Dellarocco’s Brick Oven Pizza

There is no shortage of great pizza in Brooklyn and Dellarocco’s Brick Oven Pizza is not only one of the best restaurants in Brooklyn Heights but also one of the best places to get a pie in New York. Not to mention, it is very aesthetically pleasing with old school pizza vibes with a great bar.

Long before L’Appartment 4F took over the streets of Brooklyn Heights with a brick-and-mortar, the owners were making some of the best croissants and other pastries out of their apartment.
I randomly discovered them on Instagram and that is where the obsession began to where I feel like I was ordering a box for pick up every other week. Needless to say, L’Appartment 4F offers some of the best baked goods that I like to have as brunch in Brooklyn Heights.
Now they have expanded into offering all sorts of different foods, regular pop ups and collaborations and one of the cutest spaces in all of the city. Breakfast still remains my favorite with a few extra chocolate chip cookies to go. If you’re able to, make sure you splurge (I mean truly splurge because it’s around $50) on their viral mini croissant cereal.
L’Appartment 4F is open everyday for breakfast and lunch until early evening. Reservations are not accepted and the line tends to get very long before opening so get there early!
They also will sell out of their popular items, so being early really is key if you want to try one of the most popular places to eat in Brooklyn Heights, especially for baked goodies.
Seating is available inside and you can also grab the delicious bakery items to go for some of the best brunch in Brooklyn Heights!

Chama Mama has been around for years in Chelsea and on the Upper West Side and they have recently expanded to Brooklyn Heights and quickly become one of the best restaurants in Brooklyn Heights.
The food is Georgian and Chama Mama does Georgian food well. One of my favorite things on the menu is the taste of Georgia, which includes a selection of Pkhali and vegetable dishes that is served with bread and cheese. They also have one of my favorite Adjaruli Khachapuri, a traditional open-faced khachapuri with blended cheeses and topped with a raw egg.

Nestled between all the beautiful carriage houses and cobblestone streets are definitely part of the appeal of River Deli. The other part of the appeal is that this is a top choice for restaurants in Brooklyn Heights.
Focusing on Sardinian-Italian this is one of my favorite places to go on a date or meet a friend for some incredible pasta and some great drinks. While all their pastas are amazing, the lasagna is the star of the show. With several layers and lots of cheese, it is one of my favorites in the city. Another stand out items include the burrata and mussels.
River Deli is open every day for dinner and brunch on the weekends. Both indoor and outdoor dining are available and reservations are accepted at this amazing Brooklyn Heights restaurant. It is also important to note that River Deli is cash only.

Just like so many other Brooklyn Heights restaurants, Ingas Bar is not only trendy (in the best minimalistic way) but it also has some of the best and is easily one of the best restaurants in Brooklyn Heights.
Ingas Bar also happens to be the perfect spot for any occasion including a date night, a group hang or a solo outing at the bar.
Not only are the drinks amazing but also they have an incredible burger, a great salad made with celery (and I am not a celery fan) and some delicious rotating soups.

Noodle Pudding is a spot where you are also going to immediately want to become a regular. It feels like the perfect neighborhood spot with large windows that open in the summer and very cozy vibes in the winter.
For food, pasta is the best. They also have an incredible burrata starter. Bring friends so you can share as much pasta as you can eat but make sure you don’t skip out on the lasagna bolognese.

The guide to best restaurants in Brooklyn Heights would not be complete without including an Indian spot and Mint Heights is not only one of the best in Brooklyn Heights but it is also one of the best in the city.
I first tried Mint Heights through delivery and have to admit that I only ate inside the restaurant a few times but ordered delivery way too many times a week. They have all the best traditional Indian but also spice things up including one of the best items on the menu, their crab curry. If you’re an okra fan, order the fried okra appetizer as well.
Mint Heights is open every day for lunch and dinner. They close for a small break during the week between lunch and dinner so make sure you check the hours before visiting. Reservations are not accepted but there is an option to check the wait time before you visit this amazing Brooklyn Heights restaurant.

Located on one of the famous “fruit streets”, you already know this Brooklyn Heights restaurant is going to be memorable based on the location alone. Not to mention they have a little something for everyone from coffee to cocktails and serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
My favorite time to visit this restaurant in Brooklyn Heights is for breakfast. It’s not hard to find a great breakfast burrito in Brooklyn but Vineapple Cafe has one of the best. They also have incredible shakshuka and egg scramble with toast with some delicious homemade salsa verde.
Vineapple Cafe has some of the best brunch in Brooklyn Heights and is open every day from morning to late. Reservations are accepted and both indoor and outdoor dining are available.

Located on Atlantic Avenue at where Brooklyn Heights kisses Cobble Hill is one of the most beautiful listening bars in Brooklyn that also serves up a great menu of food offerings perfect for catching up with friends or a date night.
Their menu features a range of things you’ll want to share. Pick out a few bites from their vegetable, cheese, and small bites sections of the menu and be sure to also try some of their land and sea entrees.
Their cod fish tacos didn’t disappoint, the baked brie was mouthwatering, and tuna crisp was the perfect light-sharing option.

Address: 87 Atlantic Avenue
A classic. Table 87 not only is one of my favorite places to eat in Brooklyn Heights but it’s also one of the best pizza spots in Brooklyn. That’s thanks to their doughy crust with the perfect char from the coal oven.
Oh, and their slices are generous in size using only the best Italian imported ingredients topped off with fresh basil leaves fresh out of the coal oven.
This is their original location, they also have a location in Gowanus and at Industry City. Whether you’re looking for pizza to go, a slice, or a nice sit down with a really great pie, this is it. It doesn’t get better than coal oven pizza.
