Tips from locals
This little restaurant is located right around the corner and is our absolute favorite restaurant. The menu is small and it’s not cheap, but absolutely worth it. Reservations are recommended. Tell them Karen and Dave sent you and they will treat you special.
Our favorite restaurant in the neighborhood. A bit expensive and sometime requires a wait (no reservations).

“Whether you're buying fresh groceries, taking in a Shakespearean work, or giving the kids a place to run, historic Carroll Park is the perfect destination. Carroll Park is one of the oldest parks in Brooklyn, and is always filled with activity. Carroll Park has three major sections: an asphalt yard with basketball rims and a baseball/kickball diamond for older kids; a play area with equipment for older and younger kids and a compass-shaped spray shower; and a shady area with public bathrooms for seating and comfort.”

“Very good bagels. Very irritating tables. If the weather is good, take your bagel across the street and eat it in the always-lovely Carroll Park.”
