Help me plan an afternoon and an evening in Brooklyn

grocerytrekker | Mar 5, 2007 10:56 AM

I am not familiar with the Brooklyn dining scene, although I lived in New York years ago (Manhattan).

I've already lined up enough of the likes of WD-50 during my visit (in a couple of weeks) and I will be tired of those and will want something more soulful. Something hard/impossible to get in San Francisco, something unique to Brooklyn, perhaps.

One consideration - no car. Meeting friends for lunch in Brooklyn Heights. (Don't know where - but I'll let them decide.)

Afternoon schedule will depend on where I decide to go for dinner.

Interesting restaurant choices I gleaned from other threads to give you some idea of what I am looking for. Some are taken from older posts. Some may not be convenient - I haven't looked up their locations yet.

Taci's Beyti
Istanbul Turkish Seafood Restaurant
Cheskel's Shwarma King
El Continental
Eastern Feast
anything Arabic on fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge
Yemen Cafe
Lomzy Nynianka
Old Penang
Bay Leaf
Jay & Lloyds Deli
Mill Basin Deli

A few extra points for being in the Heights/South Brooklyn/Park Slope area, but as long as it's a convenient subway ride away, it will be fine, although it'd be nice if I don't spend too much time getting back to Manhattan after dinner.

A million points for food impossible to get in San Francisco.
