New York: Top 10 Comfort Food in Prospect Heights
● Amorina – An authentic pizzeria known for Roman-style pies. The thin crust is perfect, and they also deliver. ● Beast – Americanized tapas bar with a diverse menu (brunch selections include chorizo hash with chipotle-spiked hollandaise) and a mellow lounge area. Reservations recommended. ● Cafe Enduro – Comfy neighborhood cantina offering pecan-encrusted trout in addition to more traditional Mexican fare.
● Franny’s – Simple yet satisfying dishes all created with organic, locally grown ingredients and renewable energy — feel smug while you grub. ● James – Perfect blend of homey fare and urban flair in a cozy dining room cleverly disguised as just another Brooklyn brownstone. The creamed spinach and roasted Brussels sprouts are the stars. ● Melt – Bergen eatery with an excellent tasting menu (a Tuesday night favorite), including creative courses such as strawberry gazpacho and grass-fed beef ceviche. ● Ortine – Charming yet elegant, offers equally delicious brunches and dinners featuring scores of organic ingredients — vegetarians welcome. ● Stonehome Wine Bar and Restaurant – Exquisite seasonal menu from local and sustainable sources with divine cheese and wine lists. ● Tom’s Restaurant – A Brooklyn institution with an extensive menu and the best service in New York. Get the crab cakes Florentine with grits and a cherry lime rickey, and then go back next week and get the same thing. ● Fly Fish – Reincarnation of short-lived Whiskey Sunday pimps seafood with similar rustic vibe. Go for the catfish po boy.
