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.

Popina is a tiny, casual restaurant on the Brooklyn waterfront. The food is a mix of Southern and Italian, and they do some great chicken and pasta.
Although they’re known for their libations at Fort Defiance, this restaurant doesn’t feel like one of those super-cool, pretentious cocktail dens that we all know too well. It has the promise of the perfect neighborhood spot that, if we lived in this hood, we’d frequent all the time.

The best BBQ in New York City resides in Red Hook, in a Texas-style dining hall of sacred smoked meats known as Hometown Bar-B-Que.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new favorite BBQ spot. Situated inside what used to be an old auto body shop, this gutted garage is raging every night of the week.
A long time Infatuation favorite. Blue Smoke is still serving some of the best BBQ you can find in NYC.
