Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain

This gourmet grocery and beer emporium Bierkraft in Park Slope features over 900 beers as well as over 200 artisanal cheeses, meat products and gourmet edibles.

applewood

Laura and David Shea opened the intimate and cozy applewood in 2004 and have developed a steady neighborhood following both for their exceptional cuisine and their devotion to local farmers.

EAT

Eat, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, is rigorously local and sustainable—all the food is purchased from organic farms in the northeast (with the exception of the fish, which comes from Hampton Bay via Greenmarket vendors), including the 6000 sq. ft. Rooftop Farms atop a warehouse right there in Greenpoint. That also includes Wild Hive Farm, which has almost single-handedly brought the milling of grain back to New York, and which provides all the flour for Eat's breads, pastries and pastas.

Diner

In 1998 Andrew Tarlow and Mark Firth inaugurated a restaurant renaissance in Williamsburg when they opened Diner with chef Caroline Fidanza. Caroline had learned to shop the Greenmarkets while working for Savoy's Peter Hoffman, so Diner's menu has always been built around what was at its seasonal best. The brief regular menu, including grass-fed steaks butchered and dry-aged in house, is supplemented by a long list of specials hand-written on a scroll of cash register tape, which in early March included a scrumptious house-corned beef hash under two perfectly poached local eggs.

Brooklyn Larder

For those of you already enamored of the wonderful pizzas, pastas and etc.

Greenmarkets

Greenmarket was founded in 1976 with a two-fold mission: to promote regional agriculture by providing small family farms the opportunity to sell their locally grown products directly to consumers, and to ensure that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer.

Good Fork, The

In the battle for the most “slow” restaurants in a borough, The Good Fork may well push Brooklyn over the top. This cozy restaurant serves seasonal, eclectic cuisine with many locally sourced ingredients

Juventino (formerly Get Fresh Table and Market)

Juventino started by offering fully-prepared and ready-to-cook meals to go, fresh or frozen, at exceptionally good prices; it has evolved into a kind of market-by-day serving dinner Tuesday-Sunday and brunch daily.
