Prime Time: I love Christmastime: the countless hours at work, cold weather, long lines at the malls, extra heavy traffic and high balances on my credit cards … um, I mean … Christmas is the time for giving, for family, and most of all, for cooking those special once-a-year meals. Comments (1).
Dining: Fosters may be Australian for beer — but when it comes to cocktails at Prospect Heights’ Down Under newcomer, The Sunburnt Calf BK, the Grandmaster’s Garita is Brooklynese for friggin’ delicious! Comment.
Dining: Panera Bread isn’t the only chain eatery moving into the decrepit former city office on Adams and Willoughby streets. A chichi barbecue and beer joint and touristy dessert emporium are slated to open next fall. Comments (5).
Dining: Can Sadie’s Kitchen — a Southern prepared foods shop-slash-gourmet mac and cheese parlor with a 1930s diner-meets-country kitchen interior (oh, another one of those!) — beat the curse of 243 Degraw St.? Comments (9).
Dining: The owner of a cheap neighborhood favorite will close his restaurant after 45 years in Park Slope and Prospect Heights, citing a landlord-tenant dispute fueled by a nearby sports arena. Comments (24).
Dining: I just turned 30, so I asked The Brooklyn Paper to help me cheer up, so my short-armed, deep-pocketed editor coughed up some big bucks so I could consume 30 of the borough’s best dishes! But you won’t need a special occasion to try them — or even a big budget! — as most of these treats top out at $10. The Big 3-0 never tasted so good! Comments (10).
Foodie-in-Chief: How’s this for gut-busting gossip? You can belly up to the bar in Williamsburg, have your fill of fried chicken in Carroll Gardens, or get good and cheesy in Park Slope — just don’t look to pad your tummy with Prospect Heights’ dumplings or Red Hook banh mi. Comments (1).
Dining: A boyfriend-and-girlfriend restaurant team is fighting a community board that wants to stop it from opening a French eatery and cocktail bar in Carroll Gardens — a stunning echo to a battle four years ago when neighbors fought the couple’s quiet wine bar. Comments (19).
Foodie-in-Chief: Brooklyn Heights says sayonara to sidewalk seating, a top Clinton Hill tacqueria goes up in flames, and Sheepshead Bay bellies up to the bar. The temperature’s hot this week, and so’s the gossip! Comments (1).
Bridge ‘Park’: Bark Hot Dogs opened a rooftop concession on Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday, bringing beer and frankfurters to a space that’s isolated from wide dining options. Comments (2).
Dining: Far be it from us to indulge in gender stereotypes. We know a lot of manly men who can appreciate a good pear and goat cheese salad or an elderflower-based cocktail. Our editor — a man last time we checked — even boasts of a drink named after him comprised of ginger vodka, grapefruit juice, grenadine and cherries. Comment.
Dining: Brooklyn Heights coffee sippers and laptop lovers rejoice! Vineapple — a cozy community café — opened this week on Pineapple Street, bringing a jolt of caffeine to the otherwise sleepy area. Comments (2).
Dining: The dream team behind Vinegar Hill House will expand its operation with a cafe next door, giving devotees of the bucolic dinner retreat even more to love — and opponents more to complain about. Comment.
Dining: Southern Brooklyn may have lost some of its charm and gritty waterfront cred as the borough’s working fishing village, but for seafood, the area from Sheepshead Bay to Mill Basin still cannot be beat. Comments (1).
Dining: The Brooklyn Paper is cheesy, meaty, juicy and ultimately perfectly balanced. And the newspaper isn’t bad, either. Comments (3).

Dining: Asking questions is my job. But as the new Flatbush-Midwood reporter for Courier-Life, the first question I asked veteran Flatbushers about my beat was the most important of my career. Comment.
Dining: Nature greeted the opening of the new Van Leeuwen brothers’ ice cream shop in Boerum Hill with a blast of cold, Canadian air. Boerum Hill greeted the brothers with a packed house. Comments (5).
Dining: It’s a cross-cultural crepe smackdown in Park Slope, where an Italian take on the traditional French pancakes promises to knock the socks — err, chaussettes — off even the most devout Francophile. Comments (5).
Dining: State finance authorities have forced Park Slopers to say “ciao” to a tasty-but-troubled Italian eatery, slapping bright orange “SEIZED” signs on the windows of Scalino for allegedly not paying taxes. Comments (4).
Dining: In Southern Brooklyn, a super hero’s powers come not from a spider bite, extraterrestrial origins or a special metal flight suit, but from homemade mozzarella, cured meats and crusty bread. Comments (2).
Dining: The hardest thing in professional sports is repeating as Super Bowl champions — but it’s even harder to pull off a “two-peat” at the annual Best Wings in Brooklyn contest at Red Star in Greenpoint. Comments (5).
Dining: Fans of Ditmas Park’s Pomme de Terre may have rejoiced when a veteran of that kitchen took over the Newkirk Avenue spot earlier this fall. But don’t expect the same experience at the new Ox Cart Tavern. Comments (1).
Dining: It’s the ultimate Park Slope good news/bad news story: The long-vacant Miracle Grill space on Seventh Avenue is finally about to reopen — but as a national burger chain with a very cheesy name. Comments (13).
Dining: If you’re hungering for a burger, you don’t always need to break the bank for a good one. We hit the borough and found some cheap — yet enormously satisfying — Brooklyn burgers, all for a Hamilton or less. Comments (5).
Dining: The so-called “cursed” corner of 60 Henry St. in Brooklyn Heights may finally see its first new restaurant in more than two years — owners just applied for a liquor license under the name Bevacco. Comment.
