Greenpoint rising: The Brooklyn waterfront’s bar and food scene blows up

Move over, Williamsburg—the northern tip of nearby Greenpoint has become an up-and-coming dining destination, with new restaurants and bars popping up all along the waterfront. The spanking-new set spans Mediterranean small plates, New American fare, updated classic cocktails and draft beers. These four Greenpoint spots are worth the G-train hassle.
