Where to Eat
There is never any shortage of places to eat in Brooklyn, but you can't just eat anywhere if you hope to capture the feeling of a bygone era. The safest bet to feeling like you're part of an old school boys' club is to head over to Peter Luger and get a whiskey on the rocks and a big piece of meat. You just know that Peter Luger is as far as Don Draper ever ventured into Brooklyn, other than that time when he visited Peggy after she had her baby. What a great boss! That one time at least. Anyway, if he and Megan ever decided to take Sally and Bobby and that other kid into Brooklyn for the day, they would have been able to stop by the classic Tom's Restaurant in Prospect Heights for what is one of my favorite places to eat in Brooklyn today. Tom's has been around since 1936 and is ever-popular because it just does everything so well. Also, maybe consider stopping by Brooklyn Farmacy and checking to see if they have any orange sherbet. "Eat your sherbet, Megan!" is one of my favorite Mad Men lines to quote of all time. Of all time.
