Eater editors get asked one question more than any other: Where should I eat right now? While many people still consider Manhattan the locus of New York’s dining scene, some neighborhoods in Brooklyn have become dining destinations in their own right. Here, see a map of the latest Brooklyn debuts drawing NYC’s dining obsessives.
Edith’s Eatery & Grocery
It’s been a non-stop year and a half for Elyssa Heller, the Jewish American restaurateur behind Greenpoint’s hottest bagel pop-up and more recently, one of Williamsburg’s smallest sandwich counters. Heller unveiled her latest act earlier this year, a restaurant and grocery store called Edith’s Eatery & Grocery. There’s daytime menu with plates of pickled mackerel and schnitzel, or arrive after 6 p.m. for a shorter list of shawarma lamb ribs and beef tongue tagliatelle. Dinner launches later this week.
