PLAN DATE: MON / SEP. 3
With some quirky decor inspired by its Caribbean roots (see: its tropical entrance, rustic bar dressed in old-school knick-knacks, like vintage firearms and amber glass bottles, and eclectic local wall art), the standout at Brooklyn Moon is the food. With a laid-back setting and standout menu options like deep-fried bacon-wrapped plantains and curry mussels, this restaurant does the Caribbean proud.
After dinner, head down the block to Black Forest Brooklyn, where you’ll switch from Caribbean influence to all-things-German. With a massive, open-concept layout complemented by reclaimed wood partitions, a skylight revealing their rooftop garden, and stylized portraits representing the cultural roots of Black Forest’s married owners, this trendy beer garden is more than a little proud of its German beer selection. Sizes come in a half liter, liter, and two-liter (aka literally a giant glass boot).
