With its dark farmhouse vibe, closely nestled tables and handwritten menus, Marlow & Sons, which opened in 2004, remains the poster child for the Brooklyn restaurant. Do as the Brooklyners do and spend a classic Marlow & Sons dinner at the bar; start with a dozen oysters and chilled muscadet, and then move on to chicken liver pâté and the signature brick chicken. It’s best followed up with the chocolate caramel tart and a digestivo amaro.
