This Mediterranean spot sits at the very top of the borough - go any farther north and you’re in Queens. Glasserie opened in 2013 and, despite an influx of newer, “hotter” spots in the years since, it has quietly continued to serve some of the very best food in the neighborhood, in a former factory space that still feels special. We love Glasserie for a date night dinner, but it’s a fantastic choice for brunch, when they offer a mezze feast.
