Almondine Bakery

  • Price band: 1/4

Pastry chef–owner Hervé Poussot opens a second location of his beloved French bakery, featuring marble-topped tables, a small garden and a working fireplace. Just as at the Dumbo original, expect breads and pastries including croissants, baguettes and madeleines. Coffee and espresso brewed from La Colombe beans and rich hot cocoa made with Valrhona chocolate are also available.

Bark Hot Dogs

  • Critics choice

Chefs have taken to revising America’s favorite eats with an artisan’s approach—which is one reason for today’s renaissance of foods like burgers, pizza and fried chicken. At Bark Hot Dogs, chefs Brandon Gillis (Franny’s) and Joshua Sharkey (Caf Gray) cast their gaze at the lowly wiener, more often associated with dirty water than the German-sausage tradition from which it descends. Already, Bark has become a favorite neighborhood spot with apparent universal appeal.

Cafe Dada

  • Price band: 1/4

Inspired by 1920s bohemian Paris, this Park Slope coffeehouse features old-world touches: antique pharmacy signs, hanging spoons and a counter made from old shutters. Sip on Blue Bottle Coffee and nibble a freshly baked Hungarian pastry, or tuck into a full meal (chicken-paprikás crêpe; croissant sandwich stuffed with salmon, feta and hard-boiled egg slices).

Mr. Falafel

  • Critics choice

Owner Aladin Habib gave Park Slopers a place to get their falafel fix when he opened this eatery 26 years ago. Half sit-down restaurant, half takeout joint, this is the go-to spot for killer kebabs, koshari (the addictive Egyptian rice, noodle and lentil dish) and creamy rice pudding. Of course, it’s the falafel that regulars love most—made with more fava beans than chickpeas, along with homemade tahini sauce, parsley, vegetables and several “secret” spices.

Polpette

  • Price band: 1/4

Pick up meatballs at this takeout shop, from the owners of Fornino Park Slope next door. The menu includes five different meatballs (including beef, pork and vegetarian) and sauces (tomato, fennel sausage, basil pesto). Get yours on a roll, in a hero, over a salad or à la carte. To drink, the joint offers draft Palm Amber Ale, bottled beers (Peroni, Budweiser), and sodas from San Pellegrino and Boylan.

Pork Slope

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 1/4
  • Critics choice

Good dive bars, attracting regulars from all walks of life, are as integral to the fabric of the city as rent control, bodega flowers and angry cabbies. Many serve food, but that’s rarely the draw. Occasionally, though, the boozing takes a backseat to the kitchen. The Corner Bistro’s burgers long ago put that West Village hole-in-the-wall on the map. And some people swear by the hot wings at Wogie’s nearby. Those places, and many others just like them, have one thing in
