Re: “The 20 Best Bars in Brooklyn

As a Windsor Terrace resident, I am thankful that the author considers my hood outer outer, rather remain in its current fashion to reduce the Double Windsor spill over effect.

Does Pork Slope have a substantial amount of TVs? That is pretty important for a sports bar.

Re: “The 20 Best Bars in Brooklyn

Yeah this list wreaks of lameness what about beloved for cocktails?
It's a very Proto-cool vibe list, coolest bar not even open yet (?) and coolest bar that's closed down(???). Give us all a break with your list. Do some work you fucking lazy ass bitch.

Re: “The 20 Best Bars in Brooklyn

Re: “The 20 Best Bars in Brooklyn

this list is total garbage. 200 5th best sports bar? what about fucking PORK SLOPE a few blocks away?
Kensington/Windsor Terrace is "Outer Outer Borough" but Bay Ridge somehow isn't?

And seriously - LARRY LAWRENCE?

Was this written by a 23 year old who moved here a month ago from Kansas?

Triple thumbs down - you guys suck.

Re: “The 20 Best Bars in Brooklyn

Ugh. Larry Lawrence is the worst. No Name Bar in Greenpoint should have been an easy pick for best outdoor space.

Re: “Hamilton's: Kensington Gets a Nice Bar

The reason there are no drinks is because of Hamilton's proximity to the church and the school. They are only able to obtain a license for beer and wine.

Re: “Hamilton's: Kensington Gets a Nice Bar

I love Hamilton's. It is definitely a worthy destination for those outside the neighborhood, and not just for the craft beers and ambience, the food is outstanding.

Re: “Do Bud Lights Belong in Carroll Gardens?: Union Grounds

in total disagreement with the author of this article. grew up in manhattan and love me a wide swath of bar types, from fancy cocktail to dive and sports - and this one is just consistently great fun. i also actually really like the food (even vegetarian options) and the scene here is always lively but not too in your face. also the owners are super friendly, helpful, inviting and approachable. i love this place! if anything about this place is offensive honestly it's this review!

Re: “The Brooklyn Food Power Rankings

@Jonny Diamond
Care to explain how the food critics from the Voice and Times -- both Manhattan based -- manage to cover the rest of the borough without resorting to "vicious takedowns of old diners in Gravesend"?
If you're going to write exclusively about yupster Brooklyn, why not just include that in the title?
PS Might want to look into some spam detection filters for the site's comments.

Re: “Do Bud Lights Belong in Carroll Gardens?: Union Grounds

Thanks for the article. Fair and balanced. I'm on the side of this being a good thing for the neighborhood. Their menu is up on their site for all to see

Re: “Do Bud Lights Belong in Carroll Gardens?: Union Grounds

Fills a Niche? Angry Wades just a couple blocks away shows every NFL game. Went here once and it gave me a headache. Who wants to be 2 ft away from 20 TV screens?

Re: “Do Bud Lights Belong in Carroll Gardens?: Union Grounds

This is a really stupid article. I have been to this place and it fills a great niche. There should be a few multi-screen sports bars in the neighborhood. Many people, myself included, want to to wach every NFL game at once. The food could be better though and the space is small. If you're willing to venture further, Rock Shop on 4th Ave. and Carroll Street is a better option.

Re: “Do Bud Lights Belong in Carroll Gardens?: Union Grounds

I've been to Union Grounds a number of times. It's definitely filled a need in the neighborhood. The only other places to legitimately watch sports are the Wing Bar across the street (with it's 2.5 TVs) and PJ Hanleys all the way down Court. That being said, I much prefer the food at Wing Bar. The few times I've ordered something at Union Grounds, I've been disappointed. Additionally, this place doesn't have very good happy hours specials. I'd much rather go across the street to get a dirt cheap pitcher.

Re: “Pok Pok Who?: ChiĆ³

we were fortunate to avoid the wait at Pok Pok and dine at Chio instead. what a delightful experience. everything was extraordinarily well done.
Wine list is one page but well priced. we opted for a nerello from Mt. Etna Sicily. That didn't disappoint.

The ceviche was awful - drenched in balsamic vinegar.

Re: “The Monro: Are You Having a Giraffe?

I'm hoping the magazine doesn't pay you for writing like this. Is it really appropriate or useful to mention that you can't understand your own native language? Dummy.

Re: “My New Kentucky Home

Why is this article called My New Kentucky Home? Is the owner of Fette Sau from KY?
