Purple Yam

Best Lunch Deal


If you find yourself in the Cobble Hill area at midday, order the ginormous $10 lunch box. Entrees like chicken teriyaki or veggie and shrimp tempura are paired with fresh salad greens, carrot-ginger dressing, rice, gyoza, and a California roll.
122 Smith St, Cobble Hill

Most Worthy of a Long Subway Ride

Purple Yam

Take the B or the Q all the way to Cortelyou, and you'll be rewarded with soulful chicken adobo, creamy and piquant kimchi pancakes, and exotic Filipino desserts.
1314 Cortelyou Rd, Flatbush

Best Southern Sides

Peaches Hot House

The Nashville-style hot chicken is worth a visit, but don't miss the $3 accompaniments, like bacon creamed corn, watermelon salad, and killer collards.
415 Tompkins Ave, Bed-Stuy

Best New Kid-Friendly Spot

Brooklyn Farmacy

Case in point: This retro Carroll Gardens soda fountain hosted three "Egg Cream Socials" for elementary, middle, and high school students. Parents were asked to stay outside.
513 Henry St, Carroll Gardens

Best Prepared Party Snack

Kors d'Oeuvres

Korey Provencher's classy and delicious take on onion dip is a guaranteed hit. Pick it up at the Brooklyn Flea, and grab some pumpkin and goat cheese spread, too.

Best Adventurous Sandwich Spot


Take a chance on the Scuttlebutt: hard-boiled egg, pickles, black olives, capers, and cauliflower piled on foccacia, studded with sea salt and smeared with aioli.
378 Metropolitan Ave, Williamsburg

Best Mocha

Nunu Chocolates

Made with chocolate shavings and served frozen or hot, this dessert-worthy beverage takes a cup of joe to a new level of decadence.
529 Atlantic Ave, Boerum Hill

Best New Neapolitan Pie

Paulie Gee's

Paul Giannone, the man who learned to make pizza in a self-built oven in his backyard, turns out wonderfully supple pies topped with rooftop farm-sourced ingredients. Bonus: The restaurant recently received its liquor license.
60 Greenpoint Ave, Greenpoint
