Hope & Anchor
Classic red vinyl diner seating abounds at this Red Hook diner-cum-pub, whose interior is a reassuring alloy of a blue-tinted bar and red-brick walls, adorned with restrained art. Try the gazpacho; it’s light and well blended. Or the mac and cheese fritters, delicate, un-oily and melding nicely with the horseradish-based sauce. Move onto the moist and peppery pork burger with cheddar and apple relish (though be sure to ask for sweet potato fries instead of the standard anemic variety). If you have room, finish with the banana cream pie, a study in gustatory excess.

Hope and Anchor is slightly more hip with slightly higher end food than your average diner. Not everything I've eaten here is something to write home about, but the burgers and fries are solid and their menu is extensive, with anything I could possibly be in the mood to eat when I need something greasy on a Sunday morning. When I lived in the neighborhood, it was my go to brunch spot for catching up with friends over a large amount of food. I know they have karaoke some evenings as well which I think is genius but unfortunately, I've never been. The only thing I would really change about this place is the hours - too many times I've needed a breakfast burger and have been unable to get one!
