About the Neighborhood

The always-active New Yorker can find eternal stimulation in Boerum Hill. When not bopping between Barclay Center basketball games and concerts—and operas, films and ballets at the Brooklyn Academy of Music—there’s multi-ethnic eating to do at restaurants that become Brooklyn-y by way of France, Syria, Piedmont, Spain and Montreal. And while much of the neighborhood certainly bustles, there’s also certain serenity to its brownstone-lined, tree-shaded streets.

Home cooks will find it hard to resist splurging at Brooklyn Fare.
