560 5th Ave. at between 15th and 16th Sts., South Slope, 718-369-0077

What it is: A restaurant, brunch spot and bar with six tap lines dedicated to local craft brews.
Why we love it: Tin ceiling, bricks and wooden booths epitomize a hardy Brooklyn vibe, while the tightly edited menu manages to hit every craving.
Who to bring: Everyone from dates to your bocce team.
What to order: Fried chicken and cheeseburgers.
Sidecar fun fact: When brothers John and Bart DeCoursy, the owners, were transforming the building from a children’s clothing store into a restaurant, they removed several layers of wallpaper and sheet rock to find a sign reading “DR. TUCKER’S 59 CURES COUGHS, COLDS. FOR ALL PAIN.” Dr. Tucker’s 59 was a popular elixir during the late 1800’s but was eventually outlawed in the early 1900’s because its main ingredient was cocaine. The mural is still intact.
