Discover the Best New Restaurants in Brooklyn

The OpenTable Team

Most of the time, when people say New York City, they mean Manhattan - especially out-of-towners. But Brooklyn represents one of the country’s most exciting neighborhoods and a vacation destination all unto itself! You can access it from Manhattan by walking across the Brooklyn or Manhattan Bridges, which also provide a stellar view along the way! Stroll along the waterfront at Brooklyn Bridge Park or the Brooklyn Bridge Promenade. Check out the Brooklyn Museum and hang out with hipsters in Williamsburg for a dose of the borough’s artsy culture. You can even check out the beach by traveling to Coney Island for the day. Not to mention that Brooklyn sits at the top of the list of the best culinary destinations in the world! But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out? Welcome to the Tastemaker Lists. From natural wine bars to raw bars, check out our list of the best new restaurants in Brooklyn.
