Just a great, sturdy New York slice, perfect proportions of cheese and sauce, crispy but chewy. Everything that's good about a NY slice.

The best place to watch a game in Bay Ridge. Service, food, atmosphere and beer selection are top notch. Tacos on taco night are cheap and great, the wings and totchos (tots with the nacho treatment, you ignoramus) and hot dogs are all good. Never had anything bad here, except some tough Ranger losses.

The best burger in Bay Ridge and it definitely isn't close. Try just the classic one with bacon and cheddar on a brioche bun to appreciate it, but definitely take advantage of the special ones too. They can be hit or miss depending on your tastes - the rodeo burger had too much bbq sauce for MY taste but maybe would be loved by some Neanderthal who likes that sort of thing. The Buffalo tots are great too, to the point where I don't even think I remember what the fries taste like.

This place is unbelievable. They have great soup dumplings, fried dumplings and other dishes too. The spring rolls and pork buns are can't miss as well. Plus the prices are low. This would fit in up in Sunset Park's Chinatown, that's how good it is. A real nice surprise.

Wow, this place is great. Good beer selection, an entire portion of the menu dedicated to waffle fries, and all the hot dogs and sausages my friends and I tried were amazing. The service is great, as is the outdoor space.

You cannot underestimate the importance of post-midnight delivery. They actually make pretty decent burgers, chicken salad sandwiches, tuna melts, and the fries and onion rings are always hot and solid. They let you pick a temperature for your burger on the Seamless app, which is key. Emphasis is a weird name but hey, so is your name if you think about it, probably, if your parents are hippies or something. Don't judge.

Exactly what Bay Ridge needs, a sophisticated, dark bar with good wine, and carefully selected meats, cheeses and paninis curated from Brooklyn's finest specialty shops (like Stinky's cheese) and arranged right in front of your face, all while Bob Dylan or Eddie Vedder and his ukulele play unobtrusively and a lineup of zero televisions actually make you focus on the food, the company and the smartphone you use to check in on Faebook. Are you sold yet? That's what I thought.
