685 5th Avenue (Between 20th Street and 21st Street), South Slope
What it is: Adorable, kitschy neighborhood spot with bar food, patio, and open mic night.
Why we love it: Prices are reasonable, there’s a full menu of southern-inspired bar food, staff is friendly. Pretty basic stuff.
What to order: Begging the eternal question “did you eat yet,” D’jeatjet offers up some substantial answers with bar food favorites like fried mac n cheese balls. Let me say that one more time: FRIED MAC N CHEESE BALLS.
Regular tip: If you’re in the neighborhood on a weekend, stop by for brunch and $10 bottomless mimosas. Just be sure to line your belly with some of their delicious brunchy type fare like chicken and waffles.
