting as we discover places as well. All the best.
