Southern Comfort Food

There’s nothing better than a sweet or savory hearty southern meal. That’s exactly what you can find at Jacob’s Pickles, where they have solidified their name on the list of Time Out New York Market’s best food and a favorite restaurant in NYC.

Jacob’s Pickles opened up in the Upper West Side in 2011, their goal was to provide New York with something it was missing, country-style comfort food and lots of pickles.

Since opening the Time Out Market New York restaurant location, southern comfort food has never been more appealing in Brooklyn. Check out some of these country classics:

  • Jacob’s handmade pickles
  • Fried pickles
  • Honey chicken & pickles
  • Jacob’s famous mac & cheese

If I were you I would take a look at their specials like the Southern fried chicken caesar salad and the Buffalo chicken mac & cheese – two dishes that make this one of Time Out New York Market’s best food options.

Complete your meal at Jacob’s Pickles with the ultimate comfort dessert, fried Oreo cookies!

Clinton Street Baking Company

Bakery & Breakfast

This isn’t the first time I’ve said it, and it definitely won’t be the last, I love Clinton Street Baking Company. This is the perfect spot especially if you find yourself in DUMBO around breakfast time. By far one of Time Out New York Market’s best food options and a personal favorite.

Clinton St. Baking Company opens at 8 AM daily serving exceptional first meal of the day items. This spot is definitely more of a sitdown option because who really wants to take their fluffy blueberry pancakes to go and chance they get cold? No one, duh.

Although Clinton Street Baking Company has a Lower East Side location, at 4 Clinton St, they also have locations in Tokyo, Dubai, Singapore, and Bangkok. Aren’t we so lucky to have these global breakfast magicians in our beloved Brooklyn?

Try their main blueberry, banana walnut, or chocolate chunk pancakes all served with a warm maple butter. Practically irresistible if you ask us.

Or go for my personal favorite, the Spanish scramble. It’s cage-free eggs, chorizo, tomatoes, caramelized onions, scallions, and Monterey Jack served with delicious hash browns and a mouthwatering side of hot sauce.

If you’re a sucker for a heck of a breakfast or you’re a breakfast for dinner kind of person, read no further. This is your spot! Clinton St. is where you can find some of Time Out New York Market’s best food.

This is also one of our picks for the best spots for brunch in DUMBO!

While Wayla took NYC by storm when it opened for business in 2019, it was only a matter of time before it was going to make an appearance in one of NYC’s famous food halls. Luckily for Brooklyn, Wayla found a nice little home right here in Time Out Market New York.

Wayla offers customers an authentic Thai experience with ingredients inspired by the markets of Bangkok. The Time Out location offers customers a variety of options for Thai food enthusiasts and those who may be new to Thai food. Visitors can find a number of papaya salads on their menu as well as spare ribs, half chicken, meat skewers, street-style chicken wings, and crab rice or noodles.

For seafood lovers, make sure to check out the Raw Bar when dining in! Wayla serves lobster, oysters, clams, shrimp, and more!

My favorite aspect of this restaurant is that Wayla actually translates to “time,” in Thai, which means they ask you take a little time and stop by for a drink or a bite to eat.

If you love this Wayla location, feel free to check out their original location on the Lower East Side in Manhattan!

Two business partners joined together to create great food and make a positive impact on the world. You can join their movement by dining in at The Migrant Kitchen, an Arab-Latin pop-up restaurant at Time Out Market New York.

For every $12 spent at this restaurant, a meal goes to someone in need. Isn’t that neat?

You won’t want to miss all the flavor they have to offer at The Migrant Kitchen. Customers can start off with a delicious plate of hummus, empanadas, or potato wedges and follow that up with any number of their mouthwatering main dishes. Definitely check out the chicken or salmon dishes!

Don’t forget to add a cucumber mint lemonade, you won’t regret it!

The Migrant Kitchen has plans to expand in NYC, so keep an eye out for this amazing company continuing to do amazing things!

Chote Miya

Exploring the flavors of the globe continues at Time Out Market New York! Chote Miya is a flavorful Indian cuisine inspired by Bombay’s street-side eateries.

Chote Miya looks to provide a delicious and casual dining experience for featuring the flavors of India in their dishes and fusion recipes like their Bombay frankies that are similar looking to tacos but with ingredients and spices from India.

For starters, I would go with their Honey Chili Cauliflower or samosas! I would follow up with maybe one of their curries. Butter Chicken is one of the best options for people new to Indian cuisine. 

They also offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options.

And if you still need some convincing to check out Chote Miya at Time Out Market, check out their Instagram. I’m sure you’ll be heading their way in no time.

Sugar Hill Creamery

There is absolutely no lack of sweet and delicious treats here in Brooklyn, but you’re in store for  the sugary experience of a lifetime here at Sugar Hill Creamery. This creamery opened their doors in Harlem back in 2017 and have started serving up their sweets right here in DUMBO.

Not only do all their ice cream flavors have interesting and random names, like “Chairperson of the Board,” which is a blueberry cheesecake flavor, they also rotate their flavors on a daily basis at all their locations. It might be a good idea to have a couple go-to flavors for this reason!

In addition to all the yummy ice cream flavors, customers can order a coffee, sundaes, milkshakes, floats, ice cream sandwiches, or an ice cream hot chocolate.

Good luck deciding which sweet treat to get, it all sounds too good!

It wouldn’t be an NYC food hall without some of the best pizza in NYC, would it?

With their original location in Williamsburg, Fornino has expanded and spread its dough and deliciousness into DUMBO.

It may be difficult to curb that pizza craving when visiting New York (it’s even harder when you live here), but luckily, Fornino has the perfect remedy to send you home with a full belly and a cured craving.

Keep in mind, there’s more to Fornino than just pizza. Their menu offers some starters, like meatballs, rice balls, fried potatoes, Italian corn on the cob, and much more. They follow those up with sweet or savory salads as well as sandwiches and a bunch of different pizza options.

These aren’t just some plain old pizzas. Try any one of their specialty pizzas, you won’t be disappointed!

  • Lombardi— Mozz, Prosciutto, arugula, parmesan, & lemon zest
  • Salsiccia di Pollo—Tomato, chicken sausage, roast peppers, caramelized onion, mozz, & rosemary
  • Pugilese— Mozz, fennel sausage, broccoli rabe, fresno chili, & parmesan

While there are many more specialty pies, also enjoy the classics like Marinara or Margherita!

This spot also offers a number of fun sweets and beverages, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic. There is no lack of satisfaction here at Fornino. Be sure to also check out our guide to best pizza in Brooklyn too!

Tiki & Comfort Food

If you love Jacob’s Pickles at Time Out Market New York, you will love Tiki Chick, created by the same guy, Jacob Hadjigeorgis.

Under the umbrella of Pickle Hospitality, which is where Jacob’s Pickles and Tiki Chick fall, Jacob and his team run a number of other establishments. So he’s done it before and he’s done it again! In 2020, the man behind the famous pickles decided to take another shot at Southern comfort food and some tropically inspired cocktails.

At the Time Out Market New York location, try their buttermilk fried chicken sandwiches served in a variety of ways (with pickle chips of course).

Add some regular fries, cheese fries, or tiki style fries to complete the feast. And don’t forget to add one of those frozen tropical cocktails I mentioned earlier.

After a visit to the Time Out Market pop-up location, feel free to check out the original Tiki Chick location on the Upper West Side in Manhattan.
