Cemetery
“Founded in 1838 as a rural cemetery in Greenwood Heights, this site was inspired by the Pére Lachaise Cemetery in Paris and Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Having vied with Niagara Falls as New York State’s greatest tourist attraction, it gained landmark status in 1966. Filled with Victorian mausoleums, cherubs and gargoyles, Green-Wood is the resting place of some half-million New Yorkers, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Leonard Bernstein and Boss Tweed. But there’s more to do here than grave-spot: Check out the massive Gothic arch at the main entrance or climb to the top of Battle Hill, a pivotal spot during the Battle of Brooklyn in 1776.”

“Fonda is perhaps better known by its Chelsea and East Village outposts, but the original Park Slope location still holds its own — and is still reliably busy. The chicken enchiladas suizas are the thing to get here, though the mole enchiladas are a safe way to switch it up. Pair them with the signature rosalita margarita or any of the other versions (the spicy chipotle-infused blood-orange margarita doesn’t come to play). It’s also a great date spot: lively, not too fussy, and thoroughly dependable.”

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.”

“This South Slope restaurant is plenty charming for a date but low-key enough to be a casual weeknight dinner that doesn’t require a reservation. Don’t miss the namesake burger, where a thick, juicy Creekstone Farms patty with considerable funk is smothered in a thick layer of white cheddar and served with pickled onions and thin-sliced pickles. It’s accompanied by three hefty duck fat fries.”

““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.”
