We’ll just get this out of the way now: The Westlight is the end of Brooklyn. That sounds dramatic, but this fancy rooftop bar on top of the even fancier new William Vale hotel in Brooklyn feels like something you would find in Manhattan - and not even downtown Manhattan. That said, you can’t deny that these are some of the best views in the entire city, and the food and drinks are pretty good. Celebrate a birthday here, or bring an out-of-towner who doesn’t understand the difference between Brooklyn and Manhattan anyway. They’ll be impressed. Make a reservation in advance if you want to skip the line.

Mister Dips is a little trailer in a Williamsburg park where you can pick up a burger, some ice cream, and a thing of waffle fries covered in cheese.
