Brooklyn for Foodies

By Viator, February 2018

5 276 Reviews | Add your review

Manhattan may get most of the attention from foodies, but these days it's Brooklyn that's earning the hearts (and stomachs) of discerning eaters, thanks to a growing collection of craft breweries, diverse ethnic eats, and farm-to-table eateries. Here's how to experience the Brooklyn food scene.

Must-Try Dishes
For a taste of Brooklyn's immigrant roots, sample some pierogis or kielbasa in the Polish enclave of Greenpoint, or head to historically Italian areas like Carroll Gardens for some cannoli or pizza. And anyone hoping to get a taste for Brooklyn's cutting-edge culinary scene should visit a farm-to-table restaurant in a hip area like Williamsburg, where a wide range of locally sourced, seasonal, organic cuisine is available.

Beer has long been Brooklyn's signature beverage, dating back to the early 20th century when several dozen brewers crowded the streets. Today, you can sample Brooklyn's resurgent brewing traditions at one of its numerous craft beer breweries and theas the famous Brooklyn Brewery

Must-Do Experiences
  • Savor some gourmet bonbons at a high-end factory in the Dumbo neighborhood before soaking up great views of the New York skyline at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
  • See what's brewing at one of Brooklyn's numerous craft beer makers by stopping by for a fun-filled beer tasting session.
  • Tuck into some tasty, local, farm-to-table fare at a neighborhood eatery in an area like Williamsburg, Fort Greene, or Park Slope.
  • Marvel at the diverse range of Italian eateries, Middle Eastern bakeries, retro soda fountain shops, and more in Carroll Gardens.
  • Hang with the hipsters and trendsetters by booking a dinner reservation in Bushwick, one of Brooklyn's most happening 'hoods.
