Brooklynites take great pride in the quality of their neighborhood hangs, so it's telling that Kings County readers came out in legions to declare their love for this South Slope spot. The nostalgic tavern hits all the right notes for a chest-thumping local: borough-made beers on tap, thoughtful house cocktails and some of the best damn fries in the city. But it was chef Rebecca Weitzman's seasonal Mediterranean flourishes—evident in a midsummer's pot of mussels flecked with tiny currant tomatoes, and a memorable leg of lamb with salty feta—that elevated it to something far more than a filling station for around-the-way folks. Your move, Manhattan. 441 Seventh Ave at 15th St, Park Slope, Brooklyn (347-599-1262, thistlehillbrooklyn.com)
