1424 Avenue J
Brooklyn, Brooklyn

Best Pizza in New York. Fresh thin Napoleon pizza; with bits of basil which Mr. DeMarco grows right at his window, freshly grated cheese, baked with love, finally topped off with parmesan cheese.

New York Metro's 2004 Best Pizza pick.

386 Flatbush Avenue Extension at Dekalb Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11201
Everyday from 8am to 7pm EST

This Brooklyn institution is famous for it's fabulosity as well as it's cheesecake. While you can go just for dessert, it's worth going to Junior's for the food. Breakfast is generous, starting with the complimentary plate of mini rolls and danishes. Lunch and dinner cover a wide range from traditional New York deli to a taste of southern soul food. The yam fries are recommended. Even the tunafish salad is good (unlike too many places that puree their tuna with too much mayo.) The chocolate egg creams are among the best I've had outside my own kitchen. As if that weren't enough, the service is friendly and professional, and the clientele is a diverse cross-section of Brooklyners. This place makes me proud of my borough.

Peter Luger
178 Broadway
Brooklyn, N.Y. 11211

Some of the best steaks (definitely in my top 3) in the city. Portions are generous and the atmosphere and dining areas remind you of the beer halls back in the early 1900s. It is a tad pricey and they won't accept any credit cards except for their own, but their steaks are more than worth it.

Press 195
195 Fifth Avenue, Park Slope
Brooklyn, NY

Absolutely delicious sandwiches--they use the "press" (like on those yummy cuban sandwiches) with all kinds of delicious ingredients (my own favorite, custom designed by me, is grilled chicken with sweet onion jam, garlic spread, sun-dried tomatos and artichoke hearts). So you get a crispy, crunchy, bread, slightly flattened, with warm ingredients. Beer and wine, and good music (satellite radio!) and a patio in the back. Service can be a bit inattentive, and never exactly friendly, but the sandwiches are totally worth it. (Cash only, beware!)

I had wanted to take my girlfriend to the River Cafe for some time. I recently had the chance to get reservations there. Overall, my experience was great! This is definitely a place that has an awesome location and top notch food. Both my girlfriend & I had appetizers. I had a great tasting scallop ceviche and she had a lobster tail. For the main entree I had venison which was the best I have ever had. We both enjoyed our meals. As for service, it was very good. We didn't have to wait long when we arrived and everyone was attentive but not so overly attentive once we were seated that it got annoying or that it seemed like they were rushing you out of the place. Yes, it is pricey so expect to pay for the evening (for two people and a full course dinner with a bottle of wine, expect to pay more than $300). However, when it comes to special occasions, this place can't be beat! I would highly recommend it.
