Over three years ago we moved to New York City and found our home here in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

This traditionally Polish neighborhood was home to good restaurants, but most of the chatter was in south Greenpoint near McCarren Park. Over the last 3 years we have really seen this neighborhood grow with more and more restaurants, cafe’s and shops popping up each month. We decided to document our favorite places in the neighborhood. We hope it will serve as a guide for potential residents, visitors, and travelers to check out some of the best places to eat, drink, and shop. Our criteria is quite simple:

• Outstanding quality
• Good service
• Unique atmosphere

This list is ever expanding. We update it frequently. Please check back for new places!

If you have a suggestion for a place in Greenpoint that you think should be on this list, don’t hesitate to email us. We’re open to all suggestions! We accept no money, and we are doing this as a testament to our love of the neighborhood.
