The owner Dale Talde prides himself on running an important local fixture and his menu is skewed to the high eclectic standards of the area. Every dish on the menu is a twist on the familiar like the Pork Ragu pasta and the Falafel Burger but those searching for more straight forward American fair can count on options like the Southern Fried Chicken. Then there is the Thistle Hill Tavern’s cocktail menu which loudly and proudly exclaims that the pub uses local ingredients so your Thistle Hill Cocktail and Brooklyn Eagle will be as fresh as possible.

Rose’s Bar & Grill

This Brooklyn spot is a world away from Park Slope in Downtown Brooklyn. Rose’s Bar and Grill is in the busy area near the Barclay’s Center and frequented by the crowds that come to watch basketball in the stadium. But Rose’s is not your typical sports themed greasy spoon. The menu is experimental in a charismatic way and the though they say they have the best burger in Brooklyn there are several palatably interesting option if you want to try something new.

The Alphabet city neighborhood in Manhattan is becoming the new hot neighborhood for foodies. People are very protective of their local spots and like to keep culinary gems like Royale under wraps for as long as they can. Tucked innocuously into Avenue C the place looks like a dive from the street but it is deceptively expansive on the inside with a nice beer garden-esque back yard and tasty singular sandwiches like the Bacon Royale and Double Royale burgers. One of the most attractive aspects of the place is its $3 beers during happy hour deal.

Boulton and Watt

This tidy corner spot is a prime example of the history of NYC dovetail into the present. Taking its name from the Brits who made steam engines during Industrial Revolution the place has the feel of a culinary art factory or a diminutive brewery. However the menu is much different form the decor you can enjoy interesting dishes like the Steak Frites and Blackened Free Range Brick Amish Chicken. And if you are veg try the wild mushroom toast or quinoa salad with golden beets.
