Brooklyn has its fair share of high-end restaurants, but it's the casual neighborhood spots that are really worth the extra few subway stops from Manhattan. The borough has become a hotbed for artisanal food companies—many of them now selling their tasty wares at the Brooklyn Flea. And that do-it-yourself attitude extends to the restaurants, too, where you'll discover rooftop farms and in-house butchers. Sustainable and organic are buzzwords at places like Chestnut, Franny's, and Marlow & Sons. These days, it's hard to find a new Brooklyn restaurant that doesn't subscribe to the locally sourced philosophy. New American dominates, but there are also ethnic restaurants aplenty: Russian and Ukrainian out near Coney Island, Chinese in Sunset Park, and Middle Eastern along Atlantic Avenue.
