howdy... where's the best place in ft greene/clinton hill for a group of seven to have dinner and drinks at 6pm this saturday? we are driving down to meet friends there.
Great question, Ryan, and thanks for writing in!
My first choice would be No. 7, I think. Great food, awesome bar, and not terribly pricey. It can get kind of crowded on a Saturday night, so you may have to plan on a bit of a wait for a table while you booze up a little.
Aqualis Grill would be another good choice, and they've been decidedly less crowded whenever I've gone, even on Saturday nights.
Other choices? I'd never hesitate to recommend Kif, especially now that they have their liquor license back and bar in place. Cornerstone (formerly Papa's Place, formerly Red Bamboo) has always had a great bar, and I've really liked the food the last few times I've been. Hard to go wrong with Chez Oskar, Madiba, or any of the Italian places, too.
So what say you, folks? Where's your favorite spot for dinner and drinks? Where should Ryan go?
