Bunker used to be in Ridgewood (where we gave them an 8.4), but now they have a bigger operation in Bushwick. It’s a little hard to find (no sign), but once you get there you'll find a good crowd, good music, and friendly service. The soundtrack's a little loud, but you won’t hear Top 40, and it keeps the place lively. All that, and the Vietnamese food here is more flavorful and authentic than you'd expect. This is the place to go with five friends on a Friday night out in Bushwick.

Off the main stretch in Williamsburg is Aurora, a place charming enough for a First/Early in the Game Date, calm enough for Dinner with the Parents, and with an insane, well-greened Outdoor/Patio Situation.
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.
