Noodle Pudding Is Your Charming Italian Dinner Date in Brooklyn Heights
This plan has unfortunately expired! See what's new here.
We often like to discover new coffee shops as precursors to great dates—because when you have some energy, the rest of the night tends to unfold well. That's where Cranberry's in Brooklyn Heights comes in. This cozy neighborhood bakery and coffee shop doles out everything from blueberry crumb cake to chocolate chip biscotti, all made with love of course. We recommend grabbing a couple of coffees, and maybe a dessert to share at home later. FYI, they close at 5 p.m., so be sure to get there early or come on a weekend.
Then, let Noodle Pudding be your guide to a full belly. The portions here are not to be taken lightly, so don’t say you haven’t been warned. This charming, traditional restaurant delivers authentic Italian ambience with equally authentic flavors, and if you’re having trouble deciding on a dish, you certainly can’t go wrong with one of their pasta options, including hand rolled whole wheat pennette and capelli d’angelo al pomodoro. Just be sure to break out those Benjamins, because this place is strictly cash-only. This place doesn’t accept reservations, so if you run into a lengthy wait, you might want to consider grabbing a drink at The Binc just down the block.
