What does La Mar's Katy McNulty eat in her Bed-Stuy neighborhood? How about Jamaican beef patties, a brisket-pastrami-corned beef sandwich, to-go grits for a start? Take a look at all her neighborhood favorites.
NY Coffee Guide: The Best Coffee in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn
Lower rents and a tabula rasa of long-forsaken storefronts with huge potential dominate the ever-changing Bed-Stuy, and coffee is hot on the heels of restaurants and hipster-exodus gentrifiers in populating the city's streets. Three of the newest are doing a great job both in pouring above-the-bar espresso and coffee drinks, as well as filling out a sense of community in a constantly shifting landscape.
Serious Eats Neighborhood Guides: Chris Bradley's Gowanus
How about a Lomo Adobado sandwich from New York's Sala One Nine for lunch today?
Lomo Adobado Sandwich from New York's Sala One Nine #NYCEateries
Roast pork, roasted peppers, and melty cheese: there's a lot going on in this sandwich.
Chris Bradley, the executive chef of Danny Meyer's latest restaurant inside the Whitney Museum of Art Untitled, is something of a pioneer: he's lived in Gowanus, the neighborhood bordering Park Slope and Caroll Gardens, for the past four years. His commute to work isn't speedy, but it's worth it to live in a place that he thinks is going to make it big in the next year. "It's one of those frontier lands where rent is still cheap," he says. "The young and the hungry will come."
For groceries, the Essex Street Market is a one-stop-shop, and if you're hungry on the Lower East Side, it's a destination lunch spot.

Serious Eats Neighborhood Guides: Andy Choi's Kensington and Park Slope, Brooklyn
A Shrimp Po Boy - White bread toasted in black pepper butter (which is also a side dish served at Talde), spread with a mix of Kewpie mayo and Frank's Red Hot, and piled with fried shrimp. It's fully "dressed," in NOLA parlance, with lettuce, tomato, and pickles. "I like the kind of sandwich you really have to squish down before you eat,"
shrimp po boy at pork slope, nyc
Dale Talde, David Massoni, and John Bush are very emphatic that their newest joint, Pork Slope in (shocker) Park Slope, is not a restaurant. And it's nothing like the trio's other spot, Talde. There's food, of course—burgers, fried chicken, a shrimp po' boy—but first and foremost, it's a beer and whiskey bar. "I want you to walk in with $20 in your pocket and walk out full and with a buzz," says Bush. "Or at least a really good buzz." And the food? "Really," says Talde, "it's just shit we wanna eat." \n
Put some popcorn in front of Andy Choi, the executive chef of Cherry, and he's hooked. Give him a Jameson neat with the popcorn and he couldn't be much happier. While Choi has worked in kitchens from upscale places like Le Cirque to downtown's trendy Momofuku Ssam Bar, he simply craves good, unfussy food when he's home in Kensington, Brooklyn. He moved the to changing neighborhood a few months ago, and with a few stops in nearby Park Slope, Choi chatted with us about his favorite spots.

Step Out of the Big City Into Petite Crevette | Serious Eats : New York
The cramped quarters, naval theme, and off-the-beaten-path Red Hook location of Petite Crevette turns a simple meal into a pleasant little trip. New York would be a better city if every neighborhood had a restaurant like it.
