It's that time of the year, so AMNY threw its hat into the best-of ring yesterday. Naturally, Brooklyn made the cut in several categories. A few are below. For more, check out this pdf from AMNY.
Best Theme-y Bar: Radegast. "The feel is typical 1800s beer hall, with dark wood, communal tables, a circular bar and portraits of various German heroes overseeing the action."
Best New Brooklyn Restaurant: General Greene. "The farmhouse fare at this new favorite is fresh and the service friendly and capable."
Best Seasonal Cocktails: Botanica. "Drinks like the Hemingway (rosemary, vodka, elderflower liqueur and grapefruit juice) or the Maori (muddled kiwi, cucumber, vodka and lime juice) are made with fresh herbs and fruits and — thankfully — no pretension."
Best Non-Lame Stand-up: Sound Fix. "A miracle, as far as we’re concerned."
Best Bar to Meet the Opposite of a Banker: Hank's Saloon. "Head straight to this rickety urban honky tonk for cheap beer, occasional free ‘cue, country karaoke and a (very) divey atmosphere happily devoid of Brooks Brothers suits."
