“Gastropub with loads of beer options, ciders, and a developing wine list. If you eat meat and see the short rib poutine on the chalkboard, order it!”

Burger Joint

“The main attraction at this Eastern European restaurant in South Slope is the deep fried original burger: a juicy patty plus funky Allgauer Emmentaller cheese, mustard, and a seasonal pickled veggie gets swaddled in dough. The whole thing is dunked in the fryer, accompanied by steak-cut fries or salad. (Dip into sweet beet ketchup, too.) The burger is certainly a filling solo act, but for a gut-busting experience, add on a half order of Halusky, hand-cut potato noodles with Bryndza cheese and bacon morsels. The whole menu goes heavy on meat and potato variations, like Hungarian beef goulash, apple-raisin latkes, and turnip and squash-stuffed pierogis. It also offers an extensive range of ciders and beers.”

““Neighborhood spot” and “mind-blowing food” are two phrases that don’t really go together. The all-day spot at the very bottom of Prospect Park may not look like much at first look, but what’s happening in the kitchen here is big-time. There isn’t a situation for which Krupa wouldn’t be an excellent decision - take advantage of it for brunch, weekday breakfasts, or dinner any night you want something just a little more elevated than your usual go-to.”

“Amazing brunch food that is reasonably priced. Bottomless mimosas which is always a huge selling point for me. Brunch is over a 4:00pm so the best time to get there is around noon. There is a bit of a wait so keep that in mind but the food is always worth it.”
