Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria delivers a unique flavor and consistency that is just not possible from wood or gas ovens. Weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day (cleanest burning fuel available and environmentally tested), the oven heats up to 1200 degrees. We also purchase special coal from Pennsylvania called anthracite. It actually burns cleaner and more Eco-friendly than gas or wood-fired methods. The intense heat of the oven and coal evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi’s famous crispy and smokey crust that Zagat has voted BEST PIZZA year after year.
The Red Hook Winery began in concept in July 2008 and began crushing grapes one month later. Owner Mark Snyder, a Brooklyn native, convinced two Napa cult wine maker friends Abe Schoener and Robert Foley to get on board. The goal, to work with a liked region and make it loved. With as many as 15 different New York vineyards, as many as 26 wines per vintage right here in Brooklyn, we are still a small, hand-crafted operation. Splitting each lot of grapes in half for each wine maker to experiment, we continue to discover what New York means in liquid form, letting the juice tell the story.
Where else—except, maybe, Madison Square Garden—can you catch Swedish House Mafia and a boxing match, or Alicia Keys, the Ringling Bros., and the Chicago Bulls, all in the same week? The curatorial flourishes at Brooklyn’s newly minted sports-and-entertainment complex extend well beyond the programming. Bieber, Beyoncé, gymnastics tours, and so on get you in the door, but it’s the thoughtful concessions (Fatty ’Cue, Calexico), no-fee ATMs, unnervingly perky staff (trained by the Disney Institute, no less), and modern conveniences like cell-phone-charging stations and free Wi-Fi that keep you coming back.
Brooklyn Bridge Park is a world-class waterfront park with rolling hills, riverfront promenades, lush gardens, and spectacular city views. The park currently features playing fields, sports courts, running and bicycle paths, a boat launch for non-motorized boating, several playgrounds, picnic and barbecue areas, two dog-runs, and a pool. Our list of amenities continues to grow as we work each day to revitalize this previously deteriorated waterfront space and build a park that allows New Yorkers to rediscover the waterfront.
The heavily anticipated Berg’n landed in rapidly gentrifying Crown Heights with a bang in the summer of 2014—or was it a bust? It’s hard to tell. The space, cavernous yet fun, is certainly impressive: high ceilings, a beautiful wood bar, and seating that could accommodate half of the borough make it a popular destination for large groups and birthday bashes. Food at Berg’n is from Mighty Quinn’s BBQ, Samesa, Ed & Bev’s, and, currently, B’klyn Burro, though that stand will change to Lumpia Shack Snack Bar on November 8. Guest Capacity, Seated and Standing: 275/375 Square Footage: 9,000 Total, 6,200 guest use Number of Party Rooms: 1 private, 1 courtyard, 1 main bar room

Neapolitan pizza from a wood-burning oven served in a rustic setting that includes a coffee bar. A Bed-Stuy “hidden treasure”, this all-day "favorite" stands out with “excellent" Neapolitan pizzas and other Italian dishes showcasing "top-quality ingredients" plus "the best" cocktails and coffee; the “rustic” interior and "cool backyard" possess "fantastic ambiance", so the only downsides are cash-only and no-reservations policies ("expect waits at peak times").
