Foodies, start your engines! Dine in Brooklyn starts on March 23


The annual Dine in Brooklyn week begins on March 23, and five Brooklyn Heights restaurants will be participating.

Between March 23 and April 2, diners can get a three-course meal for $23 at nearly 200 of the borough best’s restaurants. And, some restaurants are offering brunch for $23 per couple, including Café Buon Gusto and Eamonn’s.

Borough President Marty Markowitz held a lunch tasting today to preview some of the goods, and Café Buon Gusto manager Leonardo Altube was on hand to showcase the restaurant’s eggplant parmesan and penne alla vodka with sun-dried tomatoes and bacon.

Update: A full list of participating restaurants is viewable here, or by visiting The Brooklyn Heights restaurants are:

    You go, Queen and Le Petit Marche!

    Two restaurants we would all do well to frequent more frequently (assuming possession of sufficient scratch).

    I can’t find the list on that website…

    Queen is the nastiest restaurant in the Heights. Their food has a distinct antiseptic flavour to it. I don’t know who busted their kneecaps to get that Michelin star.

    Rashomon, Ali. But then, so much often is.

    I’ve never been to Queen, but recommended it to some passing tourists.

    In the Heights, both Queen and Waterfront Ale House are great. But Dine in Brooklyn is 10 days long, from March 23-April 2, so you might want a few more options. Just a few blocks from Borough Hall are the 14 restaurants of Dekalb Avenue in Fort Greene – recently hailed as “Brooklyn’s latest culinary mecca” by the NY Times (3/8/09). So take a stroll towards Juniors, but keep on walking across Flatbush and up Dekalb Avenue, or take a short cab ride and experience what so many people have been talking about.
