We used to live in Bedstuy, Brooklyn. Though we hated our old apartment, the neighborhood had many gems that we absolutely love. If you are ever in Bedstuy, check out these spots!
Peaches Hothouse Amazing brunch with a southern flair! There’s nothing that makes us happier than fried chicken and honey. We took many friends here and they all loved us a little more after our shared meals!
Do or Dine Restaurant by Food Network Star winner Justin Warner. Can’t say enough good things about this place. Everything is delicious and despite the familiar names, nothing is what you usually expect. The chicken and waffles features jerk chicken. The fish and chips comes with a whole fish. Spoiler alert – we know! But there are still many surprises waiting for you to discover at Do or Dine!
David’s Brisket House Many people go to Katz and few know about David’s. But the truth is David’s will surpass all your expectations of what a good pastrami and rye sandwich should be. The Muslim owner of David’s has definitely mastered the Jewish expertise of smoking meat to perfection.
Bushbaby This place was just right around the corner from our old place and we used to see the own everywhere in the hood. Cute coffee shop with tasty hot drinks for the winter including tea mixed with wine.
Tiny Cup This little spot has the best bagels that we’ve had in the city.
Common Grounds Delicious coffee and snacks.
