i'm going to at the brooklyn museum thursday evening and was looking for a neighborhood gem to have dinner at. casual sit-down would be nice, being part of dine-in brooklyn would be even nicer, but ultimately, we're just looking for a change up from our usual greenpoint/williamsburg routine of thai/japanese/mexican/chinese.
walking distance and near the subway is preferred.
i've been to islands before so i'm keeping that as a last resort option.
thanks in advance!
