Berg’n is a beer garden in Prospect Heights from the same people behind Smorgasburg. And just like Smorgasburg, there are multiple dining options. Grab food from one of four vendors then claim a big table with some friends. Or if you don’t have friends, sit at the bar and drink a craft beer. Or drink a martini. (They have a full bar). This is the best place in Prospect Heights for a big group hang, and there’s an outdoor patio space for the summertime.

If you enjoy a shared small plates dinner experience, then Traif in Williamsburg should be on your radar.

We really like Mable’s for its sheer BBQ simplicity. That, and Frito Pie. Get involved.
John Brown Smokehouse
While we enjoyed our time with John Brown Smokehouse, we didn’t quite go crazy over the BBQ the way others have. Though if you and your crew appreciate trays full of BBQ and massive bootfuls of beer, John Brown should be on the radar.
Holy Ground is a below-ground Tribeca spot that looks like an old-school steakhouse, but actually specializes in slow smoked meats.
