Beyonce's Favorite Pizza and Artisan Chocolate In Carroll Gardens
Prepare yourselves for the pizza everyone can't stop talking about at Lucali's. This BYOB pizzeria is a neighborhood-favorite, offering up visual charm with its warm candle-lit glow and exposed brick-oven/marble countertop workstation while giving you and yours some in-house “entertainment” as you watch the pizzaiolo craft everything from thin crust doughs to oversized calzones. Also, in keeping with its old-school charm, Lucali is cash-only—so definitely keep that in mind before grabbing a seat.
After pizza heaven, switch to chocolate heaven at Raaka Chocolate. Raaka is a factory in the middle of Brooklyn that whips up insanely beautiful (and delicious) artisanal chocolate bars. Plus, they host tours and cacao grinding classes—you can even walk away with your own creation. A tour and tasting is just $15, and they take place on both weekend days at 1:30 p.m.
