I’ve chosen a few of my top food spots in Greenpoint, Brooklyn to shoot a great video and share with you! Come see which are the spots that I love going to with my friends. I’m sure you’ll love them too!

Greenpoint has some pretty amazing places to go for lunch, brunch and dinner! As we’ve previously mentioned, the neighborhood is growing rapidly and new businesses are opening all the time.

One of the great things of Greenpoint is that, since the neighborhood is relatively small, everything is walking distance from each other and along the way you’ll probably find other amazing stores, cafés and happy hour places to go back to.

So, this time, I decided to list a few of my top food spots in Greenpoint that I truly love going to:


Glasserie

Glasserie place is super unique and quite an experience too!

Why? Well, to start, it’s inside a former glass factory dated back to the 1860’s, which I think is awesome.

It serves Mediterranean food with a few dishes inspired in Egyptian street food, has a fantastic full bar and yes, the décor is fantastic.

Oh! It’s also a great spot to celebrate an important day with your loved ones!

Location: 95 Commercial Street

The Brooklyn Barge

The Brooklyn Barge is one of my hidden gems and sometime not even locals know about it.

I’ve written about this place before and mentioned that it has maybe one of the best views on Manhattan, since it’s right by the river.

Getting there is an adventure on its own, since you’ll probably think you’re lost. You’ll pass by old warehouses and abandoned cars, but just continue walking.

They serve food and drinks and it does get quite busy!

Milk & Roses

Milk & Roses is one of my favorite spots and it will make you feel like you’re in Italy!

I love to take people that have never been to Greenpoint, to start their experience there.

The result: they always love it and want to come back!

The place is beautiful, the décor is quite special with a beautiful piano in the center of the main dining room, big red leather couches and a breathtaking garden in the back – where I always prefer sitting!

If you decide to go there on a weekend, you might take a while to sit down. So, be sure to get there early, make a reservation, or just relax at the bar with a drink, until your table is ready!

Location: 1110 Manhattan Avenue

Le Fanfare

Still in the spirit of Italy, Le Fanfare is another great option! The owner, Luca, is also the owner of Epistrophy, located in Soho!

Here, you can expect live music on weekends Jazz nights, large communal tables and a beautiful bar in the front.

Oh, they also have a small private patio in the back open during the warmer months and there are special nights where Luca plays Jazz for everyone there!

Have fun!

Location: 1103 Manhattan Avenue
