Best eaten while sitting on the boardwalk, looking out on the Atlantic Ocean with a chilled glass of vodka, Tatiana’s salad Kavkaz is the perfect mixture of fresh vegetables, tangy feta cheese, and slightly funky dried beef. It’s filling but light, and just salty enough that you’ll keep reaching for the bottle of vodka, leaving you just the right amount of sated and inebriated for a long walk on the beach.

As a general rule, we’re always pretty open to classic dishes being somehow turned into breakfast dishes. We’ve also been pretty into the recent resurgence of ramen, and especially the “breakfast” version they serve during brunch at Talde, which includes things like “buttered-toast broth” and honey-glazed bacon. Perfect alongside a spicy house Bloody Mary and a side of Sriracha tater tots.

The Pines is one of those places that changes the menu frequently, depending on the season and on the whims of Chef Angelo Romano. But one constant is the appetizer simply listed as “Bread” on the menu. As tempting as it is to bypass this dish for something more exotic, you’d be missing out on something great. Hunks of filone (an Italian peasant bread) are served hot along with a swipe of carraway butter, making for the perfect beginning to what is guaranteed to be an inventive, exceptional meal.

Skate or Die
This neighborhood newcomer has built up quite a following since it opened only a couple months ago, and deservedly so—everything Glady’s has on offer, from the rotisserie chicken to the chicharones is impeccable. But we have to recommend the Skate or Die sandwich as the one dish to get in the neighborhood. Comprised of a perfectly cooked piece of skate (what else?) and slicked with Glady’s addictive po’boy sauce, this sandwich is an amazing Brooklyn twist on New Orleans flavors.
