Set Sail for Carribean Fare Followed by an Exploration of Germany through Beer
With some quirky decor inspired by its Caribbean roots (see: its tropical entrance, rustic bar dressed in old-school knick-knacks—like vintage firearms and amber glass bottles—and eclectic local wall art), the standout at Brooklyn Moon is the food. Considering the laid-back setting and standout menu options like deep-fried bacon-wrapped plantains and curry mussels, this restaurant does the Caribbean proud.
After dinner, head down the block to Black Forest Brooklyn, where you’ll switch from Caribbean influence to all-things-German. With a massive, open-concept layout complemented by reclaimed wood partitions, a skylight revealing their rooftop garden, and stylized portraits representing the cultural roots of Black Forest’s married owners, this trendy beer garden is more than a little proud of its German beer selection. Sizes come in a half liter, liter, and two-liter (aka literally a giant glass boot). Pair your glass boot with their Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (a Black Forest cherry gateau) for dessert.
