If you’re looking to drink truly excellent beer and have some very good food with it, Tørst is one of your best options in the city. They’ve been pouring a daily-rotating selection of impressive draught beer (as well as a rare bottle list) for years, and they just started serving a full food menu that’s part American, part Danish, and part Mexican. Besides the beer and food, it’s also important to know that above all Tørst is just a really great place to hang. Imagine a Swedish sauna, but replace the naked sweaty people with clothed tipsy people, and turn the lights down low - that’s what you can expect to see at Tørst. And if that doesn’t sound fun to you, just come and see it for yourself.

Rule Of Thirds
Rule of Thirds is an enormous Japanese spot in Greenpoint, and it’s a great place to eat izakaya-style food and drink sake with a group.
Broken Land’s spacious patio and excellent Piña Colada make it one of the best places to spend an afternoon drinking Brooklyn.
When a Mexican restaurant you love tells you to eat at another Mexican restaurant, you listen. That’s how we discovered Acapulco Deli, and you should discover it too.

Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar
Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar is a tiny place in the West Village where you can sit on a barstool, eat some small plates, and have a few drinks.
Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
Most everything on the menu at Charlie Bird is fantastic. They do service and wine better than almost anyone else.
