As befitting Brooklyn’s reputation as a place for good food (for everyone but Vogue anyway), it’s been popping up in “Best Of NYC” food lists like New York Magazine‘s Best Cheap Eats more and more. After having 15 and then 18 spots the last couple years though, Brooklyn had 31 of the 100 Best Cheap Eats this year, with restaurants spanning from Brighton Beach to Greenpoint. While on the one hand this could mean longer waits at your favorite spots, on the other hand, more places on this list means a bigger cut of appropriations from the City Council. Or at least that’s how we understand it. So there’s that.
